The Cooler is exactly the kind of film my parents would like

It has romance (for my Mum). It has violence (for my Dad). And it does not have much swearing in it.

At least that is what I thought when I left. I enjoyed it too for what it is worth. But then i remembered that Alec Baldwin only really has one line, repeated over, and over, in the film. “What the fuck?” Or as said in proper gangsterese “Whadafug?” Now I do not consider whadafug to be swearing, obviously as I consider this to be a good film for my parents. But is it? Can fug be distinticively pulled out as fuck to the degree that my mother will wince? I don’t know, but I am interested to try it out.

Oh, and yet another film where Maria Bello holds the film together with a cleverly understated performance. Couple this with plot wandering into the idea of people who are “naturally lucky” (liek Intacto last year) and it makes the whole film a real joy. But is whadafug swearing.
