Jexi is a 2019 romantic comedy film written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. The film stars Adam DeVine, Alexandra Shipp, Michael Peña, Rose Byrne, Justin Hartley, Wanda Sykes, Ron Funches, and Charlyne Yi. The plot follows a self-aware smartphone with a female-voiced virtual assistant that becomes emotionally attached to its socially awkward owner.
Phil (Adam DeVine) becomes enamored with cell phones at an early age. He works for a BuzzFeed-style website run by Kai (Michael Peña), who pressures the staff to create inane listicles to go viral. Despite Phil’s degree in journalism, Kai refuses to promote him to the real news department.
