Nobody takes advantage of a well-placed F-bomb quite like the Weinstein Co. The studio's latest demonstration of the martyring -- and marketing -- power of profanity is a brief YouTube video of Judi Dench, resurrected as M., her deceased character from the James Bond series, decrying the Motion Picture Assn. of America.
