Book vs. Movie Edit

Lots of clips from the movie are literally as described in the book, but the script still is different than the book. There is more space created to make the transition from student Jordan Belfort at LF Rothschild to Stratton Oakmont is operating at full screen. The FBI officer comes prominently into view, while in the book only opdraaft to the eventual arrest. One big difference is that in the movie Jordan, while speaking to its staff, the deal with the Securities and Exchange Commission nevertheless rejects yet. In the book he agrees and gives the reins to Danny Porush, plunging the office into the abyss. At the end of the film shows that even as Jordan Belfort power is going to earn by giving lectures. The Jewish background of Jordan, which he frequently recalls in his autobiography, the film is virtually untraceable.
