The Last Detail

The undisputed swearing champ for five years.

When this darkly-funny comedy about Navy hard-asses escorting a court-martialed seaman hit theaters in ’73, it upped the ante on F-words in mainstream films.

Coming in, the record was 25, set a year before by Last Tango in Paris.

With 65 variations on the word fudge, Last Detail stayed atop the charts until ’78, when Blue Collar let fly with 158 fricks.

Last Detail has nothing on modern-day swear-fests like The Wolf of Wall Street (569 F-bombs), but no matter whether you love or hate potty mouths, this is one of Jack Nicholson’s best.

See (and listen) for yourself.
