AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It's hard to tell whether the lack of laughs in Jexi is a bug or a feature, but this AI rom-com is sorely in need of an OS update.

Movie Info

Phil (Adam Devine) 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 (Rose Byrne) -- 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.

Critic Reviews for Jexi

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

Workaholics' Adam DeVine and the disembodied voice of Rose Byrne are wonderfully puerile fun in this sweet but dirty-minded rom-com.

Surely, bland cultural insights can't defeat a film whose main attraction is the promise of stupid, raunchy fun? Reader, Jexi fails even at that...

October 14, 2019 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

The stranded DeVine, for all his goofy charms as an actor, quickly exhausts our patience; he's in nearly every frame of this movie, and his screen partner is a phone, which means a hell of a lot of mugging for the camera.

Top Critic

Lucas and Moore's film is filled with bugs, making it easy to unplug from its attempts to entertain and do literally anything else.

October 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Jexi feels hopelessly out of step with the moment. Despite its subject matter, it's a flip phone movie in a smart phone world.

October 13, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Lucas and Moore write some whiplash funny lines, and since the film is just a throwaway, you can enjoy it on a trivial synthetic revenge-of-the-nerd level.
