All I really know is I did not like Jexi, and it's hard for me to imagine many other people will.

Adam Devine is more enjoyable in small doses - like supporting roles and not leading the charge. Michael Pena, we feel your pain. Come back, all is forgiven - this, Dora, everything!

Spends its time doing all of the tedious, schlocky things that romcoms do, only it does them with a laborious "extremely online" twist.

If you want to make a movie with some regressive, oft-repeated views on technology, at least commit to the bit. Otherwise, don't bother.

Buyer beware: smartphones are bad for you. That's the eat-your-veggies premise of the promising but poorly programmed Jexi, a charming, laugh-challenged paranoid comedy about toxic technology and AI sociopathy.

This is an average comedy about a smart (aleck) phone.

Jexi never quite hits comedy gold and is probably better suited for a streaming release, but it's inventive, funny, and enjoyable enough to mildly recommend.

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...

Underwhelming raunchy comedy has tons of language, sex talk.

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.

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 14, 2019
Feel free to swipe left on this thinly sketched comedy that delivers a predictable barrage of gross-out gags and raunchy slapstick.
October 13, 2019
Jexi is an annoying, frustratingly unfunny misfire, with one of the weakest scripts of the year, and a moral that gets lost along the way.
October 13, 2019
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 12, 2019
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.
October 11, 2019
You would assume that Joker would've been the Hangover-related release of 2019 geared towards incels, but nah. That title belongs to this derivative, unfunny, lifeless comedy.
October 11, 2019
Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have figured out how to modernize one of the most traditional and apparently still essential Hollywood tropes: the Crazy Bitch.
October 11, 2019
Jexi may have worked as a funny short film but repeatedly using the same jokes result in a lukewarm underwhelming experience.
October 11, 2019
The smartphone epidemic is certainly fair game for satire, but while Jexi pokes fun at Phil, it ultimately isn't satirizing anything in particular because Phil is not much of anything in particular.

Might have been more at home on Netflix, where Adam Devine is only a screen prompt away from "back to menu" banishment.
