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.

A really entertaining film
3 May 2019 | by mysterarrowSee all my reviews

This is what might be termed a wry humour film. I can see why it is popular with all age groups - you might call it romantic comedy - it says a lot about crowd mentality. But it is about more than gender sociologically. Great acting from the chick... a real hetero

From the spelling of humour you can guess I am not American.So I am not ashamed of the human body.
