The Emoji Movie quotes bring the laughs to the film about one emoji who doesn't seem to fit in among the other emojis who live in one boy's phone. The animated comedy movie was directed by Tony Leondis using a screenplay he co-wrote with Eric Siegel and Mike White. The Emoji Movie opened in theaters in the United States on July 28, 2017.
In The Emoji Movie, high school freshman Alex (voiced by Jake T. Austin) receives a text from his crush, Addie (voiced by Tati Gabrielle). But when Alex tries to respond with a meh emoji, Gene (voiced by T. J. Miller) makes the wrong face.
Gene has always felt out of place in a world where he's supposed to be a meh emoji as he's always felt a range of emotions, well beyond meh. But when he meets Jailbreak (voiced by Anna Paris), she sees a way for Gene to fix his mistake and feel better about himself at the same time. But to do that, they need to embark on a fantastic adventure through Alex's phone.
With additional voice work from James Corden, Maya Rudolph, Patrick Stewart, Christina Aguilera and Sofía Vergara, among others, The Emoji Movie joined theaters already showing other summer 2017 movies including The Dark Tower, Detroit, Dunkirk, and Despicable Me 3.
He's Making the Wrong Face
Phone: We have an incoming text. We are go for meh.
Gene: Who, me?
Bomb: What’s he doing?
Dizzy Face: He’s making the wrong face!
Addie: Huh? What the heck?
As Alex responds to Addie's text with what is meant to be a meh emoji, the emoji team inside his phone prepares to send. So when in these The Emoji Movie quotes Gene makes the wrong face, the process ends horribly bad.
We Have to Get Through This
Jailbreak: First we have to get through this...
Jailbreak: What’s Alex’s girlfriend’s name again?
Hi-5: It was Tina.
Firewall: Access denied
Hi-5: Karen... Sarah... I want to say Lupita, but that doesn’t feel right now that I’m saying it out loud.
Gene, Jailbreak and Hi-5 try their best to get through Alex's phone's firewall. But considering none of them know the password or the name of Alex's girlfriend, it doesn't go too well.
We're Number Two
Poop: Okay, son, what do we do after we go potty?
Poop Jr.: Should we wash our hands?
Poop and Poop Jr.: Ha ha ha ha ha! We’re number two!
The Poop emojis seem to thoroughly enjoy toilet humor, as evidenced by these The Emoji Movie quotes. They're proud to be number two and, apparently, covered in poo.
I'm Supposed to Be a Meh
Gene: Welcome to the world inside your phone where everyone is expected to act one way their whole life. My name is Gene and I’m supposed to be a Meh, you know, like, “Meh, who cares?” but my problem is I have more than one emotion.
Mel: Son, please tell me you weren’t just laughing right now. What if you get sent out on the phone making the wrong face?
Gene: Dad, I’ll make the right face, and then I would finally fit in.
Mary: Sweetie, you’re so handsome when you make that face. I think he’s ready now.
Glen describes what his life is like as an emoji. Like his parents, he was supposed to be a meh emoji, but he struggles to fit in as he has more than one emotion in him.
