Critic Reviews of "The Emoji Movie"The New RepublicJuly 31, 2017
It would be hard to forgive The Emoji Movie its "meh" plotline and the fact that it is literally one giant ad for apps, but its most unforgivable sin is that it perpetuates the notion that emojis are childish.ReelViewsJuly 30, 2017
At its best, this seems like a second-rate version of Pixar's Inside Out. At its worst, it's a cash-grab based on a cynical high-level concept.Village VoiceJuly 28, 2017
The film is boldly bad, yes, but also boldly boring.Entertainment WeeklyJuly 28, 2017
There's a justifiable self-loathing running through The Emoji Movie, a fragile attempt to (sigh) deconstruct the meaning of Emojis while also (sigh) demonstrating the profound possibility that Emojis are the language of the future.Time OutJuly 28, 2017
Disregard that PG rating and keep your children far away from director Tony Leondis' vile animated faux-comedy. Beneath its trippy surface lurks an insidious philosophy hazardous to impressionable minds.RogerEbert.comJuly 28, 2017
A demonstration of artistic abdication at its most venal, but will the kids like it?GuardianAugust 04, 2017
This is just a boilerplate animation, zestless, pointless.NerdistAugust 03, 2017
Far be it from me to insist that a sincere Emoji Movie couldn't work, but just as inconsistent as the sci-fi is the emotionality.Radio TimesAugust 03, 2017
Sir Patrick Stewart, stalwart thespian and former captain of the Starship Enterprise, voices a poop emoji. Which sort of says it all, really.Daily Express (UK)August 03, 2017
Sad faces all around.Times (UK)August 03, 2017
Not only does this film hate its very subject matter, it's also the most hideous example of product placement in cinematic history.Salt Lake TribuneAugust 03, 2017
If The Emoji Movie were trying to be funny and missing, or even striving for so-bad-it's-entertaining territory, it wouldn't be as tediously awful as the wishy-washy product that it is.
