Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late '80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title "The Wolf of Wall Street."

It's a shit show. Too bad DeCaprio wasted his talent on it. Don't bother, go pull weeds in your garden instead. You will feel better about yourself.

Here's a movie for Jerry Lewis fans (Scorsese showed his cred in "King of Comedy") and/or over-sexed male juveniles. Lot's of moronic manic scenes and very, very little understanding of how these stock traders tick.
Is Martin Scorsese Hollywood's most over-rated director? Sure seems like it. Even his "famous" ones (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) are hardly worth anyone's time of day. I suppose "Mean Streets" was his best movie and that was back in 1973. Since then, it has mostly been a downhill slide.

So sorry I didn't read more about this movie before checking out the DVD. Could not make it through the whole thing. Can't believe it had ratings as high as it does. Disgusting.

The debauchery in this movie is depressing. It does give insight into the world of Wall Street. Maybe investors will think twice after seeing this but it is not a movie I would recommend.

Great film about a stock broker building a film and becoming rich by scamming its customers in buying penny stocks. How he lived a billionaire life style doing drugs and hookers. True story and great music sound track.

A wildly entertaining movie that exposes the base greed and cruelty of America's financial elite. Certainly belongs in the "reality is stranger than fiction" pile.

This movie is about the infamous former stockbroker Jordan Belfort. It is all about his life and him working on the wall. Jordan started off as stockbroker at a wall street brokerage firm and as years pass by, he slowly starts to build his own firm. It begins to progress day by day and he gets many employees working for him and gains clients overseas as well. Just as things are in his favour, it all starts to slow down because he ends up getting charged for money laundering and fraud. I personally liked this movie because Leonardo DiCaprio did a wonderful job portraying this role. I rate this movie 4 out of 5. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Jordan Belfort: My name is Jordan Belfort. I'm a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week.

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.
