What the Critics say
Bashiera Parker All in all, this was a below-average film, and while there may have been some sort of message in there about how we’ve become a tech-obsessed society, ironically, I would much rather have had my weekly report say I upped my screen time for the day by 1 hour and 24 minutes because Jexi could do with several bug fixes and improvements – perhaps a full software update.
Leon van Nierop Adam Devine se spel red die bietjie wat daar te redde is, maar dis 90 minute wat ek nooit weer sal terugkry nie.
Tomatometer 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.
Sandie Angulo Chen Underwhelming raunchy comedy has tons of language, sex talk.
