It was amusing but certainly not as funny as a lot can claim it to be.

Also... Why do movie like this even exist nowadays?

Hollywood is 100% running out of fresh ideas.

I can not believe it, it's more fun than the original  :hannah4

And answering your question Magic. The creativity of Holywwood and Sony is dead. They are just looking for easy money, that does not offend social groups and that is politically correct. That's why there are many movies like this. And that's why I never see them. With a few ecepsion as zootopia, I liked it, not only because it has rabbits.
Basically is the answer. They do not want to take risks, make animated productions with deep themes, because they do not sell or can offend someone ... That's why creativity is dead in the cinema.
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Very late to the restart but this is completely allowed since it fits in.
Media magazine Den of Geek has published a "Saudi Arabia lifts cinema ban, screens The Emoji Movie" article.
35 years since movie theatres were banned in Saudi Arabia then lifts their ban on cinema watching and the first thing they show is the worst movie of 2017, perhaps even the decade or the century or one of the worst movies to ever exist but still... ...Bad choice of first movie in 35 years, should of picked a better one.

(Just wanted to give a thought! :D)

I do think another reason why they made this was because they know there are parents who'll watch it in cinemas and buy the movie and all its merchandise. They understand that someone will watch whatever crap they churn out, so anything they think is semi-original will be created. I've heard parents who took their kids to the film complain about how stupid and what a waste the film was (in fact, I've yet to hear a parent say anything remotely nice about it), but most of those same parents will go out and buy a dvd just to keep their kids quiet for an hour and a half.

Hollywood and film studios are definitely to blame for these monstrosities, but if parents will take kids to anything no matter the content, why waste money and time on good animation and intellectual plots?

This is ridiculous about Saudi Arabia...

I think you make a valid point Flora.  It would be nice if parents actually showed quality shows and movies to their children instead...but as long as they show them hraka like this, the studios won't make quality programming :(

At least we don't BAN theatres in the West for 3 and a half decades.
