Amazon Prime Video Jexi Movie Review

Do you need a movie to disconnect for a while from the endless and absurd debate of “6 or 10 at Christmas dinner”? Amazon Prime Video premieres the film Jexi, one of his own productions that guarantees 84 minutes of disconnection from so much repetitive and pandemic reality. You sure need them.

Are you addicted to mobile?

Are you addicted to mobile? The first step is to recognize it. The jexi movie It’s the new hooligan starring the moonlighting Adam Devine. Your character, PhilHe’s a completely mobile-addicted guy who prefers to lock himself at home watching Instagram to gossip with his ex and watch a movie on his device, than to meet friends to carry out any kind of plan. Settled in his monotonous and lonely life, his entire universe revolves around his mobile device, now his only friend and best company.

His addiction, as a curse, will be broken for two reasons: the accidental irruption into his life of a girl named Cate (Alexandra Shipp); and the arrival of a new mobile with its corresponding intelligent assistant included, jexic (whose voice corresponds to Rose Byrne).

From the scriptwriters of ‘The Hangover’

The scriptwriters of the mythical ‘Hangover in Las Vegas‘, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, write and direct this romantic comedy, which although it is not as brilliant as its iconic proposal, it is entertaining and ensures a laugh due to the crazy and ingenious love-hate relationship that will originate between Phil and jexic -a Siri with a life of its own. And is that you could get to go out with your virtual assistant? In this peculiar case, yes. jexic will end up becoming a fanatical and jealous virtual girlfriend who controls any aspect of the life of Phil, because “he has it grabbed by the mobile.”

A topical satire

Jon Lucas and Scott Moore they pose a satire on today’s society’s dependence on new technologies, from the typical romantic comedy premise.

Our entertainment, social relationships, our daily schedule depend on this technology, it saves our memories, it is our virtual map to get to places, and our clock to know the time, among many other things. Who has not literally died when their mobile phone has been stolen or lost?

This dependence, which many people have already taken to the extreme, is what prevents the protagonist of the jexi movie establish any type of relationship outside the virtual environment. A safe and comfortable environment from which you are not willing to leave, unless you are “pushed” … and that is what jexic.

The cast of the movie

One of the main successes of the film is the chemistry that is generated between the characters of Phil, interpreted by Adam Devine always ready to give his all in comedy, and that of jexic, whose voice belongs to the sparkling and sour Rose Byrne. The relationship between the two works like clockwork; as unhinged as it is addictive.

Unfortunately we cannot say the same about the relationship that arises between the characters of Phil and Cate, played by a bland Alexandra Shipp. The lack of chemistry between Devine and the one that his love “of flesh and blood” is presupposed, is evident throughout the footage.

Final opinion of Amazon Prime Video’s Jexi movie

The jexi movie It is a good proposal to have a fun time and without more pretensions. And be careful, if you recognize yourself at some point in the footage as the character of Phil is that you have a problem, maybe you need a Jexi in your life.
