There is stock footage of San Francisco playing to transition to a morning scene half way though the movie. One scene is a 'sunrise' of the bay bridge. The stock footage is a sunset, rather than sunrise because the sun is setting in the west and not rising in the east of San Francisco. See more »
You know I see hipster dudes like you come in here everyday. Crying about how their phone died, and how they need a new phone. They're like little crackheads. They got crazy eyes and they're all scratchy. And like "I need a new phone man."
I'm not a crackhead.
Then you're not. You're worse than a crackhead. Cause at least a crackhead gets up off the couch every now and then to go get some more crack. Crackhead says hello to all his little crackhead friends. A crackhead gets his steps in. But ...

"Jexi" starring Adam Devine (Modern Family) and Alexandra Shipp. First thing to know is this is NOT a movie for kids under 16. Very adult humor and language. With that said, it's an adult comedy and it's really well done. Jexi is the artificial intelligence in a new smart phone. I give the credit to Kurk Vonnegut's 1950 short story EPICAC about a computer the develops an awareness and even falls in love asked being asked to write love poetry for the inspiration for this movie. We can also give credit to the very cute 1984 movie "Electric Dreams" where a computer is asked to compose music for a man's love interest.. and the computer gets a little too involved.
Unlike EPICAC and "Electric Dreams", "Jexi" is far more raunchy and mischievous. Devine has been great in his film work and doesn't fail to entertain. Shipp is the epitome of the cute love interest (she's an excellent actress, very natural, and stunningly pretty). Wanda Sykes isn't on the screen a lot, but she's her natural "hoot" and oh, so, memorable! Funny lady!! And Michael Peña is also a blast at being Phil's (Devine's) boss in the movie.
Very good adult comedy. If you're easily offended, don't see it. If you think your kid is mature enough to watch it, I'd suggest seeing it first. I'd give this a 6.7. Worth watching!
