Wow.. this guy knows nothing about movies. He looks to shield anyone who abides by his short-sided attitude from real life. People curse in real life. Not everyone will think like you do (I know.. what a S H O C K E R!!!). If a movie has a few curse words, he knocks off a point or two seemingly just on general principle. What a joke.
