Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Jobs is a biopic about late Apple founder/CEO Steve Jobs. As a young man, Jobs smokes marijuana and experiments with hallucinogens, and other characters drink and smoke. Two of Jobs' romances are depicted -- a one-night stand and his long-term college relationship. He's shown kissing in bed with each of them, but that's it; there's no nudity or graphic content. The language is fairly typical of a mature drama, with the occasional use of "s--t," "a--hole," and one "f--king." Expect countless references to Apple's early product innovations -- both the successes and the failures, from the original Apple computer to the iPod. Several car makes are also featured prominently -- Mercedes, Porsche, Corvette Stingray, Volvo, and more. Ultimately, this movie is likely to particularly appeal to families and teens interested in technology and Apple devices.

Sexual Content

A couple of love scenes early on -- one between Jobs and a random woman at Reed College, and another trippy scene between Jobs and his college girlfriend. Kissing in bed is shown, but nothing more graphic.

Violence

Steve is volatile and yells at people -- including his pregnant girlfriend. He also throws things a couple of times.

Language

Occasional strong language includes two uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "a--hole," "bulls--t," "hell," "ass," "Jesus" (as an exclamation), and more.

Social Behavior

The message of Steve Jobs' life is that, to be innovative, you have to commit to a greater vision than just making money -- you have to set out to change the way people live and, in the case of technology, to merge it with design and beauty. But the message is also that a life that's only about work isn't completely fulfilled.

Consumerism

Since the movie chronicles the history of Apple, it features detailed conversations about various Apple products, ads, town hall speeches, and more -- from the original Apple II to the Macintosh to the pivotal iPod reveal. Jobs' cars are also depicted: a Volvo wagon, a Porsche, a Stingray, a Mercedes. Apple's competitors IBM and Microsoft are mentioned, and the Apple CEO is lured from Pepsi. Rod drives a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and Steve once worked at Atari.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Steve and his friends do drugs (marijuana and LSD, which is portrayed as a mind-enhancing experience), particularly while at Reed College. But he stops as he gets older, and later he criticizes a friend for always smoking pot and not being focused on the business. Rod smokes cigarettes.
