Too obscene. I didn't watch it to the end. Not worth the time

About an hour too long, but entertaining to watch. I found the soundtrack to be oddly distracting and it made the timeline very confusing - I never knew how much time was passing, and assumed the soundtrack was cluing me into what decade/period it was, but it was always off! Made it really disjointed. A few of the jokes were a little cruder than I think was necessary - not that I have any problem with crude jokes, just that they detracted from the film. Overall a OK movie, great performance from DiCaprio as always, but not spectacular in any way.

A terrifying look at the excesses of the financial deregulation of the 1990s and the resulting greed and corruption.

Leo plays the role of villain very well.

Worse than awful.

Sex, Drugs and money... Not much of a story line really...

Great acting but definitely not child appropriate!

this is nothing but a disgusting litany of the depravity of greedy people who have power but don't deserve it. I could have stopped reading it from the beginning and saved my time. This book has one purpose: to make money for its author. I am so fed up with four=letter words and the vermin that use them, that I'm glad I don't have too much time left on this earth. I did not see the movie and am quite sure I missed nothing. It's too bad, nay, criminal, that the talents of Leonardo di Caprio were wasted on this filth.

funny, I like but don"t like this film.
on one hand the acting is great, on
the other the film doesn't say anything.
It all sex, drugs and piles of cash.

Martin Scorsese has yet succeeded and failed on doing The Wolf of Wall Street. The reason why is because it stars Leonardo DiCaprio from many of his films, and this film has taken off too much, for many reasons. A touch too long, yet never slack, at three hours, TWOWS benefits from independent funding, Scorsese’s brass balls and an A-grade cast’s turbulent improvisations to emerge as an epic, boldly broad screwball comedy about the state of America, then and now. The Wolf of Wall Street is a big, unruly bacchanal of a movie that huffs and puffs and nearly blows its own house down, but holds together by sheer virtue of its furious filmmaking energy and a Leonardo DiCaprio star turn so electric it could wake the dead. I really don't know what to think about this movie: it has incredible actors that deliver flawless performances, but it made me feel very disgusted with myself. The reason why is because there was so much inappropriate scenes that Martin Scorsese has added, mostly with nudity. Don't get me wrong though, the women are gorgeous and you would probably do the same as Leonardo's character if you were in his position. There's also A LOT of drugs. This film is not meant for children, so do not bring your kids under any circumstances, so I recommend this film to teens ages 13 and up. The question you ask yourself while walking out is was all this extreme content really necessary to illustrate the simple theme of how greed and corruption destroy people? This movie was definitely engineered in order to shock and trust me it succeeded, but left me very startled. Therefore, this is why I dislike this film, so I gave it a 2.5 out of 5, since I’m 14.

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

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."
