Storyline

Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now Noah's off to Harvard, and Elle's headed back to high school for her senior year. She'll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and a new friendship with handsome classmate Marco (Taylor Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl, Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him, and just what - and who - her heart truly wants. Director and screenwriter Vince Marcello returns for THE KISSING BOOTH sequel, based on characters from Beth Reekles' 2012 young adult book. Written by Netflix

Better than the first one, but far from perfect
24 July 2020 | by Lockout_SaltiesSee all my reviews

I'll be honest; I went into The Kissing Booth 2 expecting it to be terrible. Instead, I got a movie that was better than the original, although that isn't saying much. It is the rare sequel that is stronger than the original, and I was pretty interested in it throughout. Elle makes some smart decisions in this movie, and each one of them is really satisfying to watch (especially tricking Marco into playing that dance game). The Elle in the original Kissing Booth wouldn't have done that, and it's nice to see how she's grown as a character. Additionally, it was hard to see where the plot was going. I never really could predict what would happen between Elle and Marco, or Elle and Noah for that matter. These are some of the things for this movie that I liked.

My biggest problem with the film is that it has a terrible message for young women. Basically, Elle learns to... live for others instead of herself. Excuse me? Are you really trying to posit that a women should not' be herself, and be whatever other people want from her? It was honestly kind of disgusting. Secondly, the fact that pretty much all the people of color in this movie are disliked by the main character throughout most of the movie is also worrisome. Like yeah, eventually she warms up to them, but we still have to sit through two hours of her being suspicious of Chloe, and being annoyed with Marco. Thirdly, the characters did make some pretty stupid decisions often. For example. there's a really tiny subplot involving a guy who secretly likes another guy, but he doesn't know how to tell him. I knew from the first moment I saw them that he was romantically interested in him. However, it takes Elle way too long to figure this out, even though it was extremely obvious. These aren't all my problems with the movie, but these are just some of my biggest ones.

Overall, I enjoyed the Kissing Booth 2. It was really, really flawed, but at the end of the day it's still fun. If you are feeling down, watch this movie to bring you back up.
