Uncut Gems rocked viewers with its high-stakes action and a power-house (although criminally overlooked by the Academy) performance by lead Adam Sandler when it dropped on Netflix earlier this year, but it was also notable for its super sweary script.

And now, Netflix has done the hard work for you and produced a super-cut of every single one of the film's 560 F-bombs.

Uncut Gems has the fourth most uses of the word "fuck" in movie history and as a result the clip, which NetflixFilm shared on Twitter, lasts just over four minutes. Considering the film has a 2h15m runtime, that means that 3 per cent of the entire film is that single word. Impressive.

It's still beaten by 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street though, which saw Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in particular turning the air blue throughout.

Uncut Gems follows New York City jeweller and gambling addict Howard Ratner (Sandler) who is forever searching for the next big score, and when he acquires a rare black opal he thinks he's found the ultimate pay-day.

He decides to sell the jewel but his plan will only work if a series of high-stakes bets come off. As loan sharks and dangerous enemies close in on Howard, while his relationships with his estranged wife Dinah (Idina Menzel) and his girlfriend Julia (Julia Fox) also deteriorate, Howard faces a struggle to stay alive.

The film also co-stars Lakeith Stanfield, Kevin Garnett, Guardians of the Galaxy star Pom Klementieff and musician The Weeknd.

Sandler scooped the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead for his role as Howard earlier this year and he took the opportunity to not only praise independent film but also rip apart all the people who have criticised him over the years.

"In all seriousness, independent films have been a big part of the Adam Sandler ecosystem," he said, before adding, "I have tried to sell my truths with a truly independent spirit, while also cashing some truly disturbingly large paychecks."

Uncut Gems is available to watch on Netflix worldwide.
