Kill Bill Vol. 1 Was The First Quentin Tarantino Movie To Feature Less Than 100 Utterances Of The F-Bomb
In addition to grisly violence, quippy dialogue, and stylish camerawork, explicit language is something you commonly expect in Quentin Tarantino’s films. The screenwriter-director is prone to giving characters four-letter-words and other taboo things to say, to the point of controversy, but Kill Bill Vol. 1 was the first time there were less than 100 utterances of the f-word in one of his films.
As it was extensively researched and reported by The Dallas Observer, there are only 16 times when the f-bomb was dropped. Similarly, there was only 26 times the cuss is said in Kill Bill: Vol. 2. While that’s certainly more times than, say, The Angry Birds Movie 2, it’s admittedly restrained for Tarantino, who used the f-word between 130 and 269 fucking times in his previous three films.
