Trivia

Although this was originally announced as Martin Scorsese's first non-3D movie to be shot entirely digitally, it ended up being mostly shot on film. Shooting outside at night was done with digital cameras to minimize the need for extensive lighting. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, when Jordan Belfort reveals that on a daily basis he takes enough drugs to supply Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month, he says that he takes Adderall to stay focused. Adderall was not released until 1996, and was not released in a generic form to the market until 2002. Given that the film spans from 1987 to sometime in the 1990's, using "prescription Amphetamine pills to focus" would be much more factually accurate and understood than using "Adderall to focus" during the 1987-1990's time span of the film.

The funniest movie of 2013
25 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Wolf of Wall Street" is infectiously entertaining. It is probably the funniest movie I have seen all year with witty dialogue, over the top characters, and filled with energy that bleeds off the screen. Between all the fun however,  there is also a story about addiction and how it can cause a downward spiral in your life whether it be drugs, money, or power.

Acclaimed director Martin Scorsese does a wonderful job keeping this movie at a high at all times. Never once does this movie lose it's energy or sense of humor much like the drug induced characters. There are a lot of quick cuts and edits to keep the movie feeling as If you are on drugs as well as playing high energy music in some of the more serious situations.

The cast brings their "A" game. The stand out is obviously Leonardo DiCaprio, who pretty much owns and excels any scene he is in. This film really showcases his diverse range.

Overall "The Wolf of Wall Street" is a full on adrenaline ride that never loses momentum. It's directed with a lot of flair and energy and has an incredibly well written script that gives it depth and a ton of laughs. The cast is fantastic and DiCaprio gives his best and most fun filled performance to date. I really enjoyed this movie and think it's the funniest movie of the year 4.5/5
