Did You Know?

Trivia

Martin Scorsese has confirmed that some of the editing is odd on purpose, especially the scenes in which one or more characters are high. Every time Jordan is seen taking drugs, the scenes that follow have continuity issues and often flow oddly. See more »

Goofs

When Jordan is having a flashback to driving his Lamborghini out of the country club while high on Lemmons, we see him yank the steering wheel to the left; but in the following shot, the car moves forward and turns to the right. However, this is not a goof since Martin Scorsese has confirmed that where Jordan has taken drugs the editing becomes odd on purpose, with continuity issues to make events flow oddly. See more »

Quotes

Jordan Belfort: Gentlemen, welcome to Stratton Oakmont. You snooks will now be targeting the wealthiest 1% of Americans. We're talking about whales here, Moby fucking Dicks. And with this script, which is your new harpoon, I'm gonna teach each and every one of you to be Captian fucking Ahab.

Alternate Versions

News reports in local media have said the version of Wolf of Wall Street (2013) 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 500+ 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."
