"Wolf of Wall Street" set a record when it premiered on Christmas Day last week... but not at the box office.

Instead, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio's latest team-up scored the top spot for "f-bombs" in a non-documentary feature film with the profanity uttered a staggering 506 times over the course of 180 minutes, Variety reported.

"Scorsese’s 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is all about excess. From orgies on a plane to cocaine and cash (or 'fun coupons' as DiCaprio’s character calls them), the financial drama thrives in taking it up a notch," the entertainment magazine writes. "So it should be no surprise that Paramount’s R-rated film sets the all-time record for the use of the f-word."

"The Wolf of Wall Street" beat out Spike Lee's 1999 crime thriller "Summer of Sam," which boasted 435 instances of the f-word in 142 minutes.

Scorsese is no stranger to strong language in his films. Two of the Oscar-winning director's other notable projects, "Casino" and "Goodfellas," also fall in the top 20 films with the most profanity (422 and 300 f-bombs respectively).

The all-time profanity record is held by a 2005 documentary on the f-word itself where the curse word is said 857 times in just 93 minutes, according to USA Today.
