PLEASE NOTE: Due to the strong sexual content in this film some readers have been confused about our “review” of this movie. Like most R-rated movies, we did not review The Wolf of Wall Street but instead we provide you with content information through various government and industry ratings agencies. In addition the vast media coverage of this film has repeatedly indicated it contains frequent graphic sex scenes and over 500 sexual expletives. Parents are wise to heed the R-rating on this movie. As you are visiting our site it is highly unlikely you will find this movie in any way appropriate for children or teens.
Because we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Note: It took a few nips and tucks forThe Wolf Street of Wall Street to stay within an R rating. Director Martin Scorsese edited some of the nudity and sex scenes to prevent the film from receiving the more restrictive NC-17 rating from the MPAA.
Synopsis: Who has the charisma to pull off being a stock market genius, enjoying the high life and—even after getting incarcerated for fraud—managing to rise as a public speaker and business consultant? Jordon Belfort. Nicknamed The Wolf of Wall Street, this bio-drama (starring Leonardo DiCaprio) is based on his life and crimes.
