The Emoji Movie-Kids Movie Review

A text can show a lot of emotions, especially with the right emoji. Happy, sad, frustrated, confused;  emoji’s express the way a person feels.  The Emoji Movie is a story about a world inside our smartphones. Each emoji is supposed to have one job or a certain expression. When the Meh symbol is pressed, Gene Meh, a young emoji, messes up and shows more than one expression. Now mayhem ensues in the world of emoji’s, and the adorable symbols try to handle the chaos while hoping they don’t get deleted.

  • A character mentions, “Hack Daniels.”
