The Wolf of Wall Street is universally praised, but I found myself enjoying it less than expected.  DiCaprio’s performance is great as usual.  The crazy drug and sex filled work and lives are comedic.  The themes of addiction to greed/drug/sex are exceptionally well presented.  My only problem is its pacing.  I believe more than 30 minutes of useless dialogue in the 3-hour movie can be cut without affecting the story or the major characters.  I still like The Aviator (2004) much more.
