Did the hooker verify that he blew coke down her asshole?

I was not a fan. 5/10. Very dumbed down movie, while not terrible, offered nothing redeeming at all. The sex, drugs and language (506 F-bombs from DiCaprio alone) went too far. More detail, please. The lack of backstory on how he built the company is a shame. The objectification of women, while rampant in society, actually made me uncomfortable as a man. Sitting there wondering how the old lady behind me is stereotyping all the man-imals around her. Too much of the bad, not enough of the good. I get it was real, but the film should have provided something redeeming about DiCaprio's character, perhaps simply how hard he worked to get there. Drinking Martinis all day on first day of job doesn't quite do it. The movie "Boiler Room" is similar and far superior.

I think it followed the book as Jordan Belfort wrote it, which also focused on the debauchery, not building the business.

I thought Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill were hilarious.

I thought it made for a great, entertaining movie.

Ok then maybe my problem is it should never have been a movie to begin with. Certainly not a 3-hour one.

I thought it was great. I went in with huge expectations because of everything I'd heard and I still loved it. It was a little long, but I didn't feel like they really forced anything to make it longer. Dicaprio was awesome in it.
