Screener Squad: Jexi

Jexi Movie Review


The Screener Squad is playing catch up once again with this comedy that imagines what Spike Jonze’s Her would be like as a crass comedy. The story follows Phil (Adam DeVine), a lonely man who spends his time writing pop culture ‘Top 10’ lists and living in solitude. Things change, however, when he upgrades his phone with a new A.I. program named Jexi (Rose Bryne). Suddenly, Phil has the ultimate life coach, cheerleader, and sort of girlfriend. However, as the dynamics in their relationship are threatened, Jexi becomes more determined to keep Phil no matter what may happen. London and Max decided to bite the bullet with this poorly rated movie, but is it as bad as people said? Listen here to find out.


DIRECTED BY: Jon Lucas and Scott Moore

STARRING: Adam DeVine, Alexandra Shipp, Michael Pena, Rose Bryne, Justin Hartley, Ron Funches, Kid Cudi, Wanda Sykes
