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. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression - except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

While most emojis depicted in the film are part of the set standardized by Unicode, e.g. the Toaster, the Broom and the Disco Ball are not as of mid-2017. The Fortune Cookie and the Takeout Box emojis appear, although they had only been officially added to the Unicode Standard in June 2017, a month prior to the release date of the movie, and thus were not available on phones yet.

At least It's Not Terrible
28 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Emoji Movie is not good, but it wasn't the worst. The animation is energetic and colorful and some of the characters stand out from each other such as the villain or Gene's parents. But then again, it suffers from a predictable plot, uninteresting characters, and weak comedy. At best I think I got 4 chuckles from this film. The Emoji Movie thankfully wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, so congratulations Sony. This movie is simply meh.
