Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
In the sequel to 2018's THE KISSING BOOTH, high school senior Elle juggles a long-distance relationship with her dreamy boyfriend Noah, college applications, and a new friendship with a handsome classmate that could change everything.
Lara Jean Covey writes letters to all of her past loves, the letters are meant for her eyes only. Until one day when all the love letters are sent out to her previous loves. Her life is soon thrown into chaos when her foregoing loves confront her one by one.
Lucas's name in the novels is Lucas Krapf, but Lucas James in the movie. See more »
When Kitty and Lara Jean are on the couch watching Golden Girls reruns, Kitty says that her other sister is "doing crack," which, according to her, is how Scottish people say 'fun.' The term is actually Irish, not Scottish. "What's the craic?" "That's some good craic." See more »
The forbidden kiss. We knew that it was wrong, that he was betrothed to my sister. But if this wasn't what he wanted, then why did he come to the field of desire? It was fated that we should meet like this

The film's copyright date is in roman numerals, and translates to 2017 rather than 2018. See more »
Having thoroughly enjoyed the book and it's characters, my expectations for the film were somewhat high - and met!
The film is a light hearted and fun watch, not dissimilar to films like The DUFF and How to be Single. I was left feeling sentimental and warm, I'll be watching it again later today!
The adaptation was true to the book and contained the key elements that made it such a fun read in the first place. Lara Jean is as fickle but entertaining as her character in the book, the same with other characters (Peter is just as cocky but charming). My only slight complaint is that we didn't get to see the best of Kitty, the craziest and wittiest character in the book at such a young age! She had some fantastic one liners in the books that still make me cackle.
The ending of the film set it up well for the sequel - hopefully other fans enjoy it as much as I did and we get to see everyone reunite to tackle the next plot!
