Jexi

She had him at “hello”.


Jexi
A young man 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, he 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 him all to herself, even if it means ruining his chances of finding success.

CommentsThe film is an entertaining comedy and tells the story of a cell phone software that control a guy's life to make his life better, but “she” falls in love with him and nearly wrecks his life. The themes are mature and complex and of an adult nature, which could be distressing and morally misleading to children.

Tomatometer quote iconIt’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.
