The Emoji Movie has taken a critical bashing over the weekend, most reviewers making the same joke and rating the blockbuster animation one :poop-emoji: out of five.
Over on Rotten Tomatoes, the aggregated score was zero percent, which, by nearly all standards, is pretty sh*t.
Well, fear not Sony and Columbia Pictures, as The Emoji Movie has been saved from those depths, reserved only for the worst films, now standing at 8 percent.
Betsy Bozdech, writer for Common Sense Media, was the first person brave enough to give a relatively positive review of 3/5.
The website offers various scores for family friendliness, along with a score out of five for consumerism — The Emoji Movie only scores a 4/5 despite Dropbox, YouTube, and Just Dance all featuring heavily.
Kaplan vs. Kaplan also offered a positive review, stating: “The Emoji won’t win any prizes for animation, but at least it's an adventurous idea that will appeal to a variety of people.” The last film the website reviewed negatively was Dunkirk, which holds a 93 per cent approval rating on RT.
The third, and final, publication to give the film a positive review El Nuevo Día, a Spanish publication that seemingly hasn’t given a negative review on Rotten Tomatoes.
No doubt these reviews will be on the DVD box come release time. The Emoji Movie reaches UK cinemas 2 August. Yey.
