I turned this movie off after the first 5 minutes. The swearing was way too much. Just as well after reading other people's comments about the film. Most are negative.

I have read one of his books and also have seen him interviewed on TV. The movie does take liberties with the accounts of his "escapades" as he relates them in his books, however, it's close enough. I must say, the language and sex are obnoxious and I'm not sure so much of it was really necessary to the film. I gave the film 4 stars because the scene of him after ODing on Qualudes is worth the whole movie! I don't know if it was Leonardo DiCaprio that did this scene or a stunt person, but it was WONDERFUL and I was laughing out loud! That said, don't let the end fool you-this guy has no remorse. I saw him interviewed just recently and he wants you to believe that 95% of what they did was legal (His estimate) and that they really didn't hurt anyone because the people they targeted were pretty rich anyway. These kind of people need to go away.

To say this movie was bad. It’s an understatement. It’s a train wreck. Don’t waste your time, but if you must watch it go for it and see if you agree with the rest of us!

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way. "Very predictable"

Debauchery is the least I say about the movie. Waste of time and disgusting.

I don't recommend it.

This movie was terrible...the script was so juvenile, acting and directing were mediocre. Story line was greed, drugs, sex repeated over and over for 3 hours...10 minutes would have been enough time for this 1 star movie...I can't believe Leonardo DiCaprio would be part of such a degrading movie......Want to see a movie with excellent acting and directing....watch True Grit with Jeff Bridges...a Coen brothers movie....

Poor, not because of the sex or drugs but because it felt like an extended version of Boiler Room or Glengarry Glenross with long scenes of improvisation that end up being very boring. It's unfortunate because DiCaprio did a great job in the role and so did Jonah Hill. It should have been edited down from the 3 hour long running time to give them a bit more of an Oscar chance.

Violence: There are a few scenes that may be considered violent, but I don't think that's the main issue in this film (see sexuality, coarse language, drug use).

Coarse Language: It holds the Guinness World Record for the most utterances of the F-bomb in cinematic history at 506 (averaging over 2 per minute). It's your call.

Mark Hanna: The name of the game, moving the money from the client's pocket to your pocket.

Jordan Belfort: But if you can make your clients money at the same time it's advantageous to everyone, correct?

Mark Hanna: No.

"I'm a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside Queens. The year I turned 16 as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made 49 million dollars, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week."
