QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A young man starts a computer company only to have to deal with its growing pains, including his relationship with those who helped him start it as well as clashing with a price conscious corporate board.
PLOT:
In 1974, Steve Jobs (ASHTON KUTCHER) is a smart young man who's trying to figure out his place in life, and while he's dropped out of Reed College, he still drops in for classes, much to the admiration of his friend, Daniel Kottke (LUKAS HAAS). Two years later, Steve is working for Atari and he calls in his friend, Steve "Woz" Wozniak (JOSH GAD), to help him complete a game project. Seeing a prototype computer that Woz has created, Steve believes they can sell it. With the help of Daniel, Rod Holt (RON ELDARD), Bill Fernandez (VICTOR RASUK) and young Chris Espinoza (EDDIE HASSELL), they create a computer company they decide to call Apple.

Their invention draws the attention of tech investor Mike Markkula (DERMOT MULRONEY), all of which results in rapid growth as well as the creation of a board of directors a few years later. Its chairman, Arthur Rock (J.K. SIMMONS), becomes concerned with Steve's wild-sounding ideas and associated cost overruns. Accordingly, Steve agrees to have John Sculley (MATTHEW MODINE), who previously ran Pepsi, hired as Apple's new CEO. But with Steve's prickly personality and demand for innovation and perfection, it's only a matter of time before things come to head in terms of leadership at the company once it goes public.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or are interested in the early days of Steve Jobs.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some drug content and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
