        Storyline

        Phil has a major dependency issue - he's addicted to his phone. He has no friends, he has a job writing pop culture "Top 10" lists, and his love life is non-existent. But his Facebook status is about to change. When he is forced to upgrade his phone, the latest model comes with an unexpected feature...Jexi - an A.I. life coach, virtual assistant and cheerleader. With her help, Phil begins to get a real life. But as he becomes less dependent on his phone, Jexi's artificial intelligence morphs into a tech nightmare determined to keep Phil all to herself, even if it means ruining his chances of finding success.

        This script's OS needs an update
        11 October 2019 | by DrewzQuickReviewzSee all my reviews

        This one would have done better as a YouTube short. You can feel the film making feeble attempts to extend itself to feature length while reaching for a plot that's just barely there. The protagonist isn't very likable (despite Adam Devine's efforts) and his love interest hardly even registers as a character (although she's played by the charming Alexandra Shipp). The humor is often very obvious and tiresome and the film, a comedy, only ever achieves a handful of chuckles. It even tries to have a message and while the idea of putting the phone down and really experiencing life and true human connection is interesting it's fumbled in "Jexi"'s clumsy hands (for a far better exploration of this theme, see Spike Jonze's "Her"). Adam Devine is funny, "Workaholics" is proof of that, but he needs a better script (it's pretty bad) than this.
