The critics are hating on the Emoji Movie, like real bad and… wow. But, then again, what can you expect when you’re making a movie based on emojis?
If one were to englobe all the reviews this movie is getting (22 at the time this article was being written) in one emoji, it would be the poop one, and believe me, that would be better than the actual words the critic is using for this movie, with words like “unfunny,” “waste of time,” “a very, very dumb thing”, “cheap target for abuse” and “crappy.”
“Between Poop and Gene Meh, the characters’ names provide a more succinct and effective Emoji Movie review than I ever could,” is what Matt Singer in ScreenCrush’s review had to say about it, to name one of the critics.
Some of the headlines for the reviews of this movie are even worse, with phrases like “We’re gonna need a bigger poop emoji”, “The Emoji Movie is Inside Out crossed with a Sony commercial and dunked in toxic ooze”, “The Emoji Movie will send you into a spiral emoji of despair”, “The Emoji Movie’ Is Almost as Bad and Brutally Depressing as Everything Else in 2017”, and, the one that basically says everything we already knew, “Do not see The Emoji Movie”.
Rotten Tomatoes, the famous website where one can see the consensus of reviews a movie is getting, has the movie as Rotten, with a 0% in their “Tomatometer”, an average rating of 2.2 out of 10 (2.2/10) and a 58% of want to see.
This is sad because, because even though we all knew, and saw this coming, that an emoji movie was a bad idea since the beginning, it’s still bad for those who are involved in it, like actors T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris and Patrick Stewart.
