The ill-begotten Steve Jobs’ biopic has just been released in theaters. This movie takes place between Apple’s start up years in the 1970s all the way to the introduction of the first iPod in 2001. You can watch the following trailer or perhaps you’ll maybe just want to read the book instead. Ashton Kutcher is featured as Steve Jobs while Josh Gad plays Steve “Woz” Wozniak. The film is just over two hours long and it is rated PG-13.

Jobs is a point-A-to-point-B story about a uniquely innovative thinker and ruthless businessman — one that had a notable and meaningful impact on the world. It’s a good film, but it’s also very “safe” — a familiar story that doesn’t try for a bigger picture. It’s not destined to be the Great Jobs Biopic — and yes, there will be many in the years and decades to come — but it’s worth taking a chance on for Kutcher’s performance.
