What happens when you love your phone more than anything else?
We have all come to know and love Adam Devine for his witty, goofy charm and his performance in the upcoming ‘Jexi’ reminds us why he is THE go-to when in need of a laugh. ‘Jexi’ which will be coming to cinemas on 22 November, is an American romantic comedy about a millennial that is addicted to his phone. What could possibly go wrong with this very relevant, present age obsession?
We’re introduced to Phil (Adam Devine); a single, twenty-something year old who has a major dependency issue and is addicted to his cell phone – pretty much the norm for most connected young adults. To his detriment, he has no real friends and has not yet been able to establish himself within the journalism workforce and finds himself grasping at straws writing ridiculous pop culture "Top 10" lists.
When Phil breaks his phone however, he is forced to get an upgrade which comes with an unusual and unexpected feature... Jexi (Rose Byrne) an Artificially Intelligent (AI) life coach, virtual assistant and cheerleader. Through her unconventional help, Phil begins to ‘get a life’ and becomes less and less dependent on his phone.
As the plot unfolds, we see Jexi transform into a technological nightmare as ‘she’ orchestrates a series of outrageous ploys determined to keep Phil all to ‘herself’ - even if it means ruining his chances of finding success in any area of his life.
This film stars an A-List cast of comedy actors including Adam Devine, Alexandra Shipp, Rose Byrne, Michael Pena and Wanda Sykes, that will keep you in hysterics throughout.
