Scorsese and DiCaprio did a great job with this film! A very adult look into the excesses of wall street in the 80s.
Fantastic obscenity laced scrip, Great sound/music trac, Great characters with actors that understand what it means to be an actor. The cinematography was beautiful. Perfect supporting cast! The portrayal of the cult of greed and excess was incredible!!

No thumbs up icons or dancing clowns to indicate how good this film was but It's worth spending the money to see it on the big screen!

Saw it on Christmas day! Great movie!

It really got me thinking about the machine. DiCaprio's character had so much money, but was so stupid with it! He could have financed a war or a hospital, but no, all he cared about were drugs, women and toys! All that money and potential power, and all he accomplished was feeding the machine, oiling the very giant gears that ran him over.

Great acting on the part of all! Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey couldn't have been creepier! A home run for Martin Scorsese!

Nearly died laughing through the entire movie. Couple facts, most of it is truer than you'd imagine. The Benihana owner he was talking about that got him in doodoo with the Swiss, because he was being investigated is Hiroaki Aoki is Steve Aoki's dad,

and there's a news article here about it.

Also, Steve Madden did jail time over the incident, was forced out of CEO and Board positions so he was employed as a creative consultant after, including during his time in jail @ 700k/year. The company in the film actually launched the IPO and it's a $30 stock now.

Very funny.

And also a look at how asinine a scheme like that can be and still have a major brand emerge from the dust.
