Jobs: A Spoiler-Free Review Of The Movie All Apple Fans Must See

Jobs: A Spoiler-Free Review Of The Movie All Apple Fans Must See

You’re going to see it. Here’s what to expect.

Look, I’ll be straight with you, I’m not a movie critic. Nope, just an average moviegoer. But I am an Apple fan, and probably, like you, one who greatly admired Steven P. Jobs.

So ever since last Tuesday, when I got to sit through an early screening of Ashton Kutcher’s much-hyped new movie, Jobs, people have been asking me what I think of it. Is this a film that lives up to the buzz? Did Kutcher deliver? Or more often, “Just how bad was it?”

Well…

You might think it’s too soon for a movie about Steve Jobs. After all, the Apple co-founder walked off the world stage just 676 days before Friday’s premiere of Jobs, the movie about him that stars Ashton Kutcher.

I had that same uneasy feeling sitting through the interminable 122-minute Jobs, a PG-13 movie that frequently stalls like a spinning beach ball.

Ashton Kutcher Drops Some Deep Steve Jobs Quotes At The Teen Choice Awards

ashton-kutcher-as-steve-jobs

So, Ashton Kutcher, right? His first name is actually Chris. He met up with about a bazillion teen fans at Nickelodeon’s Teen Choice Awards last night to receive the Ultimate Choice Award from the kid-centric cable network, and told them some deep stuff.

First up, according to Kutcher, is that “opportunities look a lot like work.” He said that any job he ever had was never beneath him. And he worked at them hard, and never quit one job until he had another. He then said that “the sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart, and being thoughtful, and being generous.” Everything else, said the handsome, well-off, successful actor, “is crap; I promise you.”

So far, so good. Then he laid some Steve Jobs wisdom on the young crowd, which got increasingly quiet during the five minute acceptance speech.

Ashton Kutcher: Steve Jobs Was Kind Of Like A Great Football Coach [Video]

ashtononcolbert

Getting into the psyche of any major historical figure is a difficult task, especially when you’ve never even met them, so to sympathize with Steve Jobs’ dick-ish behavior for his role in JOBS, Ashton Kutchers says he thought of Steve as kind of like a great football coach.

During an appearance on The Colbert Report, Kutcher says he can totally relate to why Steve Jobs berated people, because his high school football coach/uncle used to throw temper tantrums to make the team better too.

Kutcher told Colbert that he also thinks the way Steve sought love and appreciation from people was by obsessing about making perfect products for them, so that kind of justified being an asshole to people.

Here’s the full interview:
