"The Wolf of Wall Street" is the latest movie to get the Honest Trailer treatment from Screen Junkies, and it's excessively awesome.
Focusing on the abundance of bad language, nudity, and pretty much any other vice you could imagine, the trailer takes jabs at the incredible excess of Martin Scorsese's latest collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio -- right down to its three hour running time.
Whether you're a fan of "The Wolf of Wall Street" or the Honest Trailers, this parody is sure to have you howling with laughter. Yeah, we said it.

- 'The Quick and the Dead' (1995)
In Sam Raimi's pulp Western, DiCaprio's cocky young gunslinger The Kid enters the quick-draw contest run by the cruel shootout champion Herod (Gene Hackman), whom the Kid claims is his father. Having failed to win Herod's love, respect, attention, or even acknowledgement, the Kid challenges Herod to a street showdown. Kid's bullet grazes Herod's neck, but the old man is still quicker on the draw. In what may be the single most florid death scene of DiCaprio's career, the Kid collapses into the dust, is cradled in a double pieta by two women, moans, "I don't want to die!", and reaches out in vain toward Herod. Finally, he expires, with a single tear rolling down his cheek.
- 'Romeo + Juliet' (1996)
Nearly two decades before he directed DiCaprio in "Gatsby," Baz Luhrmann cast him as Romeo in this modern-day Shakespeare adaptation. As in the original play, Romeo poisons himself when he discovers Juliet's (Claire Danes) apparently lifeless body. In this version, however, she wakes up just before he dies, so that both of them can realize too late what a terrible mistake they've made. And instead of stabbing herself, Juliet uses a gun.
- 'Titanic' (1997)
In his most famous on-screen death, DiCaprio's Jack does everything he can to insure that Rose (Kate Winslet) survives the maritime disaster. Most notably, he lets her climb on top of that ornately carved panel of driftwood while he dangles off the side, with most of his body submerged in the icy but calm Atlantic. When the rescue boat finally arrives, Rose tries to awaken Jack, but he has quietly and chivalrously frozen to death. She pries his hands from her makeshift raft and sends him plummeting to his ocean-floor tomb, his arms still outstretched toward her. After such self-sacrifice, it's the least Rose can do to live a very long life, full of adventure and romance.
- 'The Departed' (2006)
"I just want my life back," complains Billy Costigan (DiCaprio), the Boston police's deep cover mole inside the Costello Mob. He finally gets his wish, but not in the way he expected. Having ferreted out Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon), the Mob's deep cover mole inside the police department, he's about to bring Sullivan into custody, But when the elevator door opens, another cop shoots Billy in the head, his brains splattering all over the back of the elevator. The officer explains to Sullivan that he, too, is a secret Costello operative. Rather than support his colleague, Sullivan considers him a loose end and shoots him dead. Now he can make it look like Costigan's shooter was the sole mole, throwing suspicion off himself. In the process, he has to make Costigan look like a hero, complete with an honor-guard funeral. In death, Costigan finally gets the recognition he's always craved for his courageous police work.
- 'Blood Diamond' (2006)
As gun-runner Danny Archer, DiCaprio is a cynic who slowly grows a conscience over the course of the film, as he befriends crusading American journalist Maddy (Jennifer Connelly) and helps rescue diamond miner Solomon (Djimon Hounsou) and his son from civil war in West Africa. For his troubles, Danny is fatally wounded in a gun battle with mercenaries. Having found a picturesque place to die, on top of a peak overlooking a lush valley, Danny calls Maddy on his cell phone to tell her where to find Solomon, and to say goodbye. Don't worry, he pants with his final breaths. "I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be."
- 'J. Edgar' (2011)
In Clint Eastwood's biopic of J. Edgar Hoover, the longtime FBI director expires off-screen, but his death is still surrounded by intrigue. Hoover (DiCaprio, buried in old-age makeup) is 77 when he passes away from an apparent heart attack. Shortly before his death, he's seen at work, occasionally clutching his chest in pain, then brushing off the spasms as if they were nothing. He goes home, greets his housekeeper, and goes upstairs to his room. But then his longtime secretary (Naomi Watts) takes a call, and it's clear from her face what the news is. Hoover's longtime aide and rumored lover, The housekeeper shows Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer) into Hoover's bedroom, where he finds Hoover's body on the floor, shirtless. Weeping, he covers Hoover in a blanket. Meanwhile, President Nixon sends in his men to seize Hoover's secret files, but they're gone, already shredded by the loyal secretary.
- 'Django Unchained' (2012)
In Quentin Tarantino's revenge drama, DiCaprio is Calvin Candie, antebellum plantation owner, sadistic slavemaster, and captor of the hero's wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). In this scenario, you'd expect the slave-turned-bounty hunter Django (Jamie Foxx) to be the one to kill Candie, and you'd expect him to make the death slow and painful. Instead, it's Django's colleague King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) who fires the fatal shot, shocking everyone present. Candie is in a drawing room, reaching out to shake Schultz's hand when the German bounty hunter pulls out a concealed Derringer and fires quietly into Candie's boutonniere. Blood spatters the white carnation, echoing the shot elsewhere in the film of blood spattering white tufts of unharvested cotton in the field. "I couldn't resist" shrugs Schultz, before he is shot in retaliation, sparking a massive bloodbath.
