Top 10 Movies with A Lot of Profanity and Swearing (EXPLICIT)

These movies might be full of offensive language, but let’s face it, they’re also effing fantastic. Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 movies with a lot of profanity and swearing.

For this list, we’ve chosen movies that aren’t just known for the number of expletives they drop throughout, but also for their box office and critical success.

#10: “Full Metal Jacket” (1987)

This classic Stanley Kubrick film isn’t only intense, dark and occasionally hilarious – but it’s also full of swear words. 193 of them, to be exact. What’s more is that the majority of them come from the movie’s drill Sergeant Hartman, played by R. Lee Ermey. Some of the war flick’s most memorable scenes involve him cursing at a pretty fast rate – and quite inventively, too. So don’t piss him off, or you’ll have just signed your own death warrant.

#9: “The Big Lebowski” (1998)

Striking quite a balance between being suspenseful and side-splittingly hilarious, this Coen brothers film is also known for being delightfully rude. Whether it’s The Dude arguing with Walter about the ransom in a briefcase, or Walter telling Donny to shut the eff up – loudly – some of this movie’s best moments involve them using at least one swear word. But don’t watch the edited-for-TV version, because really, nothing makes sense about finding a stranger in the Alps.

#8: “Reservoir Dogs” (1992)

It’s one of Quentin Tarantino’s most iconic films, and also one of his most profane. In fact, f-bombs get dropped so often in this movie about a group of guys going on a diamond heist, there’s an average of 2.71 of them per minute. There are plenty of other cuss words here as well, particularly in “Reservoir Dogs”’ opening scene in which Tarantino’s own character argues with Edward Bunker’s over the meaning of Madonna’s songs.

#7: “Casino” (1995)

If your idea of an enjoyable movie is seeing Joe Pesci swear like a sailor, look no further than this. With the f-word uttered a staggering 422 times, this movie has a number of four-letter words to match its toughness and violence. Pesci’s performance as Nicky Santoro didn’t earn him the acclaim that his performance in “GoodFellas” did five years earlier – more on that later – but his extremely liberal dropping of f-bombs made him that much more menacing.

#6: “Pulp Fiction” (1994)

With f-bombs, sexual references and even racial slurs aplenty, this movie shows Quentin Tarantino’s writing at its most sharp and arguably, most foul-mouthed. From Samuel L. Jackson asking you whether or not you speak English to his rather profane wallet, or when John Travolta accidentally kills a guy in the car to Bruce Willis screaming curses over his missing gold watch, the swearing in this movie is everywhere. And frankly, it’s much better off for it.

#5: “Clerks” (1994) & “Clerks II” (2006)

When your movie gets an NC-17 rating simply for the language used in it, you know your viewers are in for one foul-mouthed adventure. Following an appeal to scale the rating back to R without changing anything else about it, the first black-and-white “Clerks” movie – and its 2006 sequel – were allowed to become classics. After all, the two comedies are what they are thanks to Jay and Silent Bob’s antics as well as their high curse counts.

#4: “South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut” (1999)

Taking just about every swear word you can think of and attaching it to cartoon children is a recipe for controversy, and Matt Stone and Trey Parker did just that with South Park as a TV show. But with their movie, they took it to a whole different level. Throughout the film, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny curse their way through a war between the U.S. and Canada, in a movie that set the world record for the most swearing in an animated film.

#3: “Scarface” (1983)

This movie isn’t just intense in terms of its violence and depiction of hard drug use; it’s also intense based on the number of four-letter words you hear throughout. Although “Scarface” doesn’t come close to the record for most f-bombs in a movie – in fact, there’s only an average of 1.21 per minute, Tony Montana’s introduction to his little friend as well as his, err… interesting comparisons between Miami, capitalism and sex make the swearing both memorable and very quotable.

#2: “GoodFellas” (1990)

Martin Scorsese’s got one hell of a penchant for profanity in many of his films – you’ll understand why once we get to the number one entry on this list – and this movie is one of the best examples of that. In this classic early ‘90s mobster flick, we hear 300 different uses of the f word for an average of 2.05 per minute. Many of these utterings are spoken by Joe Pesci, though “GoodFellas” also stars Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta – but it’s Pesci who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his profane performance.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- “In the Loop” (2009)
- “District 9” (2009)
- “The Town” (2010)
- “Nil by Mouth” (1997)

#1: “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013)

For a movie that has examples of the biggest kinds of excess you can think of – heavy drug use, wild sex, lots of money, dangerous criminal activity and just generally living large – it’s hardly a surprise that “The Wolf of Wall Street” also has the profanity to match all of that. No matter which cast member is speaking at any moment, it seems like swearing is quite simply unavoidable. With the f bomb being used 569 times, the black comedy broke the record for the highest use of the word within a non-documentary film. Shiiiiiiit.
