Is this movie doing anything new? At this point, "white Wall Street conmen experience meteoric rise and disgraceful plummet, as accompanied by prostitutes and drugs; cause us to question our own social values" isn't new ground to tread. In a year where we had some pretty cool and unusual things happening in mainstream cinema (an animated "princess" movie where the most important relationship was between two sisters, a space thriller whose face was a middle-aged woman, a high-grossing action movie starring a young woman, a sci-fi blockbuster where 2/3 leads were NOT white men, a female buddy-cop movie), this just seems....tired. And honestly, nothing in this movie asks any questions that haven't been asked a million times, in similar explorations. Lets celebrate Progress not Excess.

I would have to agree this movie is great just a bit to long... I enjoyed it. The best was Jonah hill acting like a complete jackass at times. B+

DiCaprio is excellent (as usual). Jonah Hill is very good too. That's saying a lot for me because I ma not a fan of Jonah Hill. For the most part I agree completely with Richard here. The movie is way too long and after a while you get worn down by watching this group of criminals in their excess and periods of self destruction. I would give this movie a B instead of a B+.
