"The Wolf of Wall Street" movie quotes put a comedic spin on the true story of a shady New York stockbroker. The biographical comedy film was directed by Martin Scorsese using a screenplay by Terence Winter, which was based on the memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort. Just in time for awards contention, "The Wolf of Wall Street" opened in theaters on December 25, 2013.

In "The Wolf of Wall Street," Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) tells his story of being a boy from Queens who started his own stock brokerage firm at the age of 22 and by the age of 26 was making nearly a million a week. Of course if it sounds too good, or legal, to be true, it surely is. While Jordan, along with Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill) and a crew of 1,000 stockbrokers, made more money than they knew what to do with, they did so fraudulently. So when the FBI comes knocking on Jordan's lavish yacht, he isn't interested in cooperating with their investigation into securities fraud, corruption and mob infiltration. Instead, he finds some really creative ways to spend his money while he still can. Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner and Jon Favreau co-star in the comedy.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" has received critical acclaim but it isn't the only movie to hit theaters in late 2013 and joins the likes of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" "Her," "American Hustle," "Saving Mr. Banks," "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Out of the Furnace," "The Last Days on Mars," "12 Years a Slave," "Frozen," "Oldboy," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man," "Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas," "Ender's Game, "The Counselor," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Don Jon," "Rush, and "Prisoners".
