Dove Approved for Ages 12+

It takes all kinds of emojis to make the world go 'round. That is one lesson presented in this imaginative and pun-filled movie—that and the fact that one must take risks in order to find what one is truly made of. Gene the Emoji has to do this because he has not been selected to appear on a [...]

For those of you who have seen prequels I and II, this movie picks up where II left off with some interesting twists (you're probably as surprised as I was to see Famke Janssen among the cast list).

'Wow' is the best way to start this review.

This is a near-miss and it is always disappointing when a film comes oh-so-close and yet crosses our level of [...]
