Storyline

When Elle Evans (Joey King), a pretty, late-bloomer who's never-been-kissed, decides to run a kissing booth at her high school's Spring Carnival, she unexpectedly finds herself locking lips with her secret crush- the ultimate bad boy, Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). Sparks fly, but there's one little problem: Noah just happens to be the brother of her best friend, Lee, (Joel Courtney) and is absolutely off limits according to the rules of their friendship pact. Elle's life is turned upside down when she realizes that she must ultimately make a choice: follow the rules or follow her heart. Based on Beth Reekle's self-published coming-of-age novel that became an international sensation, THE KISSING BOOTH is a Netflix Film, written and directed by Vince Marcello.

It Could've Been Great
17 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I've been seeing this movie around the internet for a while, and a lot of people said that it was great, so I gave it a try. I was expecting it to be a proper rom-com teenage movie, but instead it was a cringey movie which was romanticizing a possible problematic relationship. Noah, who was the love interest of the main character, was very controlling even before they were in a relationship. On the other hand, the main character was just as bossy. There were a lot of cringe-worthy moments in this movie, especially with a lot of lines and with the party scene. The actors were great, though it felt weird that the leading man looked like a 20+ old guy trying to get a 15 year-old girl through cheesy and cliche lines. All in all, this movie had potential, but not enough to become a sensational rom-com movie.
