‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Too Much or Just Right?

‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ hit theaters with a bang on Christmas Day, earning $9.2 million. The film which cost approximately $125 million to make did not earn enough to beat ‘The Hobbit’ on Dec. 25. ‘Hobbit’ brought in a slightly higher $9.3 million on Christmas, taking the lead at the box office.

Those who thought ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ was going to be a cheery Christmas movie were in for a rude awakening. Moviegoers were exposed to scantily clad women, drug use, and the outrageous behavior of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio).

From midgets being thrown through an office, to Coco Chanel’s yacht sinking off the coast of Italy, Scorsese truly showed it all.
