I saw this film and wonder if anyone else felt troubled afterward at the idea that Belfort is making a profit from it.

I know that people can't make money on their crimes, however this person seems good at getting around laws. I wonder if he profited from book or film.
rumor has it Jordan is getting a reality TV show
An interesting article on the movie from Salon.com (I don't think it has been posted)http://www.salon.com/2014/01/04/the_war_over_wolf_of_wall_street/
I thought this was a great movie. I can understand why some may not like it. Jordan Belfort is an ambitious and greedy man who manipulates the poor and desperate. I thought the film was very well done (DiCaprio and supporting class were excellent) and did not hold back on its portrayal of a narcissistic, immoral, and drug-addicted person. Addiction is highlighted here, causing more lapses in ethics and morality. I admit, I was in tears of laughter over the Lemmon 714 Quaaludes scene as well as horrified by his despicable character traits. However entertaining, I don't think the film intends to condone or glamorize Belfort's behavior. It's just a very well done movie depicting a piece of dirty reality, what people will do for money, and unfortunate for those who were scammed.

I think it is one of Scorsese's worst efforts. DiCaprio did do a stellar job ... did anyone actually like it?
what did you guys think of the movie? I haven't decided if I want to see this one yet.
Good movie but it was too long. Seems like a lot of movies are long these days , maybe they want to give people their money's worth.
I'm going to have to miss this one.

The talk of naked women has boosted the group from 7 to 13. :)

many naked women .... :-)
The more the merrier. :) Do the women get equal time with naked men? Probably not.
As long as your son is over forty, it should be ok.
Bringing my son to this one.
Should have been x-rated than rated R. Whew! Pretty raw, I say!

I just saw it, before you all posted it. It is all of three hours long and the theater in Morrisville showed a half hour of promos before it ... made it really long. Should I be posting reviews here? Let me know, I will refrain unless asked.
