Steve Wozniak on "Jobs": “The movie wasn't a quality movie"

Coming up this evening at 9, “Piers Morgan Live” invites Steve Wozniak to share his perspective on Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, and offer details of his relationship with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and their new baby, North West. In addition to transportation and tabloid fodder, the Apple co-founder also offers his unfiltered review of the new film “Jobs.”

The much anticipated Steve Jobs biopic opened this past Friday, and after seeing it, Wozniak had plenty to share. In fact, he made it all too clear that he just plain didn’t like the film:

“The movie wasn't a quality movie. I was hoping for a great movie that showed Steve Jobs, his brilliance, and how he could come up with ideas and argue with people and make decisions," the man nicknamed "Woz" tells Piers Morgan this evening. "Also the nasty side of him, the one that you love and hate. I wanted those emotions again, and the movie was flat.”

Wozniak admits that biographical films are inherently fictional, and that there is no way to recreate the past completely accurately.

But “Jobs,” he claims, not only fails to assign the correct meaning to scenes, but also fails completely in any attempt to adhere to reality:

“Almost every scene in the movie never happened,” says Wozniak.

Furthermore, tonight's guest was insulted by a certain musical inaccuracy in the movie:

“I was so offended that they portrayed me as the pop Beatles guy, and Steve was the hip [Bob] Dylan guy," laughed Woz. "Wait a minute, I had every Dylan album. No Beatles albums."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's lively interview with Wozniak, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    "I was once in a Movie, Pierce. I was even the Character who stood in the window of an RAF, enlistment/recruiting center once upon a time. No I guess that job didn't last long either. I was shoved upstairs to another Flight!!"

    At the end of Steve Wozinak's interview with Piers he asked Piers if he had any two dollar bills. Not sure if this was joke
    or whatever. I have had a US 2.00 bill for over 30 yrs. Could you let me if Steve is a collector or?????

    I await a reply.

    Wozniak didn't care for it and he knew the guy.
    What do you expect they need to at least try to sell tickets. They need to fluff up the movie as much as possible.
