Trivia

In the scene in which it is revealed Jobs sold his stock from the merger, he is listening to "Walk on the Ocean" by the band Toad the Wet Sprocket. However, while the original recording of the song was released at the time, the recording used in the film was released in April 2011, 6 months before his death. See more »

Kutcher is so wrong for this movie
18 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whoever thought the Kutcher could play Steve Jobs needs their head examined! He makes the movie so difficult to watch (where was the director for God's sake!).

But the problems don't end there. Jobs' life is only partially portrayed, so if you only know about Jobs being at Apple--that is still pretty much all you know about him. Engineers are portrayed, as they typically are in "Hollywood" films--nerdy enough to be uncool.

Where is the story??!! Most people will be lost, there is not much continuity, and you are left at the end wondering why you came to the movie. You didn't learn anything new about Jobs, you are not sure what the point was, and yet you spent two painful hours trying to get something out of this film.

It's a shame this movie was so awful.
