Movie watchdog group: 'Crash' has most curse words

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ It's up for several honors at Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony, but ``Crash'' already has taken first prize for the most curse words in a film nominated for best picture.

FamilyMediaGuide.com, which tracks incidents of profanity, sex, violence and tobacco use in films, reported Tuesday that ``Crash'' had 182 expletives, including 99 utterances of the F-word.

The movie, about racial tensions in Los Angeles, is nominated for six Oscars, including best picture, best director, best screenplay and best supporting actor.

``Brokeback Mountain'' ranked second among best picture nominees with 92 curse words, followed by ``Munich'' with 22, according to FamilyMediaGuide.com.

The record for most profanities in a film to win the best picture Oscar is held by the Vietnam War drama ``Platoon,'' with 329. The Vietnam War drama ``The Deer Hunter'' is second with 208.

FamilyMediaGuide says it makes no judgment on a movie's value, but simply tracks instances of profanity, sex, violence and tobacco use as a guide to parents.
