Did You Know?
- The movie was filmed under the working title, "The Phone."
- There is stock footage of San Francisco playing to transition to a morning scene half way though the movie. One scene is a 'sunrise' of the bay bridge. The stock footage is a sunset, rather than sunrise because the sun is setting in the west and not rising in the east of San Francisco.
- Jexi: I am the captain now.

If the subreddits r/phonebad and r/boomershumor made a movie ironically but unironically.
Brings up issues that are very real in our society today in a way that you can laugh about. Some unnecessary nudity though.
Nearly everything misfires here — bizarrely so, since we can see where the laughs should come, how they would work, and how a more competent movie would get from A to Z. (To be fair, some jokes do land, just not as satisfyingly as you'd hope.)
Although this wasteful effort from the “Bad Moms” team is uninspired in almost every regard, it does advance cinema in a single way: writers-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have figured out how to modernize one of the most traditional and apparently still essential Hollywood tropes: the Crazy Bitch.
It would be easier to buy Jexi’s more intentional absurdities if its reality wasn’t so elastic, stretching to accommodate poorly staged large-scale slapstick.
