A definitive look at the famous expletive, FUCK explores how this oft-used word, still widely seen as obscene, somehow permeates every aspect of our culture -- from Hollywood, to the schoolyard, to the Senate floor in Washington D.C., where it is at the very center of the ongoing debate on Free Speech. FUCK examines the word's impact through various interviews, film and television clips, and original animation by Oscar-nominee Bill Plympton. Scholars and linguists examine its long and colorful history; comedians, actors, and writers who have charted and popularized the word defend their Constitutional right to use it. Even people who do "it" for living are interviewed, in an effort to discover what it is about this one syllable that both unites and polarizes people.
Featuring interviews with: Drew Carey, Billy Connolly, Pat Boone, Sam Donaldson, Janeane Garafalo, Ice-T, Ron Jeremy, Bill Maher, Michael Medved, Alanis Morrisette, Kevin Smith, Hunter S. Thompson, Steven Bochco, David Milch, Tera Patrick, Ben Bradlee, Miss Manners and more...
