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.

Goofs

There is stock footage of San Francisco playing to transition to a morning scene half way though the movie. One scene is a 'sunrise' of the bay bridge. The stock footage is a sunset, rather than sunrise because the sun is setting in the west and not rising in the east of San Francisco. See more »

Quotes

Jexi: Ha. Ha. Ha.
Phil: Are you laughing at my dick right now?
Jexi: Yes. And your nipples are too close together.

User Reviews

 
Rose Byrne is hilarious as Jexi.
21 June 2020 | by ThomDerdSee all my reviews

Hey to all the ones who want to see something fun and laugh. The main actor Adam Levine is just full of energy and this is a funny film to watch, especially if you are into raunchy humor and films which do not take itselves seriously. The story is contemporary and the addition of Rose Byrne as the voice of AI Jexi is one of the funniest characters voiced . Don't look for script holes and mistakes or for a big meaning in every words of the characters. Just take it for what it is; a funny tech-comedy which will entertain you. This film is actually a tad smarter (just a tad) than you would expect and does present a kind of "problem" for overusing and over-trusting modern tech and smartphones... 8/10.
