In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
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.
Good Track List
Overuse of Cursing
Some Inappropriate moments too inappropriate For Me
Spoiled By Trailers at parts
Jexi turned out to be better balanced and fun than I imagined, delivering a cute film that was both funny and touching at the same time. I'll admit it's merely a true entertaining festival, with fast pace, fun dialogue, and cute gimmicks that will entertain the masses. Throw in a fun soundtrack to sort of add to comedy elements and toe tapping nature, and again you are having fun in this film. Yet the movie still suffers from the usual tricks of the trade and that is overuse of cursing and inappropriate montages that just aren't my cup of tea. Throw in that that the story is still predictable and the funny parts have some ruining by the trailers and well you get the usual comedy formula for fun and laughs. Jexi is a fun adventure, and one I hope most will go for this weekend if looking for a good laugh. Still, it does not have quite the balance or uniqueness to require a theater visit and most likely best waited for your viewing at home.
My Scores are:
Movie Overall: 5.0
