Trivia

Martin Scorsese claimed that the sequence of Jordan attempting to get in his car while extremely impaired on Lemmons was improvised on the day of filming, and that it was Leonardo DiCaprio's idea to open the car door with his foot. DiCaprio strained his back during the scene, and was only able to perform the stunt once.


Quotes

Jordan Belfort: I'm not ashamed to admit it. When we arrived to prison, I was absolutely terrified. But I needn't have been. See, for a brief fleeting moment, I'd forgotten I was rich and I lived in a place where everything was for sale. Wouldn't you like to learn ...


Goofs

Jordan says that the US Criminal Code for bribery requires a dollar amount to be a criminal act. This is incorrect. The code states that "anything of value" must be offered as a bribe to a government official to be constituted as a bribe.


Crazy Credits

The film opens with a Stratton Oakmont advertisement hosted by Jordan Belfort. The film title appears only at the ending.


Alternate Versions

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."
