We weren't the biggest fans of The Wolf Of Wall Street. But we are big fans of dropping the F-bomb, so color us impressed that the movie allegedly uses the word "fuck" more than any other film in history.

According to this Wikipedia list of movies that use "fuck" the most - and of course there's a Wikipedia list - characters in Martin Scorsese's boiler room drama say the magic word 506 times over the movie's 179-minute duration.

Though that puts Wolf at the top of the heap in raw number of "fucks," it's not at the top in frequency. Gary Oldman's Nil By Mouth gets that honor, at 3.34 fucks-a-minute.

We should note, we're not counting the film Fuck, a documentary on the word, because who really gives a hoot?
