From the time he gets up in the morning until the minute his head hits the pillow at night, every waking moment is made possible by his mobile device. When he is forced to buy a new phone, the latest model comes with a digital assistant named Jexi. At first, his new artificially intelligent friend is helpful and solicitous, challenging Phil to change his life for the better, whether it be asking for a promotion at work or pursuing the girl of his dreams. But as Phil becomes more independent, Jexi turns from helpful to hostile...and suddenly Phil is confronted with a trash-talking tech nightmare who has very specific ideas about what constitutes a service contract

    I'd say Adam Devine's 15 minutes have been up for awhile now.

    I don't this box office has anything to do with his appeal and more the fact this movie looks like shit and got shitty reviews to match.

    I'm referring more to the terrible movies he's been in recently.

    When We First Met, Isn't it Romantic, Game Over, Man!, and now this one movie have all been pretty damn bad.

    I’ve never really bought him as a leading man who can carry a whole movie, just not sure what it is about him. If there was nothing else in the cinema I’d consider watching this but not with other options available.

    Yeah I dig him on Workaholics just sort of typecast into that role for me. Similar to Glenn Howerton as Dennis on It's Always Sunny.

    I think that’s probably it to be honest. I didn’t mind him in Game Over, Man and I wouldn’t say that he was the problem with that movie. Glenn Howerton is a good shout for someone in the same mould - I love It’s Always Sunny but not sure I’d enjoy a movie where he plays the main or title character.
