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.

a few laughs here and there
1 June 2020 | by ilovemovies2016See all my reviews

Felt like this movie was missing to much like this is mostly a teen movie not really for adults. I'd say no diffrence in any other teen movie to be honest yet still found myself laughing here and there. But nowhere as much as i though i would if your a young adult or a teenager id recommend this movie but its the same teen film love story as all the others. Though this film has an amazing cast it kind of fell flat on its face for me worth it kind off for a few laughs as its free on amazon prime. I would not pay to rent this movie and also a movie about a mobile phone should have had more of a powerful message than it did. Plus side acting was great some of the punchlines and jokes hit the spot so i'd give it.

6/10 i'd recommend if ur into teenage jokes
