F-Word in Enchanted
The rumor going around online is that in one of the previews for the new Disney movie Enchanted, you can hear someone say "Get the f*ck outta here."

The preview in question shows the Prince attacking a bus. The exclamation can be heard around 30 seconds into it, as the bus driver is walking out of the bus.

The first time I listened to it, it definitely sounded like "Get the f*ck outta here." But when I listened to it again, it sounded more like "Get that bus outta here." Basically, it seems to me it could be interpreted either way. Who's to say what the correct way of hearing it is.

I haven't seen the movie, but I assume this scene must occur in the theatrical version as well. It will be interesting to see if the ambiguous phrase makes it into the DVD version, or if it will be edited out. (via Cinematical)

Definitely sounds like 'bus' to me. And I did see the movie this past weekend, remember listening to the background during that scene, and don't remember being shocked by hearing the F-word.

Every time I listen to this, I just hear "Get that bus outta here!" Which also seems like it would fit in well with what the other people in the crowd are saying. But if people want to believe it says otherwise, I won't stop them.

What is the deal with people finding and/or hearing obscene material in Disney movies?

Just a theory: SOME of the parents who purchase Disney stuff are a wee bit paranoid about "obscenity" in the media and its alleged effect(s) on the impressionable minds of their kids, leading them to "find" nasty stuff where it doesn't exist.

Remember the "penis" in the Little Mermaid?

It is "bus", a phrase can sound like a lot of things if you want it to, but if you listen to it with an open mind and not an agenda of wanting to expose Disney for the evil entity that they are, you will hear "bus".

I heard "Get that bus outta there!"

Bus is a little obscured by the sounds of traffic and other voices, but the word "that" is pretty clear.

Was the line uttered by Lady Mondegreen?

Yeah, I heard bus too when I saw the trailer a few weeks back. It's only from someone suggesting it might be the F word that I thought it might be mistaken for that. But in such a context why would anyone even think it was the F word???

Silly people.

I heard the F word the first time. The second time I heard bus.

But I'm choosing to believe it's the F bomb. raspberry Random swearing is always hilarious.

It's one of those combinations of low quality audio and similar sounding words. Like "bucket".

LOL

When I was a waitress my friend you to say to low tippers....F you very much...It sounded like Thank you very much...I am sure they thought they heard the F word and they did...But wouldn't think she had really said that...So my point is we think we hear that word,and it isn't ...but it could be.....

if you listen real close, just before the voice says: "Get the bus/f*ck out of here", you can clearly hear what sounds like Martin Short as Ed Grimley shouting: "Let me grab your chotskis, for Pete's sake". That would explain the "Get the..." response. I'm personally suprised that Disney would still hire Short after the Minnie Mouse- diddlefinger episode at Main Street, USA a few years back. That dude needs help. Go finger. Uh, figure. Sorry

It definitely says "Get that bus outta there." Parents are way too paranoid. But even so, who cares if some random background guy drops the f-bomb? I sure the kid is more scarred by the parent making a big deal out of it.

It definitely says the "f" word. I heard it while I was just casually watching the movie and rewound it to listen again and even brought in my bro-in-law. We both agree it is def. foul language. Apparently an extra said it on scene and Disney did not catch it. I am sure it was not thrown in there on purpose, even with all the other sexual innuendoes Disney has included in their movies.

I have seen the film 4 times with my daughter twice at the Cinema and have to say that I never noticed any swear words in the movie. I would have thought that Disney studios would have been more thorough than to leave a swear word in the released version of the film.

We are watching the film over and over again and I am certain that we are hearing "bus" and not the swear word. This film has been my daughter's stress reliever from school.

We have the movie and there was no question they said "get that bus outta here". People hear or mis hear if you will, what they choose. Disney would never include such language. That's something you can always count on.
