    After being delayed yesterday, Funny Or Die's Steve Jobs movie "iSteve" has now been released online. The movie stars Justin Long as Steve Jobs and Lost's Jorge Garcia as Steve Wozniak.

    The film is the longest video produced by the humor site and runs nearly 80 minutes long. The script for the film was written in three days and filmed in five.

    The filmmakers have joked that the film may not be the best Steve Jobs movie, but that it would be the first. A Jobs film called "Jobs", starring Ashton Kutcher, is set to debut this year while Sony Pictures is making an Aaron Sorkin-written film based on the biography by Walter Isaacson.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm not all that interested in this.

    I haven't watched the whole thing, but I skipped around and watched a few scenes, it looks pretty bad. Can't see myself sitting through 80 minutes of that. I like Funny or Die but it looks like a miss on this one. Would have been funnier to do a really good 5 minute accelerated version.

    Sounds like they were going for the "so bad it's good" approach.

    When casting, it’s as though these companies think “Oh, you look like a fat, hairy ’tard with glasses. Wozniak it is! Perfect.”

    What a joke.

    Yes. And he was actually good in those commercials, probably should have passed on this thing.

    ehh...

    That's all I can say.

    EDIT -
    First 15 minutes are interesting. A Funny way of looking at the early years. Then they introduce bill gates in the most stupid way possible, and then there's a stupid scene of bill and steve hammering Pentium 2 boards and they talk about "programming" then melinda gates walks in... so stupid.

    The poster makes it look like John Goodman from The Big Lebowski...which as a movie was infinitely funnier than this will be.

    They should have got John Hodgman to be Steve Wozniak.

    Skipping around, it is obviously intentionally bad, but it can't even be laughably bad because it overstays its welcome. Would be better as a 5-minute short, not 79-minutes.

    That is the joke. It's Hurley from Lost, with the exact same haircut. Obviously intentional.

    Problem is, it's not really funny.

    So far it's packed full of deliberate inaccuracies and anachronistic set pieces.

    Great fake Steve Miller Band song at the end. "that russian panther is a real fine dancer"

    Pretty much unwatchable.

    Watched the first few minutes. Appears to be worth the price.

    It'll likely be the 2nd best, behind the Aaron Sorkin film.
    From what I hear, "Jobs" (the Kutcher film) isn't very good.
    5.7 out of 10.0 on IMDb.com: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2357129/
