For Millennials. By Millennials.
‘Uncut Gems’ is in theaters and the movie is getting serious hype for being one of the most profane movies ever. The Adam Sandler starer film also casts Abel Tesfaye, The Weeknd. And Abel is appreciating the movie’s high F word-count.
Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie, the drama, crime and comedy movie ‘Uncut Gems’ is set in the Manhattan diamond district and follows the life of Howard Ratner, a jeweler played by Adam Sandler. He is charismatic and clever. The movie also stars Julia Fox as Julia, Idina Menzel as Dinah, Lakeith Stanfield as Demany, and The Weeknd as The Weeknd. (Abel Tesfaye.)
The story is essentially about Howard, who keeps taking money from people and never pays it back. While telling others he is broke, he keeps placing bets to win a profit.

The Weeknd appreciates the movie’s F-word count
Not only does the movie Uncut Gems is rated ‘R’, but it also has one of the most profane languages across films.
According to The Independent, ‘Uncut Gems’ features the F word 408 times. This means it has the seventh-most F words in film history.
Mathematically, this equates to one F word per three minutes of the entire movie duration.
This also means that the movie is no longer appropriate for young children, or those who don’t like hearing the profane language. But Abel Tesfaye a.k.a The Weeknd, who also stars in the film, thinks that it’s pretty cool.
Mark Abadi, an author, and journalist shared the information on his Twitter handle.
The Weeknd quote retweeted, replying “great feat.”

The Weeknd stans the high F word count. And personally, we also think it’s no reason to miss out on the movie. Especially if you want to see Abel Tesfaye on the big screen, that too with Adam Sandler. We surely won’t be missing out on ‘Uncut Gems’.
