In the early 1990s, Jordan Belfort teamed with his partner Donny Azoff and started brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont. Their company quickly grows from a staff of 20 to a staff of more than 250 and their status in the trading community and Wall Street grows exponentially. So much that companies file their initial public offerings through them. As their status grows, so do the amount of substances they abuse, and so do their lies. They draw attention like no other, throwing lavish parties for their staff when they hit the jackpot on high trades. That ultimately leads to Belfort featured on the cover of Forbes Magazine, being called "The Wolf Of Wall St.". With the FBI onto Belfort's trading schemes, he devises new ways to cover his tracks and watch his fortune grow. Belfort ultimately comes up with a scheme to stash their cash in a European bank. But with the FBI watching him like a hawk, how long will Belfort and Azoff be able to maintain their elaborate wealth and luxurious lifestyles?Written by
When Jordan is leaving the country club and crawls to the steps, the number of steps changes (dramatically increases) when viewed from Jordan's perspective and also when he rolls down them. This isn't a continuity error. Because Jordan was high on drugs his perspective of reality was affected, so to him there were more steps to navigate. Just as he later claimed to have driven home without scratching the car, when he had actually trashed it. His perspective of reality was affected by the drugs. See more »

News reports in local media have said the version of the movie showing in Abu Dhabi cinemas removes 45 minutes of content. Aside from nudity and sexual situations, most of the edits come from the film's 600+ curse words. Time Out Abu Dhabi reported offensive language was removed by "either by muting the audio temporarily or chopping chunks from scenes mid sentence, which produces a jarring effect for viewers."

Though everyone is talking about Leonardo and which is really appreciable but foremost jonah hill also did justice to his character
Like every other characters it is a home work based perfomance done by Leo which is remarkable and the ending is really fascinating
I dont want to give the spoiler
From 0 to 0 and again restarts always need courage.
