The opening scene of Jobs, the feeble biopic of the iconic Apple founder, is the one that keeps recurring throughout the film, with varying degrees of hagiographical worship, which is never less than lofty.

While entertaining, the film doesn't achieve the ultimate goal of Steve Jobs' work: to make the things that matter beautiful and to find beauty in the small moments.

This movie would be exponentially better if it were called Twenty-Something Jobs or Jobs, Woz And The First 2 Apples.

Gets points for ambition, but ultimately feels like a made-for-TV movie mistakenly playing at the multiplex.

The history of a company isn't as compelling as the history of a person, especially one as complex, innovative and influential as Steve Jobs.

Jobs is nothing but a collection of moments, with no particular aim, no attempt to really explain the man, even reductively.

Jobs feels more like a movie about Apple than the man who founded it.

Hollywood might someday design a sleek, prestige biopic worthy of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. For now, he's gotten a Dell.

The poverty of [Kutcher's] skills as a serious actor is on full display.

Seeing these seminal moments recreated onscreen is certainly entertaining, but the filmmakers at times rely a little to heavily on an all too reverent approach to Jobs the man.

A passionate attempt, Jobs ultimately lacks the polish and 'greatness' that Steve Jobs routinely aimed to deliver in his own products.

A noble but unworthy effort that will likely disappoint viewers looking for a thoughtful look into the technological genius.

One of the reasons I hated this Joshua Michael Stern's need to find it necessary to spoon feed his audience to the point of being completely patronizing.

A junior high term paper about Steve Jobs, using Apple's marketing materials as the main source, answering the unasked question, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MYTHOS?!

It's an entertaining film that could have been as riveting as The Social Network but ends up being fun-on-cable during a lazy weekend afternoon.

Didn't this man have a family? Battle cancer? Innovate more than just home computers?

For a film so slavish to glorifying the history of Apple, it doesn't do the memory of Jobs many favors.

jOBS demonstrates the difference between a great impression and an inspired performance.

Steered by a lead actor and director, Joshua Michael Stern, who are both way out of their respective leagues, Jobs is excrutiating, failing to entertain and all but pissing on its subject's grave.
