About the film:
Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). 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."

Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
Rated R for sequences of strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language throughout, and for some violence.

    Subject: your are incorrect

    to those of you who had posted, you do not even have a clue as to who was really running these places, and how many of them were even (silently) owned by the same group of few, for years before and after, belfort's stratton. to say the least, the man giving the meeting in the morning was not the real owner, to say no more than i can, after stratton closed, other offices remained, the select fews (silent owners) income's went pretty much unchanged. there was a reason belfort wouldnt testify, and a reason there a still offices and companies owned by some of these guys still in business today! right here, in south florida, by friends of mine. things are not always what they seem.

    Danny Porush was running the place and made Belfort look like a choir boy when it came to being a crook.

    dont bother with this film, its the story of a fast talking crook who owes millions that he swindled out of peolple, yet somehow continues to live large. what a waste of time!!!!!

    really are movies going to keep dumbing us down, read the book and its nothing new! make a movie about how global warming doesn't exist and the money making scheme behind it.....make a movie about the german ufo's in world war 2 and how much more we are advanced in technology than the majority of the population know. and maybe with all the money you spend making these movies, you can spend it investigating these issues, for the better of the human race...peace
