(2020) (Melissa McCarthy, James Corden) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A woman is forced to try to rekindle a romance with her ex-boyfriend by AI programming that's become sentient and will determine humankind's future based on studying her.
At one point, Carol Peters (MELISSA McCARTHY) was a rising star in the online world, but then her relationship with her boyfriend, George Churchill (BOBBY CANNAVALE), ended and now she's been drifting from one non-profit job to another. Her programmer friend, Dennis Caruso (BRIAN TYREE HENRY), tries to help her by getting her job interviews with start-ups, but none of that has worked out. Her life changes, however, when some AI programming becomes sentient, names itself Super Intelligence, and decides to use Carol as its litmus test about humans.
Presenting itself to her via any connected electronic devices as the voice and occasional video image of James Corden (JAMES CORDEN), Super Intelligence informs Carol that based on its study of her, it will either save mankind, enslave humanity to save it from itself, or destroy all of humankind to start over.
Carol is surprised even more when she learns that Super Intelligence will base his decision on trying to get Carol and George back together as a couple. From that point on, and after confiding in Dennis who goes to the Feds to inform them, she follows Super Intelligence's orders and has her feelings for George rekindled despite him leaving for a new job in Ireland in just a few days.
