Terrible movie. Should have an R rating & be listed in the pornography section.

A satirical nasty look at corporate greed and backstabbing in the stockbroking game. About time we exposed this farce that is the Stock Market---nothing more than a giant pyramid scheme. The movie is totally over-the top and over-animated, but I think it works well as a statement against corruption in our so called 'free market' society------The movie would have been better served by being about 25 minutes shorter-----

I did not enjoy the movie. Found it offensive. Difficult to believe this movie is based on a true character. Sleezy guy.

Little to do with the actual workings of Wall Street. I found this to be an offensive and nasty movie the young should not see. I fasted forwarded it wanting to see the end. I just knew death was coming because of the evil content . Is DiCaprio so hard up. The actors should list this as some of their worse work.

Not a good use of time or mind.

The conflict doesn't come in to play until the 1 hour mark in the movie when Jordan learns he's being watched by the FBI. Too much time spent on the set up (i.e., naked women, drug taking, sex). I, actually, feel asleep and finished watching the next day. The rest of the movie is okaaaay. FYI: At the end of the movie, the real Jordan Balfort, makes an entrance, introducing the DiCaprio Jordan Balfort at a how-to-sucker-people seminar in New Zealand.

Don't let your kids watch it. Maybe funny for some adults but using the F-word a million times doesn't make me like a movie.

Intense content but maybe because of that, the movie turns out to be WAYY TOO INTENSE therefore it just gets dragging-on at the end. Leonardo tried too hard yet his acting failed to leave me an impression - so sad to say.

One of the worst movies in terms of content! Many well-known actors in it. They probably wish we will forget them in this one! Total waste of time! Do yourself a favor and skip this one!

Debauchary never looked so fun. However, this thing was waaaaay toooo long. It is basically a rehash of (Charlie Sheen's) "Wall Street".

Sexual Content: I couldn't count how many acts of sex occur in this film. It's a lot.

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.

"Most of the Wall Street jackasses I bust are douchebags, just like their fathers before them. But you ... you, Jordan, got this way all on your own."

"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."
