The Wolf of Wall Street is an in your face outrageous looney and often times vulgar ride. It the telling of the real life story of Jordan Belfort. In the 1990s, he founded the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont which functioned as a boiler room marketing penny stocks, where he defrauded investors with fraudulent stock sales All I could think is this is going to be a DVD collectors classic in the likes of Donnie Brasco instead you are watching “corporate gangsters.” Leonardo DiCaprio is utterly amazing as crooked New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. His physical comedy is hilarious. Matthew McConaughey role is brief but freakishly entertaining. Jonah Hill is also provides an impressive performance. The characters are great and the story keeps you guessing, “What is going to happen next?”
The Food: Guys, if you catch this in movie theaters then a more upscale restaurant may be in order. If this winds up being a movie night at home. Then have some fun with champagne and caviar.
