Ashton Kutcher actually played Jobs
well.... he had the walk down, mannerisms, all that. I didn't know Steve Jobs was an asshole like that.
At least, he had to be, they wouldn't have just thrown in that dialogue for no reason and curve people's view.
My issue with the film was this.
None of the other characters were likable. It was seriously like the director found all the dispensable actors in movies you've seen over the years, people you instantly forgot about once you left the theater, and threw them in this movie.
I mean... Josh Gad? Come on. I don't care if his character has a bad ending. Actually, I hope for it.
Dermot Mulroney? The guy that played Gavin on Friends?
Who likes that guy?
The boss in the newsroom from the Tobey Maguire Spiderman movies. Who likes that guy?
They didn't round back to the beginning, they ended it weirdly, some random moments where you were like, "Why...? Why was that important?". There would be like 10 minutes I thought were really well done (like Kutcher walking through the computer fair and then giving the presentation), and then 40 minutes of stuff I could easily pick apart.
My biggest takeaway is Kutcher's solid performance as Steve Jobs. He was a miscast because he just doesn't exude what you have in your mind, however you can tell he worked his *** off and really learned everything about the man Steve Jobs. And that I can give props for.
