'iSteve' parody film now available for viewing on Funny or Die After a one day delay, the parody Steve Jobs movie 'iSteve' is now available for viewing online.
The movie will star Justin Long as Jobs and Jorge Garcia of 'Lost' as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. The movie will be about 80 minutes long.

iSteve comes on the heels of Ashton Kutcher's 'jOBS' biopic being delayed, and Aaron Sorkin's Sony-backed Jobs biopic being set for release in late 2014.

The movie is a satire of biopics in general and will stretch facts and stick completely to Funny or Die's comedy roots, although the long-form film is certainly a move away from the site's regular content, which are 5 minute clips or shorter.

Funny-ish but patchy.

Had a hard time telling on occasion what was made up sometimes, I don't think that was me but the style... you had to be really familiar with the real story and I only know some of it.

I thought Jorge Garcia's portrait of Wozniak was a highlight... how he was treated like crap but was still utterly devoted to Jobs like a puppy was hilarious.

Having the guy who was Apple in all the Apple vs PC ads play Jobs was a coup I suppose. He wasn't bad... in a way perhaps he was meant to represent Jobs in those commercials at the time.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
