It's Time To Express Yourself - The Emoji Movie Review & #Giveaway



Be the movie night hero and bring home the film that kids give two thumbs up to for the ultimate kid’s movie night! It’s time to express yourself when Sony Pictures Animation’s THE EMOJI MOVIE arrives for the first time on Digital on October 10 and on 4K Ultra HD+ Blu-ray + Digital, Blu-ray + Digital and DVD October 24 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  The animated comedy 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 (T.J. Miller), 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 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris). 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.


My Thoughts

My children have been dying for this movie to come out on DVD since we missed it in theaters. It was definitely worth the wait.  This adorable and hilarious film brings all our favorite emojis to life. In the movie, we discover that inside out cellphones there is a secret world where the emjojis sit and wait for their turn for a little screen time action. They live in a town called Textopolis, and life is pretty simple since everyone has only one expression. Then along comes Gene, a unique emoji who can make any expression. Gene doesn't like being different, so he gets a few friends to help him find the code that will make him normal. But something goes wrong and their whole world could be deleted.

This is a great film. I just loved how the they made each emoji into it's own character. It's fun how much personality each one had.  I'll never use an emoji again without thinking of them. I also enjoyed all the puns and memes. It's corny, but in a good way. I also love the positive message of excepting yourself the way you are. The story-line was unique and while it was a little predictable, it's definitely a fun movie to enjoy on family movie night. This is a film my children and I will watch again and again.
