The A To Z Of Richard Curtis | Fucketty-fuck
F
Fucketty-fuck

Schooled at Harrow but a paid-up graduate of The Malcolm Tucker Epic Fucking Swearing Academy, Curtis has peppered his scripts with enough fucks, bloodys and arses to fill the deepest of swear jars. Four Weddings And A Funeral's opening oath-athon, for instance, features 11 fucks and a bugger" catapulting it to the very bottom of Mary Whitehouse's favourite movie intros. Without getting mathematical, Four Weddings' tally of 26 fucks is comfortably outstripped by Bridget Jones and her even-more-liberally sweary Diary. That script boasts an ear-watering 48 fucks, eight shits, five bastards and a couple of buggers or two. Not that we're f*cking counting.
