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.

Trivia

Because Rose Byrne recorded all her lines after filming, in order to have lines to react to, an earwig was placed inside Adam Devine's ear with a person saying Jexi's lines. However, sometimes the earpiece would malfunction. Co-Director Jon Lucas exclaimed that "there were times when Adam would just take the earbud out and do the whole scene without ever hearing anyone talking". See more »

Frustratingly Bad
11 October 2019 | by rhythmorientedSee all my reviews

There is something about Adam Devine that just tickles my funny bone. He was so funny in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and other ensemble comedies. That's probably what, unfortunately, makes it frustrating to see him stuck in such a poorly written film. Jexi starts off with a cute premise, lands a few laughs, but its downhill from there: some jokes fall short, while others are in-your-face and moronically over the top. Nothing quite works. I should have suspected that there was a reason it wasn't screened for critics. I hate to say it, but my recommendation is to pass this one up...even when it moves from the theater to streaming (which I'm sorry to say based on the reaction of people in the theater, and number in attendance, will probably be soon).
