List RulesMovies where the kids have no problem saying bad words.

Having child actors swearing in movies is always good for a laugh. That's why it is time to determine the best movies with kids cursing. There's something about funny little children using inappropriate language that elicits a chuckle, even if you feel guilty about it afterward. There are uses other than comedic, though. Sometimes foul-mouthed kids can give you a chill when used in horror films. The greatest movies with kids cursing have provided us with memorable scenes, like the profane demonic rants of Linda Blair in The Exorcist or the adolescent insult Henry Thomas lobbies at his brother in E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. And who can forget the entirety of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, which was practically a thesis on children using bad words?

But which movies with swearing will make it to the top of the list? Vote up the best movies with kids cussing from the list below. If you don't see one of your favorites here, please add it. Don't forget to check back to see how other users are ranking your picks.
