the emoji movie

An emoji is worth a thousand words — at least, in “The Emoji Movie” it is. 

The new animated film released on Friday — with already terrible critical reviews — features Gene (T.J. Miller), a “meh” emoji who goes on an adventure in a teen’s phone.

Emojis from the ice cream cone to the flamenco dancer, and even the poop emoji are brought to life in the new film.

Gene is supposed to be a “meh” emoji, but he struggles to keep the proper expression.

He’s played by “Silicon Valley” star T.J. Miller.

Hi-5 is a hand emoji who becomes Gene’s friend and sidekick.
