The F-Bomb
« on: January 04, 2007, 10:40:20 PM »
There are many wonderful movies out there. And then there are ten times as many bad movies. The subject of whether a movie is good or bad does not apply here. Can anyone think of a scene in a movie where it would be funny if the f-bomb was dropped?
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!

Any time the f-bomb is mentioned in movies, the first movie that comes to mind is the classic Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Steve Martin's scene in the Rental Car place with the great Edie McClurg is timeless. Sure, the f-bomb is uttered in an endless streak, but it fits the scene. Steve's character has gone through hell, and he deserves a little release. Plus, Edie's comeback is too perfect.


That scene, I believe, is the only reason the MPAA gave that movie an R rating, as opposed to PG-13, which I believe it truly deserved.

Does anyone remember the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where Jones just finishes a tiring fight scene, then this big guy with a huge sword is waiting for him? And then Indy just pulls out his gun and shoots him?

I could have swore that when I first watched the movie, Indy says "Ah F-ck it" when he pulls out the gun and shoots him...And if you watch it now, you can see him mouth something when he pulls the gun out. But, it looks like they edited that line out. They must have edited it when they released it to VHS/DVD.

IMHO they should have left that line in...truly a funny scene, which is made better by that line.

Speaking of mouthing words,

Gammer just reminded me of that scene in Galaxy Quest when the crew encounters that room on the ship with the smashing thingies that they must pass through in order to get to the Omega 13 device, and Lieutenant Tawny Madison(Sigourney Weaver) says "Well screw that!", only her mouth says "Well fuck that!!", so it was dubbed to avoid a harsher rating. It would have been infinitely funnier if she said the f-word!

I love watching the TV edit of Back to the Future because they always use the same sample of Marty saying, "HOLY jeez!"

That always pissed me off.

I don't know if this applies to the US version, but the UK TV edit of Die Hard had Bruce Willis say "Yippe-kai-ay, Keemosabe" (I have no idea if I've spelt those two words correctly).

Although it was not spoken, an f-bomb was used in an episode of The Simpsons.

Throughout the entire episode, Homer was angry that Mr. Burns couldn't remember his name. Time and time again, he'd say "Who the devil are you?" and "Smithers, who is this fellow?", and Homer would get more and more ticked off.

Finally, Homer decided to send a box of chocolates to Mr. Burns, with their family photo beneath the chocolates. Mr. Burns and Smithers finish all the chocolates, and Mr. Burns remembers each member of the family as their faces are revealed, leaving Homer for last. Before his face is revealed, Smithers offers the final chocolate to Mr. Burns, but Mr. Burns recognizes the type of chocolate as one he does not like, so he throws the box away. But to add insult to injury, Mr. Burns sends a thank-you note to the Simpson family, thanking Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, but not Homer.

As Homer reads the note, he realizes his name is not there, and quietly, yet with the tone of a bear ready to maul, says "Marge, will you and the kids give me a moment alone please?" As they leave the room, terrified, Homer throws his arms in the air and shouts F---

*BLAST!!* The organ of the First Church of Springfield rings out full blast, causing the birds to flee...

Ned Flanders says "That's the loudest profanity I've ever heard!"

keemosabe.  That's funny.  If memory serves me, I think in the US they just chopped it off, he just says yippie-kai-yay.

I always thought the TV edit of Breakfast Club had some funny edits.  "Eat Slop!" instead of "Eat Sh*t" is particularily good.

STAR WARS: REVENG OF THE SITH
Obi Wan Kenobi has just dueled his way through lava and falling scraps of metal against his former padiwan, Darth Vader. Kenobi leaps atop a hillside and begins his dramatic dialogue: "You were the chosen one!!" Drunk with pride, Vader insists that his power is unchallengable. As he floats above a river of lava, standing precariously aboard a narrow platform, his once-friend Obi-Wan pleads with him to reconsider. Lightsaber aglow, Vader ignores the cautions of his enemy, and soars overhead his opponent. Obi-Wan thrusts and slices his saber, with inevitable results. Vader falls with a thud to the ground, prostrate and broken; his arms and legs severed from his body. And with his head buried in the hot sand of the construction zone, let's out a horrific and deafening

"F*CK."

Nice one J-Proof. For that scene I was actually thinking that when Obi-Wan says, "Don't try it" Anakin should've responded with a resounding "F*ck You" as he leaped. On a side note, I think the Back to the Future movies would've have had an entirely different tone if Michael J Fox replaced "this is heavy" with "this is f*cked up."

I always liked Marge's line from the Jerry Springer Halloween episode: "I'm so f*cking embarrassed."

I don't remember what the movie was, but I once saw a TV edit where the characters kept saying stuff like "You Viking idiot," and "I'm gonna Viking kick your ass." It was hilarious.

You funking prink.
