Movie Review: The Kissing Booth (2018)

The Kissing Booth is a trailer that I saw on Facebook and I wanted to see it so bad! Although the movie didn’t receive great reviews from those very critical critics, I thought it was a super funny teen romance that all of us girls wished we had.

This movie was actually a book, I’m surprised I haven’t read it, but it’s on the list of my must-reads! There are 3 books to this saga, but we are only going to talk about the movie in this review. Not to mention, this book was originally published on Wattpad, the currently place to find any of my works as well!

The movie is about Elle Evans and Lee Flynn, the best of friends, and how they decided to run a kissing booth for their dance team, especially since Elle has never been kissed, but runs a kissing booth. However, Elle and Lee have to try and get Noah Flynn, Lee’s older brother, to do the kissing booth.

The spin on this kissing booth, is that it’s not just one person kissing everyone, they switch it up, having different guys and girls for the booth, however, the kisser is blindfolded.

With that being said, you would think the story is about Lee and Elle getting together as a couple, but you are so wrong! Since they grew up as best friends, they have a list of rules for their friendship. With one of the rules that Noah being off-limits.

Basically, it’s a teen romance that can’t happen, but it does. I don’t want to spoil the entire movie either.

If you are looking for a fun girls night flick or want something completely out of your comfort zone, this is definitely worth a watch! Yes, the romance may be cheesy or unlikely to happen in real life, but it’s a fantasy that all of us have either dreamed about or wanted to try it out.

Not to mention, as if they would have a rich house to get drunk and party in, which is what a lot of critics complained about, or what they didn’t like about the film. I understand they don’t like it, but as if they didn’t do that when they were teens? Not to mention, throwing a party, as a teenager today, would have been shut down as soon as a bunch of cars started to be parked around the house.

This is a movie I can definitely watch over and over again. However, this might not be something your spouse will want to watch with you all the time. I can see this being on a mixed movie playlist for a girl’s night in if any of us moms get the chance to have one.

Overall, most people look at the critic reviews before actually listening to the fans or watching the film itself. There are a lot of movies that critics have trashed on, but yet the fans have a more positive outcome about the movie. To me, I trust watching the movie itself before going ahead and judging it.

If you would like to watch this movie, it is currently streaming on Netflix and they also have a sequel in the works that has yet to have a date release on when it’s coming out.
