New this month Continuity mistake: During Mark and Jordan's meal, the second time they do the chest thumping ritual, in the side angles Leo Di Caprio can't help sneer and tries hard not to burst out laughing.

This was due to the fact that the scene was improvised, as Matthew McConaughey once told: https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/matthew-mcconaughey-interview-gold-wolf-of-wall-street-lunch-scene-chest-thumping-tune-film-a7557551.html.

Trivia: The humming chant Matthew McConaughey does and Leonardo DiCaprio adopts is actually something McConaughey does before scenes to relax himself and clear his head. He did it before shooting the scene with DiCaprio in the restaurant, and after a few takes DiCaprio suggested that it was put in the scene, so it stayed.
