Corrected entry: When they are in Italy on the boat, they find out they need to go to Montecarlo in order to reach Switzerland. They have a chopper. Italy is right next to Switzerland. It makes no sense that they would take a boat to Montecarlo to get to Switzerland, especially given the weather they'd have to sail through.Christophe Huysecom
Corrected entry: Early in the movie, during Black Monday, Jordan Belfort is sitting at his desk at L.F. Rothschild; there is an electronic Ticker Tape running in the background, and all the stock prices are green, indicating higher prices - on Black Monday, stocks dropped 22%.The same all green electronic Ticker Tape is used in the background at other stages on the movie. (00:10:00 - 01:00:00)
Corrected entry: When Jordan drives his Lamborghini Countach high on lemons, he leaves the passenger door open but then it's suddenly closed. (02:02:45)
Continuity mistake: In the very last scene in New Zealand when Jordan is giving a motivational speech, he approaches his first target in the audience and says 'Sell me this pen.' As he does so, he holds out a pen in his right hand. When we cut to the shot to the person's face, we see that the pen is in Jordan's left hand; this goes on and on with every person.

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.Jon Sandys
