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.
Just like their characters in the film, Jonah Hill (Donnie Azoff) and Jake Hoffman (Steve Madden) also grew up together as childhood friends.
What I'm asking, you Swiss dick, is are you going to fuck me over?
Jean Jacques Saurel: I understand perfectly, you American shit,
Jean Jacques Saurel: Ça depend.
Jordan Belfort: Ça depend on what exactly?
Jean Jacques Saurel: Whether America plans to invade Switzerland in the upcoming months.
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.
The film opens with a Stratton Oakmont advertisement hosted by Jordan Belfort. The film title appears only at the ending.
