Loving Emojis with the Emoji Movie

I was provided a complimentary copy of this movie for the sole purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own. 

Every once in awhile you just need some downtime. Time spent doing absolutely nothing that is on your to-do list and just chill. Last Thursday night. that was exactly what Gracie and I did.  After I picked her up from school, I ordered a pizza to be delivered, we popped in a DVD and curled up on the couch in the living room just chilling. 

The movie of the night was The Emoji Movie. Knowing my teenage daughter like I do I knew this movie would be perfect for her. And guess what it was. 

It was good to see my girl laugh and forget about all the drama at school. (Because believe me there is a whole lot drama going on at her school.) Plus being a teenager who half of her text messages and snapchats are replies are filled with emojis I knew she would relate to it. 

Want to hear a little bit about the movie? Here is a brief overview of it. 


The animated comedy unlocks the never before seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden withing the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression- except for Gene. He is an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic “appventure” through the apps on the phone, the fate of all the emojis depends on these three unlikely friends, who must save their world before it’s deleted forever. 

I mean seriously how does that sound? I love how this movie share struggles that any teenager can relate to – I mean seriously- bullies, being unfriended, being different from everyone else and finally acceptance. 

This movie was so well done that I can’t help but recommend it to parents of teenagers. But I totally recommend parents watch it with their children, it is a great conversation starter.
