R | | Biography, Comedy, Crime
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stock-broker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
Martin Scorsese said that there were actual real-life stockbrokers on the set, some of whom actually worked at the real Stratton-Oakmont firm.
That conniving twat! Look at this! The wolf of Wall Street they call me! Look!
Teresa Petrillo: There is no such thing as bad publicity. Your hair looks good.
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.
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."
