Biopic of Steve Jobs (Ashton Kutcher) who along with Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) brought creative ideas in the world of computers, technology and business. Also with Dermot Mulroney, Lukas Haas and J.K. Simmons. Directed by Joshua Michael Stern. [2:02]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman are shown in bed together; he is shirtless while she wears a tank top with bared arms and shoulders, showing a bit of cleavage and we can see that she is not wearing a bra (nipples do not show).
 A woman lying on a blanket outside kisses a man lying next to her and they both say, "I love you" and several quick scenes in a montage show the couple wrapped in blankets in a chair, kissing.
 In a TV commercial a woman wearing a tank top and short track shorts runs and has a bouncing bosom. A poster on an office wall features a woman wearing a bikini that shows cleavage. In a bedroom scene a woman is covered with a quilt and a man lying beside her is shirtless. A man is seen shirtless and wearing jeans while lying in the grass.
 A man returns from a trip to see his girlfriend in his house dancing with another man; later, she tells the first man that she's pregnant, and that it is not his, but the second man's; the man yells loudly, "Get out of my house! Now!" and the woman cries (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details).
 A man plays a recorded joke: what is long and hard that a Polish bride gets on her wedding night? The answer is a new name.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A man ejects his girlfriend from his house (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details) and then throws her purse across a bedroom, hitting a wall and he cries alone, hysterically. A man's best friend at work quits the company and both men cry briefly.
 A man drives over the speed limit continually, day and night; in one night scene, he screams in anger as he drives; in a daytime scene, he shouts at other drivers to hurry up and get out of the way and argues briefly with a passenger in his car.
 A man shouts at coworkers for not thinking creatively and for giving up too easily; his boss berates him, but gives him an independent project to keep him away from other people.
 In a garage set up for a computer lab, a man shouts at coworkers, saying they need to produce more with their work, because he is overworked and no one else cares; several more short arguments take place over a few weeks. A man shouts loudly at his employees in three scenes and fires one man off the work floor; people stare at him as if afraid of him. A younger man argues with an older computer storeowner about the worth of a computer motherboard; both men become louder until a third man intervenes with an acceptable compromise. Board members argue with a founding CEO and fire him from the CEO position and they then fire him from the company, because his projects cost too much money. A man lies in the grass at home and screams in anger. A man is so angry that his hands shake in several scenes and twice he stares at himself in a mirror until he calms down. A man cries in a garage computer lab, while his father hugs him.
 Shouting loudly, the head of a computer company calls the head of another computer company and tells the second man, still shouting, that he will sue him for stealing software; the first man hangs up so loudly that the phone breaks; later, the first man takes out a full-page ad in the "Wall Street Journal" denigrating the second man's company and products. A company founder argues several times with board members and the CEO, shouting and cursing; after the board fires the first man, they lose revenue and stockholders argue amongst themselves loudly; they fire the CEO, the founder returns as CEO and he forces the other board members to resign, including long-time friends causing arguments.

PROFANITY 5 - About 2 F-words, 13 scatological terms, 8 anatomical terms, 12 mild obscenities, name-calling (stupid, idiot, junk, freaks, Manson Family, overweight, lunatic, joke, court jester, over-bloated disaster, psychopathic criminal), stereotypical references to inventors, computer geeks, loners, business people, college students, parents, man, women, recreational drug users, exclamations (shut-up), 4 religious exclamations (e.g. Jesus, Jeez, God knows what). [profanity glossary]

SUBSTANCE USE - A woman gives a man some LSD dots and we see the woman and two men lying on their backs on a blanket while staring at the sky and speaking about beauty in the trees and sun (we see blurred images of the sun from their point of view), an intoxicated man wanders into a field of tall grasses where he twirls and lies on his back, and we see men and women dancing while smoking marijuana. Men and women drink glasses of champagne at a company headquarters celebration, a man drinks a bottle of beer alone in an office conference room, a few men and women drink wine with lunch at a restaurant, and men and women drink wine and beer as well as cocktails at a banquet.

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
