People paid real money for this....
★★★★
Let that sink in. People sent hard earned money on this. People spent time to watch this. I'd rather stare at paint. I'd get more amusement. — time to come home

I can’t believe I’m saying this...
★★★★
Ok so it isn’t the best but compared to other movies it’s good. And I’m really surprised I’m saying this but please make a sequel. — Nickt@stic

Sony: WHAT are you doing? In just one movie, you ripped off Apple, Candy Crush, AND Just Dance, you ruined James Corden, you assumed a reality that this movie was a good enough movie to make and watch, and you made a movie that was more feminist than your Smurf movie! And where is Popeye? That movie would have been better than this one! You will be lucky if anyone wants to use emojis for anything again! Teenage Sony employee translation: 😒😒😒😔👿👿💀🤢🤢🤢💀💀☠️💩💩💩💩💩💩👿👿👿👿👹😾😾😾👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻💔🖤🖤🖤😡😡😡 P.S. And every one who has watched this movie, let alone PAID for it, I know your pain! So give me the worst ratings on this movie ever! Thanks. — Trobled Soul

Emoji Movie=Piece of 💩
★★★★
Good job Emoji Movie. What Next, the Fidget Spinner Movie? They also ruined the chance for a decent Popeye Movie. To the people who watched this, I pray to God that your ears and your eyes don't bleed. My rating: 💩💩💩💩💩 out of 5 crap emojis for this horrid mess that Sony made. — JustABoy21

Pretty bad

😂😂😂Cute kid film. This I really enjoyed! A little too intense at times since it is a kid’s film there is No need for villain’s. Cute song and dance sequences teaching words and definitions should replace villain’s sequences. — White Dragon3

what? 🤢🤮
★★★★
Watched part of it, cringe! It’s a literal knockoff of like what, Inside Out? Horrible. I get the plot but... just no. — bbimna

Awful
★★★★
The movie was SO SLOW that I JUST WANTED TO SEE THE ENDING. Most of the movie was spent with them trying to find the CLOUD. What I’m saying is, most of the movie was spent outside their app which is the text app. Then they decide to go find high five which took even LONGER. SO BORING. Sony can do better than this. — ???$?;//?’;)

So cringe
★★★★
This is so garbage I honestly hate it — jadenloritts

Bad and unoriginal
★★★★
It’s basically ripping off wreck it Ralph witch is one of my favorite movies and the plot is SO bad I mean it’s a bout a emoji in phone it couldn’t be pointless enough already, also the jokes are bad and corny so it’s basically it felt like watching one huge ad To sum it all up twilight is better than this (P.s the because the killed the poop emoji would u like to come to its funeral?) — lol-lol123

Trash.
★★★★
This is literally the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life. And probably will be until I die, I didn’t make it 5 minutes into the beginning. “Hi I’m a meh emoj-“ ‘Ok! I’m done!’ — #greg is awesome

Don’t watch it
★★★★
The jokes weren’t even funny, the animation was bad, and people don’t give 2 f**** about emojis as much as these people do. Do not waste your money on this garbage. — Square Go #1 Fan

4.2/10-Disappointment at it’s best
★★★★★
I was very disappointed by the story. In fact, it’s just about the same as Fallout 3: blow up Boston or save your darn son. Also, if you haven’t noticed, the choices are so dumbed down it’s almost as if they took the entire New Testament of the Bible and replaced it with a Cross emoji. Not really a lot of choices for an "RPG". I put that in quotations because it ISN’T an RPG. To put it simply, you’re a distressed parent. That’s not ROLE playing. I will say though, the gunplay is smooth and the open world does look nice. Unfortunately, for a game that supposedly took 7 years to make, it looks like garbage. There was major potential, but it was wasted. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend it. I’m guessing that Bethesda took some time off to love themselves after the success that was Skyrim. Then, they realized that they only had a couple weeks left and quickly put this together. It might be worth it if you can get it on sale, but until then, stay away. — This is a 🤖😼

Amazing
★★★★★
Best movie I ever saw 101% (jk) — pussyslayerxxx69

It could of been better
★★★★★
Decent movie. It isn’t like so great, but not so bad. The plot is unoriginal, it’s like an Inside Out, Cloudy of a Chance of Meatballs, and Wreck It Ralph mixture, and with unoriginal characters. Characters like: The protagonist(Movies typically have one, so I don’t mind that), the chick, and the fat/muscular dumb or goofy sidekick. This movie contained all these characters, so the movie isn’t very exciting, just a stale idea to use, because the creators were rushing to make a few quick bucks. Also this contains that happy and all “yay everything is better than before :D” ending. This ending is used very often, and it’s very annoying. I don’t hate the movie though, it’s probably good for little kids who is into their modern generation. Like one of those five year olds who use their mom’s iPad mini or something to play games like Fruit Ninja. I only rented this movie to see how bad it is, and it’s not as bad as people complained in my opinion. Just wish this movie was more thought out. I wish they didn’t cancel making that Popeye movie, I would of looked more forward to that movie instead. — Mel🐾

So bad
★★★★
Horrible — ofwgktawhatitdoskieee

Not the worst, but incredibly awful
★★★★
I watched this movie with my family to just see how bad it is. I think 0% is a stretch. But this movie is really bad. The jokes and many sentences are REALLY cringe worthy. I’d put my money on something much better than this — Lillys39

Yyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssss!!!!!!!!!! I thought this movie was SO funny. I loved the plot twist! It’s so surprising when you see a princess turn into a rebel! — ZacFan23

Don’t watch it
★★★★
I regret watching this movie in theather. The jokes are crappy, they are just stealing alot of stuff from other movie plots. Don’t buy it or watch this crappy move. — Locus117

This movie is better than...... nvm it’s just a bad movie — Quacked Duck

It's bad.
★★★★
It was bad. — FriendshipFan1996

Tried too hard
★★★★
This... really wasn't all that great. It kind of smacked you over the head with "emoji culture" while at the same time not apparently being aware of how people use actual emojis. None of the characters were all that memorable or likeable except the Meh parents. I get that female empowerment is important, but it kept being thrown at the audience to the point it was annoying while at the end of the day it was cast aside anyway. Glad I waited until it was on a .99 cent rental fee to actually watch it, but even then I think I should have waited until it was on Netflix. — NiaDC

I have seen the face of God...
★★★★★
And his name is Meh Emoji. This is a bound forward for all of cinema. Forget everything you think you know about movies, than experience the captivating piece of art known as “The Emoji Movie”. This movie saved my life, and it’ll save yours too. — Green day rocks113

Bad Bad Bad Bad Bad
★★★★
Emoji movie is bad, but not just your typical bad. It made me cringe so bad, that I didn’t even watch it after 10 minutes of this 💩. Plus, it embraces phone culture within 2 minutes after making fun of teens w/ phones. Those jokes were actually OFFENSIVE to teenagers. Not all of them are phone-addicted drones, so stop making it seem like they can’t live w/o their phone!! Wake up Sony!! Seriously!!! 😡 — Emlad03

See...
★★★★
It already LOOKS like everything that every movie has done. Just, on an analytical point of view, all of the plot, the concept, the characters, it has been overused. The jokes are not funny. Plus, emojis?? Was THIS the “brilliant” idea the executives had? Sorry, but it’s just a large assortment of overused cliches and cringeworthy characters. — Tadelael

I like it

SHAME on Apple/iTunes: "Top Rated" movie?
★★★★
If this movie doesn't prove that Apple/iTunes and other distribution outlets are getting PAID to promote trash music/films/apps/media... I don't know what else will. Apple has been pushing this horrible movie ever since it was up for listing. They constantly promote it in banners, top-page placements, and use "Top Rated" to categorize it. ANYONE with eyes can clearly see the crital ratings as well as customer ratings have this being one of the worst movies of all time, and certainly the worst of the year. Yet it's still being promoted by Apple as "Top Rated"??? Really? — Sibelius-DLG

This movie was the definition of mediocre do not buy
★★★★★
I thought this movie had too many sponsors and it ruined the movie. The songs where terrible as well as the moral message. Because if you get rejected to do not not reject the same person — Fredlamp
