Occasional Coarse Language is a 1998 Australian romantic comedy film about a young woman who loses her boyfriend and job in the same day and tries to get her life back on track. The film's soundtrack features songs by several notable Australian bands including Spiderbait, Jebediah, The Living End and Grinspoon.[2]
