The Emoji Movie has hit the silver screens and the reviews of it are, well, interesting at best. Despite doing well in terms of box office ($34 million as of August 2), it has left the viewers confused, disappointed, and in deep doubt about the future of humanity. That’s right, folks – apparently, The Emoji Movie is really bad. ☹️ 👎💩

We haven’t seen it yet, and let’s be honest – we won’t actually see it, but we feel for all the movie critics who had no choice but to do their job and review the picture. We wouldn’t be surprised if many of them actually considered switching careers and taking jobs as baristas at local cafes where their work would be less stressful.

Kaitlyn Tiffany and Lizzie Plaugic of The Verge said, “The Emoji Movie is so bad, it made us yell at strangers on the street”, and that was just one of the many, many, many bad reviews of the movie. The title’s Rotten tomatoes rating is 6%, and the one on IMDB is 1.5 (we don’t think we’ve seen a number so low before). Ouch.

As it would appear, the storyline is super lame, the humor is too basic even for the most basic of people, the animations is just ok but nothing spectacular, and the soundtrack invokes the puke emoji. It seems that there is literally nothing that can save the movie

Our hearts go to T.J. Miller, Sofia Vergara, Sir Patrick Stewart and Anna Faris, who star are in the movie as voice over artist, as well as to the rest of the cast. We understand that all people make mistakes, and we still like them enough as actors.

As usual, we took it to Twitter to measure the pulse of the average viewer, and we selected for you some of the funniest tweets about Sony Pictures’ fiasco of a movie.
