Storyline

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.

This movie made me write my first review.
4 January 2020 | by zhiargamingSee all my reviews

Some reviewers or critics might say we hate this movie because of the tech and the bad language i say they are prude and can't relate to the movie and understand it so they attack it, from my experience and point of view the movie was KING hilarious LOVED Jexi the AI how funny she was and the chemistry between her and the main character the the main character being a nerd not having a life can't talk to girls and Jexi the AI helping him through all that was amazing and funny i relate to this movie and i definitely recommend it was an amazing watch.
