Storyline

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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

This was Maya Rudolph's second Sony Animation film, after The Angry Birds Movie (2016). Both of Rudolph's characters are calm women who try their best never to get angry. However, the only difference (other than Matilda being a bird) is that Smiler is a villain. See more »

Goofs

The Emojis go through other apps in order to get to Dropbox, but it would be much quicker and easier to just walk around the apps. They are being chased by the bots, so it's safer to go through the apps. See more »

Quotes

Jailbreak: [to Gene] I think you're cool just the way you are.

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There is a scene before the closing rolling credits: Smiler is stuck in the loser lounge, wearing braces and losing a game of cards. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Terrible Film!
11 May 2019 | by athaggardSee all my reviews

I hate this movie so much! It wasted such perfectly good voice actors, and it was a waste of product placement! Man, it ripped off Wreck-it Ralph, The Lego Movie, and Inside Out! The jokes are just stupid! Sure, the animation was fine and all, but still!
