@Billsgirl:  I heard it was really good, it was nominated for an award already.  I did hear there are a lot of boobs in it though, which annoys me.

I know some people that liked it (and others who didn’t) but I don’t think any said it was anything different than what you described.  I think if I see if I will be fully expecting that.  Someone I know went with their in-laws to see it…kind of awkward!  But I don’t have any desire to go pay to see it, so I’ll probably just see it when it comes out on DVD.

 FH and I saw it, I loved it.  I thought it was hilarious.  Yes, a little offensive and not for everyone but I thought it was great.

Fiance and I saw it and loved it. I though DiCaprio was so good. 

I agree that many of the scenes were there for shock value but I think that was the point. His whole life at that time was so over the top and the movie demonstrated that perfectly.

@Billsgirl:  That’s the guy’s story though. Excess and shitty behavior.

Of course if you find a movie disturbing you’re automatically a prude clutching her pearls. Undecided

SPOILER ALERT:

Just these two scenes alone were enough to call it disturbing:

Jonah Hill eating a live goldfish 

Jonah Hill’s flaccid penis (really don’t care if it wasn’t real)

 

I personally didn’t like the movie because I felt like it constantly repeated itself over and over. Drugs, sex, drugs, illegal stuff…Sex, drugs, drugs, illegal stuff. The plot line wasn’t worth 3 hours of my attention. I felt like they dumbed down the actual stock fraud to incorporate more of Hill’s and Dicaprio’s incorrigible behavior (which was funny/crazy to watch for the first 2 hours). Which is why, alas…I found this bat-sh*t-crazy movie to be very underwhelming. I really think the actors themselves did a fantastic job!

@Billsgirl:  You should add a poll to this to see how many people agree with you.

I really enjoyed this movie!

My co worker said it was horrible and she saw people walk out of the movie, she also said there were children present and from what she described I wouldve been horrified to see kids there

@Billsgirl:  I seriously screamed out loud when he ate that goldfish. I can handle all of the nudity, soft core porn, pill popping, coke snorting, prostitute banging they throw my way…

but the second I saw that live gold fish … I was definitely disturbed. I get that it was for shock value, but holy sh*t. I guess I’m a softie?
