This movie didn't really hold my interest, in fact, I eventually gave up watching and returned it to the library.

Well done, good production values, good acting job, and terminally depressing.

Have seen this several times. DiCaprio is excellent. No real shock how Wall Street lived high on the hog while bankrupting us. The level of personal excesses is staggering. They should all be in prison.

Entertaining and engaging if you don't mind rooting for entirely evil criminal reprobates who prey on the weak and unapologetically engage in nearly every debauchery known to mankind every day of their disgusting lives. Very good acting too!

I will admit that the wolf of wall street is all over the place,this is a well made well acted movie.For adults only but it is great

Hard times in the land of plenty. People will do anything to survive and when they find the hole in the system, they exploit it. Amazing that this is based on a real story.

They say that this is really a comedy,but i don't remember laughing at all period.Maybe i didn't laugh at all because i know the TRUTH about Wall Street in real life,watching this from a hardcore political perspective.However,the performances in this film are so good (especially from Leonardo DiCaprio),the film really convinces me that this is some of the real life reasons or excuses of how and why our selected,not elected politicians in real life are bought and paid for period.This film is an explicit example of how our selected,not elected Congress,local politicians,and so-called Presidents in the USA really get down in real life.This is literally our tax $'s at work in real life politically period,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great movie it was the Boiler Room from the big shots point of view.Perfect example of how I would've blew thru that kind of money from the party lifestyle,hot wife,big boat,helicopter,house and cars.The prison time is worth it.

If you like movies about the stuff and the excess that goes on in the financial sector, watch the original Wall Street with Michael Douglas, Charlie Sheen, Daryl Hannah and Martin Sheen. Better than this.

First adult only lots of swearing and nudity graphic. I would compare to scarface. It was funny at times and well worth a watch a big surprise to me at how well it all worked.

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."
