The reviews for The Emoji Movie are out and … hooboy, things have not gone well. The movie, which no one seemingly wanted or was excited for and which has been ruthlessly skewered by people across the internet, has earned itself a rare zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you are unfamiliar with the site, Rotten Tomatoes compiles reviews from across the world and works out an aggregate score. To receive a zero means literally every reviewer hated it. Ouch. For context, compare it to how other summer films have fared with the critics:
More reviews are on their way, so there’s a chance the film’s score may rise, but judging by some of the review quotes we’ve put together here … it doesn’t seem likely. Here are some of the most hilariously harsh extracts from the reviews for whatever the hell this blur of lights and sounds is meant to be:
2. Possibly the best line from a movie review of all time
3. Perhaps a bit of an exaggeration
4. To the point
5. So much regret
6. This incredible Simpsons reference
Other movies that have achieved the coveted zero percent rating include: Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back, Beer for My Horses, and a bunch of other films you’ve never heard of because – and we really want to emphasise this – it’s actually very difficult to get a pure zero on Rotten Tomatoes.

UPDATE: The movie is now on 8%! Maybe if we wait a little bit longer this film could end up being the best-reviewed movie of all time?! We’ll just have to wait and see!
