  • Despite its flaws, Fuck does manage to leave you energised and determined to fight to the death to defend freedom of speech - or at least sit back and fire off a few swear words of your own in celebration. Shit, piss, fuck, etc...

  • It's all reasonable but unoriginal stuff.

  • This could have been far more illuminating, challenging, or at the very least entertaining.

  • The insight-neutral scrag ends of what feels like ten decent documentaries on censorship, semantics, social policy and broadcasting coalesce in this painfully self-satisfied and poorly made 'shock-doc'.

  • An example of the very worst kind of documentary film-making. The picture contains no insight, no research and no etymological answers. It is simply a string of choppily edited interviews with comedians, porn actors and the morally outraged.

  • A moderately amusing documentary about the second most offensive word in the English language.

  • A film on our favorite word by Steve Anderson. The only fault I can find with this comprehensive and extremely entertaining symposium is that among the 35 people interviewed, no openly queer representative...

    Funny and controversial documentary, that investigate taboos in society about the word FUCK. Just like The Aristocrats, F*uck, is a entertaining film. Problem: the absence of answers and research. In this way, the documentary don't looks what really is the point, what the reason of the motion picture? Even Steve Anderson know. At least it's a fun trip.

    a interesting and fun doc on the word fuck, its origins and use in the modern times, focusing mainly on its use in the entertainment industry, its effects,and hurdles the word brings,also delving intowhy the word is what it is, some entertertaining interviews,including, kevin smith, billy connolly, hunter s thompson and many others, the film brings up interesting facts, and events from the past, where,indecentcy and swearing has come into play, now all we need is a doc on the word c**t

    -Good? No. -Informative? No. -Audacious? No. -Entertaining? Barely. -Innovative? No -Necessary? No. Even This Film is Not Yet Rated was more "necessary". -Daring? Yes The word "fuck" and its variations are used 857 times, a figure that would mean a millionaire sum of money, as explained in the film. This documentary is exclusively for the lovers of the word and for those who overuse it every damn single second of their lives. If you're looking for an informative and cultural piece, stay away. As for Bill Plympton, either he made a mistake without knowing it beforehand, or he was paid a lot. 51/100
