Ashton Kutcher's 'Jobs' Movie Now Available on iTunes

"Jobs," the Steve Jobs biography directed by Joshua Michael Stern and starring both Ashton Kutcher as Jobs and Josh Gad as Wozniak, can now be purchased or rented in iTunes.

The film, which scored a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes, can be purchased for $19.99 in high definition or $14.99 in standard definition. A 24-hour rental is also available for $3.99 (SD) or $4.99 (HD).


"Jobs" can also be purchased or rented via Amazon Instant Video for $14.99 and $4.99, respectively, and it is available on both Blu-ray ($22.99) and DVD ($17.99) from Amazon.com.

Originally released on August 16, the movie received mixed reviews from critics, who felt that it was unappealing and focused too heavily on Apple rather than on the life of Steve Jobs. Original Apple employees like Daniel Kottke and Bill Fernandez also criticized the movie for its inaccuracies.

During its opening weekend, "Jobs" made just $6.7 million, which was below the $8–9 million projected by its distributor, Open Road Films. In theaters the movie, which had a budget of $12 million, has earned $16.1 million in the U.S. and $19.8 million abroad, for a worldwide total of $35.9 million.

Another Steve Jobs movie, from screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, remains in the works with a prospective 2014 release date.

I didn't want to watch it when it came out, and it don't want to watch it now. Do yourself a favor and instead of watching this, watch the 2007 iPhone announcement. Or any other Steve Jobs keynote, for that matter. They're so good.

Its Ashton Kutcher, you know its gonna suck. Him and quality don't go together. Accept that and you'll prolly have an easier time enjoying the movie for the piece of crap that it is.

I believe the film was held to a standard that was simply impossible to reach given it's circumstances. I saw the film and actually quite enjoyed it! I think many of us went into seeing the movie expecting it to truly, in two hours, encompass the legacy that Steve has left. To be "worthy" of him. Now, while even I'll admit the film did fall short of that, it's certainly worth a watch if you have the time.

I didnt expect to like this mainly because of the critical panning it had received but I enjoyed.

It's not an especially intelligent film and tackles the Jobs story very literally. But I think AK did Jobs proud.
