Emoji Movie the per­fect hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

WITH school hol­i­days com­ing up, treat the fam­ily to Sony’s lat­est kids flick, The Emoji Movie, at the Bowen Sum­mer­gar­den cinema.

Hid­den within the pop­u­lar smart phone mes­sag­ing app of ‘Emoji’ is Tex­topo­lis, a bustling city where all your favourite 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.

Dubbed as en­ter­tain­ing for adults and kids alike, The Emoji Movie is all fun.

You won’t be able to look away as the story ex­plores be­ing your­self and han­dling emo­tions.

Hap­pi­ness, sad­ness, nerve – the whole nine yards; if you loved ‘In­side Out’ then

this is the film for you.

Well an­i­mated and fam­ily friendly, the movie de­liv­ers a pow­er­ful mes­sage while burst­ing with laughs.

It’s time to switch off your brain, scoff pop­corn and leave with a happy pos­i­tive out­look on life.
