The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user.
Animated Adventure Comedy - Based on the popular phone texting graphics, this animated
adventure/comedy is aimed at the whole family, and most parents will
find this safe viewing for all kids, even with some very mild toilet
humor that gives the film its PG rating. T.J. Miller, James Corden,
and Anna Faris voice the lead roles, with other notables such as Maya
Rudolph, Patrick Stewart, and Sofia Vergara voicing smaller
Roger EbertFull Review Very Poor ...a work so completely devoid of wit, style, intelligence or basic entertainment value that it makes that movie based on the Angry Birds app seem like a pure artistic statement by comparison.This is a film that has literally nothing to offer viewers—there are no moments of humor, excitement or insight...
NY PostFull Review Terrible Please restore my eyes to factory settings.
They have seen "The Emoji Movie,” a new exercise in soulless branding, aimed primarily at little kids. But where another product-focused flick, "The Lego Movie,” had cleverness and heart, this thing is a piece of app.
Rolling StoneFull Review Average But The Emoji Movie, expected to kill at the box-office and be killed by critics, has a few tricks up its animated sleeve. Before the jacked-up antics get to be too much, director Tony Leondis and co-writers Erich Siegel and Mike White get in a few satiric licks at a technology we've all come to call home.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 42 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: All the kids loved it. Our 9 year-old granddaughter wanted to stay and see it again so it must have been good.
TEENS: One male loved it and one enjoyed it very much. The lone female loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male enjoyed it very much as did one of the four ladies. The remaining three loved it, which is certainly higher than what the professional critics rated it.
ADULTS: Two of the three males loved it and one rated it "average," which is quite good for this kids movie. The female reviews are fairly good, but certainly not great. Only two of the eight loved it. Two more enjoyed it very much, but four (half) felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
