Kid movie re­viewer gives ‘The Emoji Movie’ 2 pop­corn boxes

The Southern Berks News - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Rodeo Marie Han­son Colum­nist

“The Emoji Movie” had a very thin plot and more than one story. It doesn’t un­fold smoothly and this movie isn’t what I thought it was go­ing to be from the trailer and poster. There are a cou­ple of laughs through­out the movie, which is some­thing good.

This is why I only give the Emoji Movie 2 pop­corn boxes. (4 out of 4 boxes of pop­corn is A+, 3 out of 4 boxes of pop­corn is B, 2 out of 4 boxes of pop­corn is C, 1 out of 4 boxes of pop­corn is D.)

Star­ring T.J. Miller, James Cor­den, and Anna Faris, “The Emoji Movie” is rated PG and runs 1 hour and 26 min­utes.

The Emoji Movie is an an­i­mated fea­ture that tells the story of “Gene,” an emoji who suf­fers a mal­func­tion in the form of mul­ti­ple emo­tions. Not fit­ting the rule of one emo­tion per emoji, and in an ef­fort to con­form, Gene must travel to the cloud to fix his mal­func­tion. With the as­sis­tance of fel­low emo­jies, Gene nav­i­gates apps, video games, and You Tube to reach his goal. In the process, he learns the im­por­tance of friend­ship and how to em­brace his unique qual­i­ties.
