Okay, so I’m late to this party.  I heard the initial buzz, which went something like “This movie glorifies criminal behavior!”.  In case you’re even later to this movie than me, Wolf is about Jordan Belfort.  He was one of these 90’s brokers that make himself a ton of money selling near-worthless stock to unsuspecting investors over the phone.

With all the news stories about how bad the bankers are acting, most of the media seemed to jump on the bandwagon against this movie.  I really liked it.  I’m a Martin Scorsese fan, but it was more than that.  Wolf is about the camaraderie of a group of characters that build a company together.  You don’t see the people that lost their money, but quite frankly, can you really feel sorry for people who got taken because of their own greed?

The debauchery is over the top.  Jonah Hill is a complete maniac and Leo DeCaprio absolutely nails the character of Belfort.  This three hour movie didn’t feel like three hours and in fact, I was waiting for a run down of what happened to the true life characters.  Sadly, a lot was changed for the movie so it didn’t happen.

Anyhow, if you haven’t see Wolf, you should.  It’s a fun, vulgar ride.  Don’t miss it, bros.  I give The Wolf of Wall Street 9 out of 10 keggers.
