There's no reason why this animated comedy adventure needed to be this pointless. Solidly entertaining movies have been made using far less as source material (see The Lego Movie). But while there are some hilarious verbal and visual gags peppered throughout this movie, it all hinges on a script that's painfully obvious and animation that simply isn't inventive enough to hold the attention without a decent story and stronger characters.
It's set in Textopolis, an app inside the smartphone of the teen Alex (Jake T. Austin). The central character is Gene (T.J. Miller), who has far too many expressions for a meh emoji. His parents (Jennifer Coolidge and Steven Wright) worry that he has some sort of defect. Threatened by the cruel senior emoji Smiler (Maya Rudolph), Gene and his pal Hi-5 (James Cordon) sneak out of the app in search of the hacker Jailbreak (Anna Faris), who can help reprogramme him if they can make it to the cloud. But Smiler sends a team of killer bots in hot pursuit.
Yes, the plot is cursory at best, and essentially exists only so the film can namecheck carefully placed apps in a series of sponsored, rather pointless extended set pieces. This leaves the movie feeling like a low-rent variation on Wreck-It Ralph, although only a few of these sequences have any visual interest. The Candy Crush world is at least a colourful alternative to the dull digital look of most of most of the movie. And the lack of imagination shows in the depiction of music streaming as a stream and a firewall as a wall of fire. There's also a strange rush to violence in almost every sequence, as the bots continually try to delete our heroes.

We use Emojis in text messages and social media everyday, but have you ever thought about what these images get up to when you put away your iPhone? When a high school boy goes to send his crush a 'Meh' emoji, it turns into something quite different. To the disappointment of his parents, Gene has never been quite as apathetic as he's expected to be, so when he messes up his moment it causes quite the problem for everyone else. Now the boy thinks his phone is broken, and he's on the way to get it re-set. That's not looking good for the emojis who find themselves desperately trying to back-up their world in the Cloud before their whole world gets wiped out. Meanwhile, Gene is about to learn that having more than one expression may not be such a bad thing after all.

Chris Pratt and wife Anna Faris prefer when he was ‘fat Pratt’
Colbert asked him: “I know you’re a big action star now and you’ve talked about getting in shape, but I kind of miss ‘Fat Pratt’. Do you miss him at all?” “Yes, I do,” Pratt responded. But it’s not just the actor who misses his old body, his wife Anna Faris feels the same.

Lawrence shot the scenes as part of her upcoming project 'Passengers', which is released in December 2016.
Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she had to get “really, really drunk” in order to marshal her nerves ahead of filming a sex scene with fellow Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt, because he’s a married man. She explained that the scene, for their upcoming movie Passengers, is the “most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”
“I got really, really drunk,” she revealed in a new feature with The Hollywood Reporter, but that didn’t end up solving the problem. “That led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don't know’.”

Having literally gone from rags to riches, Alvin, Simon and Theodore didn't think their lives could get any better - and they certainly didn't think it could all go downhill. Their best friend and father figure Dave has met a woman, and while the chipmunks are happy to have a new face in their lives, they're super worried it could mean the end for them. Dave is going to Miami to propose and is planning on leaving his furry friends at home in Los Angeles. But after a serious misunderstanding, the guys believe that they are going to be abandoned forever. And so, they set out follow Dave to the sunny city to stop the proposal and save their friendship with Dave - while gaining yet more fans with their spontaneous musical exhibitions along the way.
The couple has been taken completely by surprise by the rumours that Pratt has eyes for his 'Passengers' co-star Jennifer Lawrence.
Faris, who has been married to the Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy actor since July 2009, told Fox411 that the rumour “stung a little bit harder than I thought it would, I have always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true – because they had never been a part of my life. I thought, 'Maybe there is a kernel of truth to that.'”
