jOBS is a 2013 drama film based on the career of the American businessman and global Steve Jobs. It follows his life from 1971 until his death in 2011. The title is played by Ashton Kutcher, with Josh Gad playing the role of Apple Computer's co- Steve Wozniak. Filming began in June 2012 with over three days of filming on at Jobs' childhood home in California, followed by 28 days of in Los Angeles. The official movie site said: "jOBS is the incredibly powerful and true story of the visionary who out to change the world, and did…[it] into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story [and an] personal portrait of Steve Jobs' life."

The moviemakers decided to write the movie title in a special way, to the small "j" with the small "i" that is part of so many Apple products. The film was with very mixed initial and got just a 43% approval on the review site rottentomatoes.com. Many critics on Kutcher, suggesting better actors should have the part. Britain's 'Guardian' newspaper wrote: "This is far from the some would have envisaged, but neither is it the character illumination one would for. Jobs appears so consumed by his work here that little else mattered in his life. That may be true, but we're left none the as to what made the man , beyond what we already know."
