The Kissing Booth
If you are on Netflix and love cheesy teen movies, highly suggest watching “The Kissing Booth.” I have personally watched this movie at least a hundred times. It’s slightly cringey and funny as hell.
This movie starring Joey King, Jacob Elordi, and Joel Courtney follows two very best friends Lee and Elle and their high school experience. Their dance group has to come up with an idea for their school’s fair and, as you can guess from the title, it’s a kissing booth. Now through all this, we’re also looking at the main problem of Elle being totally into Lee’s older brother Noah. Big no no.
It’s full of laughs, tears, betrayal, sex, coming of age, and pretty much anything else you’d expect from a “dramatic” teen movie, including Molly Ringwald who plays Lee and Noah’s mom.
The movie is actually based off a book that was written on a site called Wattpad, which is a place anyone can post their work and every now and then, someone gets published and gets a movie deal. It is a really good book, though and the movie follows the book very well.
Another thing I like about the movie is that the actors are actually young enough to play teenagers. Joey being 18 and Jacob and Joel being 21 makes it actually seem like they’re teenagers. The acting is pretty good for the cheesiness of the film.
I don’t recommend the movie for smaller crowds because there is a bit of sexiness in the movie and language but that’s up to you.
Let me know what you guys think of the movie and thanks for reading!
