Jexi | 2019 | R | – 7.3.10

content-ratingsWhy is “Jexi” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “strong/crude sexual content and language throughout, some drug use and graphic nudity.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes several sex scenes including a couple between a phone and a human, a few kissing scenes, many discussions of pornography, and male full frontal nudity and several cleavage revealing outfits; a thrown punch, several threats of violence, some kickball field injuries, and yelling and arguments; and some drug and alcohol use, and more than 50 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


A man (Adam Devine) leading an isolated and lonely existence buys a new phone that takes over his life — presumably to make it better — and shows him that he can have social interactions and lead an interesting and fulfilled life but with some uncomfortable obstacles along the way. Also with Alexandra Shipp, Ron Funches, Charlyne Yi, Michael Peña, Wanda Sykes, Kid Cudi, Justin Hartley and the voice of Rose Byrne. Directed by Jon Lucas & Scott Moore. [Running Time: 1:24]

A man plugs and unplugs a cellphone (simulating sexual thrusting) and the voice on the phone moans sexually and we see images of fireworks and the word “Orgasm” on the screen. A woman licks her cellphone screen with a picture of a man’s genitals on it (we do not see the picture). A phone plays pornographic material and we hear moaning and slapping (we do not see anything) as the phone’s voice describes different types of pornography.

A phone speaks to a man in a sexually suggestive manner and says, “Swipe me” in a sexual manner. A phone makes several references to pornography. A man makes several comments about homosexuality and sodomy when awkwardly trying to flirt with a woman on a date. A man talks about not having had sex in a long time. A phone teases a man for looking at pictures of a woman on the internet and tells him, “She is hotter than you,” along with other disparaging remarks. A phone laughs at a man’s physical appearance in a few scenes. A man says that he is going to send a photo of his genitals to a woman (he does not). A woman tells a man that his calling her late at night is super creepy and that looking at pictures of her online is even creepier. A man becomes jealous when his girlfriend’s ex-fiancé shows up and says that he is going to win her back.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
