Everybody has recently talked about the new movie “The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. While some of the talk is about the action, most of the discussion is about a peculiar record that the movie set.
One might think that a movie that debuts on Christmas Day is about the holidays and other happy things. But, if you thought that going in, you were probably sadly mistaken.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” broke the record for the most frequent use of a certain word (Hint hint: It starts with “F”).
While the movie does have a lot of suspense regarding the actions of former stock broker Jordan Belford, most people who discuss the movie do not talk about the plot at all. They talk about the record-breaking use of this foul word.
It is amazing how one little word can set the stage for a movie’s popularity. It was done when “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut” debuted in 1999 and a few years later when an episode of the television show featured an on-screen counter displaying the word’s frequency.
While there will be no spoilers in this article, “The Wolf of Wall Street” is full of suspense and intrigue that often times leaves the viewer on the edge of his seat.
Even without the foul language and other things one may see in an R-rated movie, the movie stands on its own as one that constantly keeps the moviegoer interested.
Yet, one always goes back to the foul language. While some areas may not be used to it, others view it as an everyday part of life. It’s just about how you look at it.
DiCaprio is getting a lot of buzz for his portrayal of Jordan Belford—he just got an Oscar nomination for his role. But, it is because he became that character…not just because he blew up the movie with foul language. However, if it is entertainment you are looking for, “The Wolf of Wall Street” is a bleeping great movie!
