This movie 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, 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, 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.Written by

Not counting follow-ups this is the seventh film to use character cameos (in this case with emoji, app, and other phone related character cameos), after Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) (cartoon character cameos), Toy Story (1995) (toy cameos), Shrek (2001) (fairy tale character cameos), Ice Age (2002) (prehistoric animal cameos), Wreck it Ralph (2012) (video game character cameos), and The Lego Movie (2014) (lego character cameos).

Jailbreak uses her Princess powers to summon the Twitter logo to be able to fly herself and High Five to Gene's location and rescue him. Why didn't she summon the logo earlier? It would have been far more convenient for them instead of walking through the numerous dangerous apps while being chased by Anti-Virus bots. See more »

For its UK release, Sony had to remove some mild language in order to receive an U rating instead of a PG - this included a visual use of "WTF" (considered 'disguised strong language' and worthy of a 12A) and a verbal use of "turd". See more »
This film rips off Wreck It Ralph, Inside Out, and The Lego Movie. The story was boring, the jokes were unfunny, HI-5 was more annoying and obnoxious than funny, and it portrays teens as phone addicts who can't go 5 seconds without their phones, even in class. While I may also be a teen who spends a lot of her time online, I get off when I need to. The animation is good, but good animation cannot save a bad film from being bad.
"Oh, but Galán, you're just not part of the film's target audience!"
I know that, but I'm also not part of the target audience for the films it rips off (Well I was when they came out) and I still enjoy them. Sony cancelled the Popeye movie for this, and the Popeye movie looked like it had more effort put into it, it looked more promising. I luckily didn't have to pay to see it, but to the fellows who rated 1 star and had to pay, I'm sorry.
So the only things I liked were the animation, and that the teens looked like actual teens rather than twenty-something year olds (while they cast adults to play teens in live-action teen movies, I've seen some animation where the teens still look like adults).
