QUICK TAKE:
Animated Comedy: A multi-expressional emoji who's been targeted for deletion embarks on a journey to become a normal emoji and finds his true self.
PLOT:
Inside the cell phone of a teenage boy named Alex (voice of JAKE T. AUSTIN) exists Textopolis, a society populated by walking, talking emojis who live to be scanned and placed in Alex's texts, e-mails, and other communications. Most emojis have a single emotion and purpose, but not Gene (voice of T.J. MILLER). He was born to Mel Meh (voice of STEVEN WRIGHT) and Mary Meh (voice of JENNIFER COOLIDGE), but he is far from being a humdrum, monotone "Meh." He can summon multiple emotions.

He is soon branded a malfunction and a pariah by the leader of Textopolis, Smiler (voice of MAYA RUDOLPH), who orders him to be hunted down and permanently deleted by her killer robots. Gene decides to run away with the Hi-5 emoji (voice of JAMES CORDEN), who Alex no longer uses in any of his texts or e-mails. They seek to find a hacker named Jailbreak (voice of ANNA FARIS) who is hiding somewhere on Alex's wallpaper filled with icons representing various apps.

Meanwhile, Alex tries to impress his dream girl at school, Addie (voice of TATI GABRIELLE), but his "defective" cell phone keeps getting in the way. It plays songs at weird times and activates old apps like Just Dance and Candy Crush when he doesn't want them. He decides he's going to take his phone to the store in the mall after school and wipe it clean, setting up a ticking clock for Textopolis' possible destruction.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens may be attracted to its action, PG rating, and appealing voice cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
