Storyline Heading
Having started a morally conventional career in the late 80s, New York stockbroker, Jordan Belfort quickly rose from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption. 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.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Comedy (Dark) - Viewers may be shocked at how darkly comedic and sometimes silly the latest teaming of director Martin Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio is--and also how very adults only it is, with non-stop sex, nudity, drug use in addition to language and some violence. The film is very inappropriate for children. Fans of Matthew McConaughey and Jon Favreau may be disappointed by their very small roles, for this is a showcase for DiCaprio and his largely unseen comedic skills.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Excellent The Wolf of Wall Street crackles with energy and justifies its length, offering three of the most riveting hours available this holiday season.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" is abashed and shameless, exciting and exhausting, disgusting and illuminating; it's one of the most entertaining films ever made about loathsome men. Its star Leonard DiCaprio has compared it to the story of the Roman emperor Caligula, and he's not far off the mark.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent An unexpectedly funny movie that is also wildly energetic. Di Caprio's role — and the movie as a whole — embodies the financial opportunism and cutthroat style of the era.

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average ...Martin Scorsese's big, bravura, maddeningly uneven indictment of the extreme financial depredations that characterized the 1990s... "The Wolf of Wall Street" remains one-note even at is most outré, an episodic portrait of rapaciousness in which decadence escalates into debauchery escalates into depravity — but, miraculously, not death.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 51 moviegoers:
I love movies like this because they clearly show how much better moviegoer reviews are compared to professional critic reviews. The critics absolutely loved "The Wolf of Wall Street," but moviegoer were clearly not so impressed.
TEENS: One male loved it, one rated it above average and one rated it average. The one females rated it above average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Seven of the ten males loved it and one enjoyed it very much. Of the remaining two, one rated it average and one hated it. Two females loved it, five rated it above average, two rated it average and one hated it.
ADULTS: Certainly not the greatest reviews from the adults. The males enjoyed it slightly more than the females (likely due to the strong sexual content). These are mediocre reviews, at best. They indicate most will enjoy "The Wolf of Wall Street," but few will love it. A large percentage will only feel it is an average movie.
