Plot - After a romantic summer together, Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. Things start to fall apart when she meets Marco in senior year.
The Kissing Booth 2 is back after almost 2 years after the first one released. This time the film deals with “LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP” of Elle and Noah as he is studying at Harvard for college. In most of the 2-hour run – time we see them dealing with problems couples face when they are miles apart from each other. In this midst, a new character is introduced called Marco, who becomes everyone’s favourite almost instantly. Elle and Lee are great buddies but it becomes a bit too much for Lee’s girlfriend Rachel and she starts to stay away from the duo.
Part 2 of the Kissing Booth is comparatively better than the first one, honestly, when you watch the first part you won’t like how cheesy and cliché the entire film is. This movie series has its audience and fans, it will be coming for a 3rd part as well and people will make it popular as well. The story lacks the emotion for characters like Elle and lee, who keep on doing stuff they are not supposed to and later face absolutely no consequences for it, because why not --- they are the lead characters.
The movie series is based on the books written by Beth Reekles, she published the books “The Kissing Booth” when she was 17 years old. I haven’t got the chance to read the books but it remains on my reading list.
The good parts of the movie, are our characters taking some good decisions for their life and thinking about their future. It was not seen in the first part of the film. It was something I liked. Secondly, the film brings Marco who is an amazing character – if he is in the 3rd part of the film, I would love to see his character develop for good.
The acting remains mediocre like the previous one, however, I like Joey King making the best out of Elle.
The runtime of the film is 2 hour and 12 minutes which is half an hour more than the first time around. In my opinion, the length of the movie could’ve been shorter and crisper as there are many scenes and subplots in the story that have no pay – off.
Overall, the movie was entertaining and way better than the first one.
Final Score – [6/10]
