With a premise as thin as the smartphone at its center, Jexi is a Her with nothing to say except slew of sexual references.
Adam Devine stars as a tech-obsessed San Francisco Buzzfeed-ish writer whose latest device’s Siri thing (Jexi, as stilted-voiced by Rose Byrne) has developed a mind of its own. And it loves desperately crass zingers! Constantly mocking Devine for what a loser he is, she gets him out of his shell and somehow into a relationship with Alexandra Shipp—but Jexi starts getting possessive.
If we can get a sequel about a sentient smartfridge voiced by Louie Anderson, it will all be worth it when this hits theaters October 11.
