The biopic jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs has been shown at the Sundance film festival where it received mixed reviews, in fact the film is currently sitting on 43% over at rotten tomatoes. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has previously been quoted to criticise the film’s inaccuracies, though these comments are in response to just a short clip that was released following the Sundance debut.
Some of Wozniak’s comments were as follows;
Our relationship was so different than what was portrayed. I’m embarrassed but if the movie is fun and entertaining, all the better. Anyone who reads my book iWoz can get a clearer picture.
The important thing is whether the meaning portrayed is correct. It’s ok to make up a dramatic scene but is much better if it sort of happened and had the meaning portrayed. But this is only one short clip of the movie.
It seems that anyone eagerly anticipating the formal release of jOBS is going to have to keep waiting, Open Road Films have announced that the film has been postponed until further notice.
Originally scheduled for an April release, the delay appears to be to allow more time for marketing and promotion of the film, though a new release window has not been announced.
