Gene Wilder: Today's Movies Too Vulgar!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Gene Wilder may be 80 but he hasn't been seen in a movie in decades. While young fans might not actively think about it, there are generations of moviegoers who have wondered where he's been.

He recently sat down for an interview with Robert Osborne at the 92nd Street Y and answered that exact question, plus some insights into the greatest films of his career.

So it's the swearing.

The proliferation of profanity has kept the comedic genius of Gene Wilder from the big screen. Even as a fan of the English language at it's most bawdy, it's hard not to be saddened by this.

So is the swearing in today's movies out of control? Has it gone beyond serving a purpose and just now and exercise in just how far you can push the envelope? Sound off below!

I hate films with a lot of vulgarity. I feel like I am being ripped off each time I see a comedy that is nothing more than a slurr of FU's and sexual innuendos. I feel like I am paying to witness an inside joke. The films I like best and think are the funniest ...often rely on true humor. The crudeness that Hollywood is portraying right now ...is a sad mess. I am all for Hollywood cleaning itself up.
