Hear all the F-words uttered in 'Wolf of Wall Street' -- VIDEO

Screen Junkies, what tricksters! The YouTube channel put out a video Tuesday touting it was a supercut of just the “F” words in The Wolf of Wall Street. And by “F” words, they meant literally all the words that begin with “F” said in the film — save the actual F-word.

The video’s premise is a play on the number of times “f—” is uttered in the film, an unclear number that is somewhere in the 500s.

'The Wolf of Wall Street' Honest Trailer: Leonardo NoOscaro yells to excess, the return of fat f%@king Jonah Hill -- VIDEO

With a rate of about 3.16 f-bombs dropped per minute, The Wolf of Wall Street is not a film you want to watch with your grandma.

But thanks to our friends at Screen Junkies, we can relive the f%@king craziness of the Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio collaboration from last year. DiCaprio yelled his way to another Oscar nomination for his performance but was beat by his own co-star, Dallas Oscar Stealers Club, a.k.a Matthew McConaughey. However, the film may be more remembered for its theme of excess — from the use of drugs and running time to the number of people in suits listening to DiCaprio talk/going nuts — and the moment when Jonah Hill stopped trying to be the fat funny guy in comedies and started being the fat funny guy in Scorsese films. Just watch the f%@king trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Matthew McConaughey's 'Wolf of Wall Street' chest thump gets a remix -- VIDEO

WOLF-OF-WALL-STREET-REMIX.jpg

For a character quirk that was never written into the original script, Matthew McConaughey’s now-infamous chest thump in The Wolf of Wall Street has clearly struck a chord — especially with the folks over at Eclectic Method who have taken it upon themselves to remix the rhythmic beat into an uptempo tune.

McConaughey’s chest thumping, laced with a dance rhythm, serves as the back beat for the remixed track, which also cuts in other sounds heavily used throughout the Martin Scorsese film.

Oscar Season: The Musical! What would this year's Best Picture nominees be like on Broadway? -- VIDEO

Oscar-Season-The-Musical.jpg

Though Frozen was nominated for two Oscars this year, including Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, the crop of nine Best Picture nominees doesn’t include a musical.

But what would happen if you took the nine very different films and made them into a musical? You would get some hilarious high-kicking results. From The Wolf of Wall Street cursing on beat to an American Hustle bathroom showdown reminiscent of Rent, it’s clear some of these musical ideas work better than others. Like most Oscar-related parodies that have been happening lately, 12 Years a Slave is respectfully not given a full production number. But if you ever wanted to see Dallas Buyers Club‘s Ron Woodroof do a kick-line next to Philomena, you are in luck! Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Leonardo DiCaprio on 'Titanic': 'I'm incredibly proud of it'

Remember that time when Leonardo DiCaprio starred in that one movie about that one boat? Titanic, it might have been called? Just kidding. We know it’s Titanic because we’ve watched it a million times, and DiCaprio appreciates that. READ FULL STORY

'Wolf of Wall Street' QuickDraw: Fewer clothes, still vulgar

Wolf-Wall-Street-QuickDraw.jpg

Anyone who’s seen The Wolf of Wall Street knows it really earned that ‘R’ rating. So what would the film look like if the naked ladies were stick figures and the bad words were bleeped? Still pretty dirty, actually.

Check out EW’s QuickDraw of the Oscar nominee below, and note how Leonardo DiCaprio’s voice can make anything sexy — even a doodle. (Warning: NSFW) READ FULL STORY

Jonah Hill hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend: Talk about it here!

No disrespect to Jonah Hill, but on some level, his upcoming SNL hat trick raises just one question: Hill is about to host Saturday Night Live for the third time. Yet his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio hasn’t hosted even once? Even worse, Leo’s never stopped by Studio 8H for so much as a cameo? This is so outrageous I’m starting to feel short of breath. Quick, somebody grab me a quaalude!

Ahhh, there we go. Now, what was I saying? Oh yes — Jonah Hill’s back on SNL this weekend, which means a few things. One, there’s a pretty good chance we’ll see the third recurrence of Adam Grossman, a.k.a. that 6-year-old kid who loves Benihana and talking like a Borscht Belt comedian. (Side note: Man, remember when Casey Wilson was on SNL? Side-side note: Man, 2008 Jonah Hill looked… different.)

The sweariest movie in Academy history, who's up for an EGOT, and more 2014 Oscars talking points

Want to win friends and influence people using your intimate knowledge of this year’s Oscar nominees — and how they stack up against Academy history? Never fear: EW’s got you covered. (Caution: Nerd alert!)

- It’s unclear how many times the F-word is used in The Wolf of Wall Street. Vulture says it’s 569; Slate says it’s 544; some guy at some blog says it’s 506. In any case, it’s one of the most profanity-laced films in history and certainly the swearingest movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture. Wolf director Martin Scorsese’s own Goodfellas, with a mere 300 documented “f—“s, is the previous record holder.

- American Hustle is the 15th film to receive nods in every acting category. David O. Russell is the first director to helm two movies (back to back, no less) that have both achieved this feat. No movie has ever won all four acting awards, though A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) and Network (1976) got three wins apiece. Also worth noting: While quadfectas generally snag at least one acting award, only two (1942’s Mrs. Miniver and 1953’s From Here to Eternity) have ever managed a Best Picture win.

'The Wolf of Wall Street': Greed is awesome. No, wait...awful!

wolf-of-wall-street-leonardo-dicaprio.jpg

Money is a drug in The Wolf of Wall Street — the most powerful intoxicant “of all the drugs under God’s blue heaven,” the movie’s ­depraved protagonist, Jordan Belfort, blusters in the opening scene. There’s a lot of substance abuse in Martin ­Scorsese’s polarizing new movie — pills by the fistful, cocaine by the shovel, and women by the hour (they’re mostly treated as substances, and mostly abused). But it’s cash, pumped in via telephone, ticker, and wire transfer, that tops them all. In one of the film’s most entertaining scenes, Belfort, played with witty belligerence by Leonardo DiCaprio, tosses his favorite fix at a pair of federal agents, who walk away. He’s flummoxed: Why aren’t they junkies too?

The Wolf of Wall Street’s detractors have faulted the filmmakers for failing to maintain a critical distance from their repellent characters. In turn, some of its champions have belittled those critics as prigs who want a movie’s moral boundaries drawn in bold black lines and its judgments made reassuringly clear. The dispute has been noisy and nasty (turns out that cocaine really does make people angry!). My own take: The blazing and funny Wolf doesn’t lack moral per­spective, but it’s awfully self-serving about where it places its indignation. Treating money as a drug turns Belfort’s story from one of crime and (lack of) punishment into an allegory of ­addiction — of excess leading to downfall, recovery, and, possibly, relapse. It’s an unsustainable metaphor that, just as the system did, lets him off too easily.
