    Bonnie and I saw "Wolf of Wall Street" today at the cheap matinee. We enjoyed most of it but I must warn you.............This is a three hour flick! Watching this movie will test the endurance of your butt and bladder! Be sure to sit in a place where you can get out to visit the washroom!

    Another warning.......don't bring anyone with you who may be offended by hundreds of "F" bombs and lots of nudity (above and BELOW the waist) with massive amounts of sexual intercourse throughout the flick. Trust me, this is a serious warning! Long ago, I saw many of the 60's and 70's porn flicks and this movie tops all of them in sexual content.

    The movie shows a young, beginning stock broker as he enters the business and traces his evolution into a drunken, drugged out sexual degenerate who lies, cheats and screws over everyone he meets. He makes fortunes by transferring money from his customers to his own pocket.

    Story line: rags to riches to rags to ....? The movie story was told as narrated by the main character like in the movie "Good Fellas".

    This movie was very difficult for me to watch as I lived the sex and drug part of the plot for many years. Somehow, the money eluded me but it was difficult to see the "smile in your face" then "stab you in the back" methods these brokers used. They had no soul as they sold that long ago.

    Their money was transported in satchels of $100 bills and it was almost impossible to spend it all. They could not spend it fast enough......can you imagine that? Well, here it is all for you to see.

    The sexual part of this flick was very disturbing. They'd get so stoned that it became a pile of naked, drug crazed horny bodies when they partied. Most were married but that made absolutely no difference to these guys.

    Day after day, week after week, the shoveled drugs into their bodies, bought hookers and all manner of gold diggers. If that sounds like fun, the movie begins to remove that illusion. It's ugly, gritty and meaningless.

    The sex...............I expected some of that but once that story is told, it's time to move on. The flick kept coming back to that theme over & over. Just to keep things fair to the gay community, when the family returned early from a vacation, they walked into an orgy their gay butler was throwing in their home. I didn't need that crap!

    Observations:
    Sex...too much. Some is OK but when it comes in copious quantities, I know that I'm being pimped. They simply want to display eye candy.

    Business........This movie displayed ALL of the negative traits that have destroyed American business! I hated to see that and it made me very uncomfortable. They are screwing people just like you and me and getting filthy rich doing it!

    Relationships........Simply put: With friends like this, who needs enemies?

    The stars spirit...........................The star had the same kind of spirit that I've always had. As long as my heart is beating, I'm not whipped. Better kill me now, because I WILL be back! I loved that part of the flick! This guy was as crooked and as low life as they come but he wouldn't quit. He was like the "Terminator" of business. His iron will overcame all obstacles! I related to that and liked to see it.

    Bonnie rated this movie a "C". I gave it a "B" as I could relate to parts of it. If you want to spend your money to see lots of T&A, you may give it an "A".

    I'll add an addendum to the "Wolf of Wall Street" review.

    I mentioned that the movie had lots of sexual intercourse on screen. There were large group shots, scenes in bathrooms, in beds, bent over desks and lots more. The bodies were naked and positioned properly, and humping was frenzied. If they were screwing, I don't know but it sure looked like it.

    In one scene, a totally stoned partier was walking through a sea of naked and passed out orgy participants, he sees a hooter that he likes, grabs hold, gives it a few twists then proceeds on his drunken/stoned path. This flick is full of that!

    I wish I had a Dollar for every hooter and butt they displayed and several times, the "Cat" made an appearance.

    I WARN you.............this movie exceeds ANY "R" rated theater flick that I've seen since the 1960's. If you take your lady to this flick without preparing her for this, she may be ticked off.

    Crude language and "F" bombs exceeded the Melissa McCarthy/Sandra Bullock flick by a wide margin.

    Guaranteed, you will not see this movie on late night TV.

    as always thanks for the review Roger.. my wife is quite a fan of L DeC (nope not going.to even try to spell it).. BUT she's not a fan of gratuatus sex either, so the points are appreciated..

    As a guy i'd be lying if I said the female form didn't bring the glasses out of the pocket... but as a Christian the gratuatus part bugs me.. if it's part of the plot, then like most guys.. great.. but if it's only for shock, and prurient interest.. we all know if something is wrong or not, and to that point if "YOU" don't feel it's wrong then your not being sent messages.. enjoy.. odd how as you age, your perspectives change.. thanks again for the review Roger..

    I might be persuaded to see it if Leonardo DeCrapio had one bit of acting talent, but unfortunately he doesn't. Why Martin Scorcese keeps using him in his movies, I don't know. Now that I think of it, I really didn't care for any of Scorcese's films.

    I'm not a prude and to tell the truth, except for the Homosexual scenes, didn't see much that I haven't done myself. What gripes me is that they are telling a story. When they overkill a point and throw lots of extra shock footage into the mix, it no longer tells the story. At that point, it's all about shocking, filling the screen with flash and bang (pun intended) and not story telling. That applies to sex and violence both.

    With the extreme excess in their lives, then a tragic fall following, this could have been a great flick. What looks outwardly as an exciting life filled with sex, partying, drugs, booze and tons of money, every one of the participants had their lives turn to pure sxit. That lesson tie in could have made this a great movie but they missed the boat!

    It made the F Bomb record of any non documentary movie with 506 times passing up Spike Lee’s 1999 thriller Summer of Sam, which previously held the record with 435 uses.

    For me any movie that relies that heavily on sex and language to get attention isn't my cup of tea.
