I actually totally disagree. I thought this was an excellently done movie. Yes it was overly vulgar and there was way too much sex and nudity, but I still think the acting was really good and the movie was well done. I enjoyed it 100x more than American Hustle. I also think that Leonardo DiCaprio fully deserved his best actor award for this movie.

Interesting, this is the 2nd thread like this and it’s not that often that I notice recommendations not to see a movie on WB!

I actually really liked the movie.  It was over the top and hilarious IMO

I think the actors did an absolutely fantastic job. Jonah Hill and that goldfish, holy crap. I think they all deserve awards for their acting.  

What I didn’t like about the movie was how repetitive it was. I felt like they dumbed the movie down to drugs and sex when I really wanted to see more of the actual Wall Street scandal. I just didn’t feel like there was a lot of plot. So eventually, the hookers and blow was just boring… 3 hours of boring. 

By the end when he had completely unraveled I was just over it. Honestly, one of my least favorite movies I’ve ever watched.

@BurlapnLace:  I want to see this movie so bad! I have heard it is quite vulgar but that stuff doesnt botherme so much. I’m not paying to see it (thank you internet) so if it;s crap I wont feel so bad that I wasted money to see it. I love Leo he is a great actor

@BurlapnLace:  Because of your review and another WB poster’s review, I almost HAVE to see this movie now. It sounds way too vulgar to miss out on, even if it does suck.

I’ve heard so many mixed reviews on this movie. I do like Leonardo DiCaprio and I’m not a prude, but I don’t know that I’d care to spend 2.5 hours watching drugs and sex for only 30ish minutes of substance (at least thats what it sounds like it would be based off of what I’ve heard).

I’ll probably see it eventually. I know one of the girls who played a majorette/baton twirler, and I think it would be cool to see someone I know in a movie. It’s a pretty minor role, but it’s still neat!

@megz06:  It is REALLY vulgar. Honestly though, I’ve seen worse. There are some really shocking and funny scenes though. Personally for me, it wasn’t worth the three hours, but for some hey go ahead!

Plus, You may or may not see Jonah Hill’s flaccid penis.

@BurlapnLace:  So….I started the same thread a few weeks back and I basically was ridiculed by some as being a “prude” among other things. It opened a whole can of ugly worms so don’t be surprised if you get flamed. I simply was trying to voice my opinion, as you are and for some reason things just got out of hand to where a few sweet bees had to come to my defense and stick up for me.  I had to close the thread, and one bee even went so far as to continue to harass me via email on here…WTF….

@lolita39:  Lol I heard that bit (and I am a Jonah Hill fan but not THAT big of a fan). I just want to see it out of sheer curiosity now. I will probably end up renting it though. No way would I spend that much money to go to it in theaters.
