QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A 1990s era stock broker builds his investment firm to wild success, but must contend with his own decadence, raging ego, and a federal agent who's determined to bring him down.
PLOT:
It's the 1980s and Jordan Belfort (LEONARD DiCAPRIO) is a Wall Street broker who's learned a thing or two about trading as well as the perks of the business from his boss and mentor, Mark Hanna (MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY). But then the market crashes, Hanna's firm closes shop, and Jordan finds himself unemployed and needing to support himself and his wife, Teresa (CRISTIN MILIOTI).

He finds that chance selling penny stocks for a small investment house and quickly uses his previously honed skills to build up his success. Along with his new and eager-to-be-rich associate, Donnie Azoff (JONAH HILL), he then starts his own firm, Stratton Oakmont, and proceeds to hire a bunch of drug pushers, such as Brad (JON BERNTHAL), as his new sales staff.

It's not long before he's wildly successful, parlaying their success of selling to small time investors over into going after the rich and conning them into buying what are otherwise nearly worthless penny stocks that will never amount to anything. With his success going to his head, and becoming a drug addict alongside Donnie, Jordan dumps Teresa for the younger Naomi Lapaglia (MARGOT ROBBIE), and even hires his own father, Max (ROB REINER), to come work at his ever-growing firm known for its unorthodox style and extravagant parties.

That success eventually draws the attention of the feds, with Agent Denham (KYLE CHANDLER) beginning his investigation of Jordan and his firm. But fueled by his wealth, the drugs he takes and a raging ego, Jordan believes he's above the law. From that point on, it's a question of whether he'll be able to stay one step ahead of the feds, including by getting creative with his wealth.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Leo will certainly draw some, while the very adult material might be enticing to other teens. Preteens will likely have little to no interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sequences of strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and language throughout, and for some violence.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
Aside from KYLE CHANDLER playing the FBI agent (who uses strong profanity) wanting to bring down Jordan and CRISTIN MILIOTI playing Jordan's first wife (who uses strong profanity), none of the other characters are good role models due to the criminal behavior, drug use, casual sex, strong profanity and more that nearly everyone engages in.
CAST, CREW, & TECHNICAL INFO

HOW OTHERS RATED THIS MOVIE


Curious if this title is entertaining, any good, and/or has any artistic merit?
Then read OUR TAKE of this film.


(Note: The "Our Take" review of this title examines the film's artistic merits and does not take into account any of the possibly objectionable material listed below).


OUR WORD TO PARENTS:
The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated dramedy. Profanity consists of at least 506 "f" words, while plenty of other expletives and colorful phrases are also uttered. Sexually explicit dialogue is present, as are two orgy scenes (one straight, one gay), other sexual encounters (intercourse and oral sex), and lots and lots and lots of nudity (many instances of female full frontal along with male rear nudity and a very brief and somewhat distant view of a man's erection as he masturbates in front of others).

Violence includes several hard punches, some domestic violence, other people whacking at/hitting others, and a plane exploding and crashing into the sea (seen from a distance). Moments of peril include a large yacht going through a bad storm at sea (with huge waves), some people dangling a man off the top of a building, and a man nearly choking to death while high on drugs. A flashback to a suicide scene shows a little blood while some blood splatters when a person is hit, prompting another person to vomit. Some crude comments are made and a man urinates on a subpoena.

There's lots of drug use, while drinking and smoking also occur. Bad attitudes (including criminal behavior) are present, as are many instances of potentially imitative behavior and lots of tense family material.

If you're still concerned about the film and its appropriateness for yourself or anyone else in your home who may be interested in seeing it, we suggest that you take a closer look at our detailed listings for more specific information regarding the film's content.

For those concerned with bright flashes of light on the screen, there's a strobe effect in a strip club.

For those prone to visually induced motion sickness, there's camera movement at various points in the film.



ALCOHOL OR DRUG USE
  • We see Jordan suck what's presumably drugs from the crack of a woman's bare butt (that's up in the air facing him). He then smacks that woman's bare butt.
  • Jordan mentions that he drinks too much and we then see him doing a hard helicopter landing while drunk and/or high. He also mentions he takes enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island and Queens for a month. He then lists the various drugs he takes (a lot), including pot, cocaine and morphine, adding that the last one is awesome.
  • Jordan snorts cocaine.
  • In a flashback, Mark snorts cocaine inside a fine restaurant. He then talks about cocaine and hookers, and orders martinis for himself and Jordan, and tells the waiter to bring two more and keep doing that until "one of us passes the f*ck out." He also tells Jordan that the second secret to success (after masturbation) is cocaine.
  • Jordan drinks and does coke in a strip club.
  • We see a sign for a liquor store next to a small investment firm where Jordan gets a job.

  • There's cocaine use at the office.

  • Jordan and Naomi have wine in a restaurant.
  • We see Jordan snort coke off the top of Naomi's breasts (the top of them, while clothed), and then he does so again.
  • Jordan and Naomi have wine.
  • When their butler comments on things having gotten out of control in a party that turned into a gay orgy, Jordan says he understands the out of control part, saying "we do blow all the time."

  • Jordan talks to Naomi's aunt about the drugs (cocaine, pills, etc.) he'll use.
  • Donnie appears to be high when driving to meet and deliver money to Brad, who's upset about that, both when he thinks it's real as well as after the fact (when Donnie reveals he's faking that) as he says such behavior could have drawn the attention of the police.
  • Donnie gets Jordan some legendarily powerful Quaaludes and the two take them, but feel nothing. They then take more and more, not realizing there's going to be a delayed effect. Later, when too many Quaaludes kick in and Jordan loses most control of his body, he refers to that as the cerebral palsy stage. He then desperately tries to get back to his car (unable to walk, needing to roll down some steps and pull himself into his car that he then drives). Back home, he finds Donnie also quite high, and when Donnie ends up choking and Jordan is in no state to save him, Jordan then ingests a great deal of cocaine that negates the Quaaludes and allows him to act.
  • We see a small dust cloud of cocaine as some is thrown onboard a yacht.
  • Donnie and Jordan use cocaine and have Bloody Marys, with Jordan telling their server they'll need refills every 15 minutes.

  • Naomi and others have wine after being rescued at sea.

  • Jordan comments on his new sales team and their past experience at selling weed, while Brad was the Quaalude king.
  • A comment is made about being able to sell Quaaludes to a convent and getting the nuns "horny." One person then comments that all nuns are lesbians.
  • A person uses the term "Chinaman" (not about anyone in their presence).
  • While closing a client on the phone, Jordan mouths "f*ck you" to him and gives him "the finger" with both hands (indicating his disdain for him as well as taking advantage of him regarding getting the person to buy penny stocks that likely won't make any money). He also makes a gesture about his (unseen) penis and then does a pelvic thrust (all for the same reason).
  • In discussing what they can and can't ask hired small people to do at their wild party, it's mentioned that they're built to be thrown (regarding them later throwing them onto a Velcro board).
  • Jordan cheats on Teresa by fooling around with Naomi.
  • We hear that Jordan and Naomi's butler and/or his friends stole money and property from them during a party that turned into a gay orgy. Jordan, Donnie and others then interrogate the butler, with the term "fag" and "faggot" being thrown about.

  • Jordan wants to bug Agent Denham, but his advisor advises against messing with the feds.
  • Jordan has Agent Denham and another agent join him on an impressive yacht. He's got a spread of food, some women in bikinis, and not-so-directly tries to bribe Denham who seems to be taking the bait, but then lets on that it was just an act. As the agents leave, Jordan tauntingly throws cash bills into the air to flaunt his wealth.
  • Jordan is high on a plane, states that he's "horny," and tries humping a flight attendant from behind (both clothed). Donnie later informs Jordan that the reason he's now tied to his airplane seat is that he called the captain "the N word."
  • Donnie says he's smuggled Quaaludes up his "ass" on a plane to another country.
  • When asked what he'd do with an American subpoena if one was issued in Switzerland, a French banker says, "We'd wipe our ass with it."

  • We hear that Brad and others smuggled $20 million dollars out of America into Switzerland.
  • Donnie looks down on Brad.
  • Donnie and Brad get into an argument, with Donnie telling Brad he can shove something right up "your wife's Slovenian c*nt."

  • A comment is made about one of the toupee-wearing employees being a "wig-wearing faggot."
  • Naomi gives "the finger" to Donnie.
  • After having sex, Naomi informs Jordan that's the last time they'll ever have sex as she wants a divorce and is taking the kids. That turns into yelling ("F*ck you, you f*cking bitch!" and "C*nt!"), followed by her slapping him and him then slapping her hard. He then tears open a sofa cushion to retrieve hidden cocaine that he snorts, followed by him punching her in the gut and then taking their daughter from bed out to the car. Naomi hits the side of the car with something, shattering the driver's side window, while he backs through the partially closed garage door (breaking it) and runs into a wall in reverse. Naomi then retrieves their daughter from the car.
  • Jordan wears a wire for the FBI to nab others, but he silently gives Donnie a note indicating he's wearing a wire.
  • FRIGHTENING SCENES
  • Jordan and Donnie struggle over a phone and its stretchy cord while quite high. Moments later, Donnie ends up choking on something and falls down through a glass table that shatters beneath him. He then continues to choke, with Jordan needing to ingest a lot of cocaine to negate the effects of the Quaaludes and allow him to save Donnie.
  • Jordan, Donnie, Naomi and others (including the crew) ride out a huge storm at sea at night in their big yacht. The swells are huge, and water is already inside the cabin below deck as we see Donnie wading through that. A massive wave then crashes through the bridge windows. We later see all of them being rescued from the overturned yacht. During that, Jordan watches an approaching jet suddenly explode in mid-air and crash into the sea (from sucking a bird into the engine).
  • After having sex, Naomi informs Jordan that's the last time they'll ever have sex as she wants a divorce and is taking the kids. That turns into yelling ("F*ck you, you f*cking bitch!" and "C*nt!"), followed by her slapping him and him then slapping her hard. He then tears open a sofa cushion to retrieve hidden cocaine that he snorts, followed by him punching her in the gut and then taking their daughter from bed out to the car.

We then see a very high Donnie masturbating at that party in front of everyone, and there's a brief view of his erect penis (before a woman starts hitting him to make him stop).
  • We hear that Naomi is a lingerie designer and Jordan stares at her garters on her thighs in his car. We then hear him wonder "How do I f*ck this girl?" followed by her later walking out in a bedroom fully nude (full frontal view). They have sex (we only see their legs, but there's movement and sounds), with him saying, "I f*cked her G*ddamn brains out...for eleven seconds." She asks if he came, he says yes and asks the same of her. She says no and so he starts playing with himself to get another erection (not seen, but we do see them lying on their backs while talking, both shirtless). He then climbs on top of her for more sex, and we later hear him comment, "Her p*ssy was like heroin."
  • We see Jordan snort coke off the top of Naomi's breasts (the top of them, while clothed), and then he does so again. Teresa then discovers them in the limo, calls Naomi a "f*cking whore" and the F word is used sexually.
  • We see a flashback to Naomi unexpectedly walking in on her butler involved in a gay orgy inside their place (featuring oral sex, rear entry sex and such, but with camera angles to prevent that from being completely X-rated).
  • Not meant literally, the phrase "t*ts in a ringer" is used.
  • We see an orgy occurring on a plane, with people having sex in various positions (various instances of nudity, positions and movement, but with camera angles to prevent that from being completely X-rated), while one young woman's legs are spread, but we don't see her crotch.
  • After that, Jordan walks among those passed out in a hotel suite. We see his full rear nudity, as well as instances of full female nudity among those asleep/passed out.

  • We see Jordan shirtless in bed while Naomi is wearing some cleavage-revealing lingerie.

  • We see Jordan shirtless.
  • As a means of getting back at him for his wandering ways, Naomi informs Jordan that he can't touch her anymore, and that she'll be wearing short skirts, and with no panties. As she sits on the floor, she then spreads her legs, revealing her bare crotch to him (he sees it, we don't). He then crawls toward that, but she uses her foot to keep him at bay, all as she rubs her crotch in a masturbatory way. We then see that some guards are getting a clear view of that via a surveillance camera, a point that Jordan then brings to her attention. Later, Jordan mentions her choosing that day to give him "blue balls."
  • About an IPO and the man running the company, Jordan says they should be on their knees ready to "suck him off," all while making a related gesture with the microphone he's holding.
  • There's a comment made about "big voluptuous t*ts."
  • A person taunts Donnie, "Go f*ck your cousin."
  • Jordan has Agent Denham and another agent join him on an impressive yacht, complete with some women in bikinis. When the conversation turns sour, and Denham indicates he's going to bring Jordan down, Jordan says he can have one of those women lick caviar off his "balls."
  • We see a woman having sex on top of Jordan, facing away from him, with comments that he wanted to "f*ck" her, and others about his "c*ck" and "d*ck."
  • Jordan is high on a plane, states that he's "horny," and tries humping a flight attendant from behind (both clothed).
  • Jordan talks to Naomi's aunt and admits to being a drug addict and a sex addict too. She replies there are worse things to be addicted to than sex. He then wonders if she's hitting on him (he thinks but doesn't say that aloud), followed by her having the same thought the other direction, followed by him suddenly kissing her, but then stopping.
  • We see Jordan and Naomi having sex in the missionary position.
  • We see Brad shirtless while a woman in a bikini (or bra and panties) is being wrapped in wads of money for smuggling purposes.
  • Donnie and Brad get into an argument, with Donnie telling Brad he can shove something right up "your wife's Slovenian c*nt."
  • One man comments about an FBI agent being left standing around "with his d*ck in his hand."
  • We see many fully nude woman all over Brad on a yacht after he's released from jail.
  • We see some women in bikinis in a commercial.
  • Jordan comments about "f*cking Brad's wife" and we then see that woman walk out fully nude, followed by a view of them having sex under the sheets.
  • We see Jordan having sex on top of Naomi, with her saying she hates him during this. She then asks, "You wanna f*ck me?" and then tells him, "Go ahead and f*ck me, real hard." She tells him to "come for me" and thus he thrusts even more (we see the side of his bare butt, along with movement) until he orgasms. She then informs him that's the last time they'll ever have sex as she wants a divorce and is taking the kids.
  • SMOKING
  • Donnie smokes at least 10 times, Brad smokes at least 4 times, a French banker smokes once and a number of minor and miscellaneous characters smoke in several scenes.
  • TENSE FAMILY SCENES
  • Teresa is upset to open a limo door to discover Jordan cavorting with Naomi in the back seat, and she hits him while angry.
  • Eighteen months after getting married, things have gone rocky for Jordan and Naomi, with her throwing some water into his face to rouse him from sleep. After some arguing about him cheating on her, she throws more in his face.
  • As a means of getting back at him for his wandering ways, Naomi informs Jordan that he can't touch her anymore, and then proceeds to attempt to arouse him.
  • Naomi learns that her aunt has died, and she's then upset when Jordan wants to go somewhere else than London for the funeral (he's concerned about his money in her name being held elsewhere).
  • We see Jordan having sex on top of Naomi, with her saying she hates him during this. She then asks, "You wanna f*ck me?" and then tells him, "Go ahead and f*ck me, real hard." She tells him to "come for me" and thus he thrusts even more (we see the side of his bare butt, along with movement) until he orgasms. She then informs him that's the last time they'll ever have sex as she wants a divorce and is taking the kids.

That turns into yelling ("F*ck you, you f*cking bitch!" and "C*nt!"), followed by her slapping him and him then slapping her hard. He then tears open a sofa cushion to retrieve hidden cocaine that he snorts, followed by him punching her in the gut and then taking their daughter from bed out to the car. Naomi hits the side of the car with something, shattering the driver's side window, while he backs through the partially closed garage door (breaking it) and runs into a wall in reverse. Naomi then retrieves their daughter from the car.

  • IPOs.
  • VIOLENCE
  • We briefly see an arm hanging down from a bathtub in a partially seen suicide photo (with blood shown).

  • Teresa is upset to open a limo door to discover Jordan cavorting with Naomi in the back seat, and she hits him while angry.

  • Jordan and Donnie struggle over a phone and its stretchy cord while quite high. Moments later, Donnie ends up choking on something and falls down through a glass table that shatters beneath him. He then continues to choke, with Jordan needing to ingest a lot of cocaine to negate the effects of the Quaaludes and allow him to save Donnie.

The swells are huge, and water is already inside the cabin below deck as we see Donnie wading through that. A massive wave then crashes through the bridge windows. We later see all of them being rescued from the overturned yacht. During that, Jordan watches an approaching jet suddenly explode in mid-air and crash into the sea (from sucking a bird into the engine).

He then tears open a sofa cushion to retrieve hidden cocaine that he snorts, followed by him punching her in the gut and then taking their daughter from bed out to the car.
