A girl I went to high school with played one of the hookers in that movie…

Haven’t seen it and I’m not interested in doing so.

okay i haven’t seen it. i was intrigued, but then i wasn’t. mostly because it is 3 hours long and i keep hearing mixed reviews like this.

 

can someone compare it to the departed for me?

i loveeee the departed. and that was disturbing, but amazing.

@Billsgirl:  I clicked on this thread knowing it would be about The Wolf of Wall Street lol.

I saw it with my parents and Fiance – we all really liked it. But I get why people could be offended by it, or not like it.

@GoldfishPie: +1… I actually enjoyed it… can’t wrap my head around the fact that it was based on true events though.

 

OP, you must not have been reading or listening to any reviews of that movie before seeing it, because the reviews very clearly state that it is basically 3 hours of sex and drugs.

A male friend of mine at work warned us all about this movie. He said there was nothing redeeming about it except the acting, and he’s far from prudish.

I didn’t find it disturbing. Keep in mind that the movie was trying to portray what life on Wall Street was like back in 1980-1990s. My dad’s friends used to work on Wall Street and they said the movie was an accurate depiction of what happened back then. Drugs and prostitutes were everyday occurrences. The only disappointing thing about the movie is that it continues to glorify Wall Street brokers, even those who dealt illegal trades.

Fiance and I walked out around 2.5 hours. I’m not a conservative person, so it wasn’t exactly the content… it was the use of it. It was just totally pointless. It had no heart. Even the most vulgar of movies usually have some sort of purpose or story to tell, where this movie just used vulgarlity for vulgarity’s sake. Pretty lame. 

 

SPOILER

 

I also found the rape scene extremely upsetting. It was totally pointless. We already knew what a messed up dude this guy was… it seemed like someone threw that in there but didn’t truly understand the concept of marital rape.

@MrsTVLover:  I’ve read that Belford says he’s giving “half” his cut from the movie back to his victims he swindled. Seems pretty fair.

NOT.

@Ruby-Redshoes:  One R rated film doesn’t equal another R rated film. Believe me, I’m all for debauchery… in fact, I’m usually attracted to the more vulgar movies as I think they usually have a grittier, realistic feel. I’m down for whatever you can throw at me, as long as it’s got a point. This just felt like someone decided to throw every vulgar thing they could think of into a movie. I actually laughed for the first 2 hours… but by the end, the “plot” (or lack thereof) became stale, repetetive, and soulless. The movie just felt EMPTY.

@lina010:  OMG I loved american hustle.  The acting was amazing, story line was good, and the soundtrack HOLY COW best soundtrack I have heard in 10 years!  I literally added almost every sone on their sountrack to my wedding playlist.  They are the BEST Songs from the 70’s.  Oh and the clothes Amy Adams wore were to so hot!  Too much boob, but hot!

I enjoyed it and so did DH. Ya it’s vulgar, ya it’s filthy. So? Regular TV isn’t that much better.

@Billsgirl:  I felt that way after watching Green Hornet.

£21 for two adult tickets and 3D glasses for that pile of crap. I’m still mad about it.

 

 

I’ll probably wait for DVD for Wolf of Wall Street, but I tend to get on with Scorsese’s style, and I really like DiCaprio, so I could be pleasantly surprised. I’ve been getting acquainted with Tarantino recently, so I can’t expect it to be any worse than some of that!
