Phil has a major dependency issue - he's addicted to his phone. He has no friends, he has a job writing pop culture "Top 10" lists, and his love life is non-existent. But his Facebook status is about to change. When he is forced to upgrade his phone, the latest model comes with an unexpected feature...Jexi - an A.I. life coach, virtual assistant and cheerleader. With her help, Phil begins to get a real life. But as he becomes less dependent on his phone, Jexi's artificial intelligence morphs into a tech nightmare determined to keep Phil all to herself, even if it means ruining his chances of finding success.

User Reviews

Not terrible movie but could be bettre with more details
3 January 2020 | by rohanbhattSee all my reviews

The movie has some good line of thinking but the plot and screen play is worst that one can imagine. It could be better if it as a different time scenario but as you watch further and further, the movie seams like you just had stepped into a parallel universe as it has non real happenings and situations "Normal life dose not work like this".
