Do you feel modern film makers sometime overdo the "dirty" dialog to the point


of being tedious or creates an unneeded distraction to the overall plot? The films of Quentin Tarantino come immediately to mind. I also like actors Seth Rogen and Joe Pesci, but they tend to be in films that often bore me to tears with the cursing. I know real life is hardly free of dirty words, but am I alone to think cursing often gets tedious in films?

    Thief12, the sad thing I feel is the overuse of it distracts from an otherwise good storyline. I honestly get bored with an exaggerated amount of cursing. Thanks for answering!

    I agree, Tim. I don't know anyone that doesn't utter a profanity every now and then but nothing like the dialog in some of these films. If film makers are looking for realism, they are barking up the wrong tree!

    IDONO, granted women curse more than they did when I was a kid. But to be fair- the first people I EVER heard drop the F bomb were every one male, and bad habits of women don't explain say Tarantino's obsession with raunchy language.
