Towards the end of the film, Jordan puts his daughter in a late model R129 Mercedes SL500 to take her away from Naomi (either a 1999 or a 2000). Not only does this car not fit the time-frame of this film, but the way he engages the parking brake in reverse (with his right hand pulling upwards) is incorrect on this type of vehicle. The parking brake is located near the brake pedal and must be pressed down with your left foot.
The film opens with a Stratton Oakmont advertisement hosted by Jordan Belfort. The film title appears only at the ending.
