ON THIS EPISODE:
It’s okay if you’re still trying to rationalize the EMOJI MOVIE’s existence. Yes, it’s low hanging fruit. Yes, the social commentary it attempts is probably over a year too late, but at least they can apparently round up a decent voice cast and carry a big budget. So let’s talk about this soulless cash machine for studio execs and try to come to terms with the reality that a sequel or spin off isn’t out of the question. With kids being overwhelmed with product tie-ins from clothing to fast-food meal toys, it’s almost certain that this movie will be a thorn in our side well past the upcoming holiday season. So this movie sucks, and the kids seem to love it… Let’s, us parents, have some fun at the film’s expense. Also, who is the little dude that comes out of the bartender’s back? Spin-off material anyone? “This summers best bartender stirs up some action and changes the way we see the service industry forever in… Back Man!”
