    There should be a cut version of WotWS because they didn't want to get Rated R or something. I think it was about half an hour of material.

    It was great. But not as great as it could have been.

    The movie started to drag for me at about 2.5 hrs.

    The scene of Jordan (Leo) dealing with the Lemmons kicking in is one of the best examples of physical comedy I have ever seen.

    The performances were great. This was maybe Leo's best performance to date.

    I feel it would have been a better film if it had included more of Jordan's pre and post wall street life to give it context.

    Even for me sex, drugs, and parties get old after a while. Although given Scorsese's battles with addiction I can understand why he focuses on that aspect of it to the extent that he does.

    It was alright. Definitely should have been shorter, and didn't feel original to me. It just seemed like elements of a bunch of movies I've already seen thrown together trying to produce as much shock value as possible. But it was still pretty entertaining. Leo was good. Actually Jonah Hill might have been the funniest part.

    Just watched it. Wow, very entertaining. Quite like the story narrated in the book, and I've never seen a movie that explicit in mainstream cinema.

    Perhaps that's a new trend? Nymphomaniac seems to have a similar level of obscenity, but I don't know much to tell. I must say I enjoy it.

    I feel like some parts were dumbed down... The Swiss guy who's an expert in banking system was far more brilliant (in a criminous way) in the book, and the way he explained the concept of plausible deniability and how it applied to what Belfort wanted was very cunning. There were a lot of interesting details involving stock options after the Steve Madden IPO... In the movie it was just like 'we made 20+ millions in 3 hours', but I feel like the details would've made things much more interesting to someone with intermediate or superior knowledge on markets.

    A scene that was probably cut on purpose involved one of Belfort's associates making an anti-gay speech in Stratton Oakmont, which initiated the equivalent of a witch hunt. That was probably for the best.

    Did the part where he rapes his wife bother anyone else? I thought it was entertaining and well-made but
    somewhat exploitative. Overall, I thought if was a middling film for Scorcese, when he was always hit-or-miss
    before.

    Another movie I'd recommend that is similar to this one is Pain & Gain. Also a very funny movie.
