The Kissing Booth 2

The Kissing Booth 2 ★★½

Joey King is a great actress as we saw in the Hulu Show 'The Act', so it kind of baffles me to watch her in these movies in general.

So, the movie isn't terrible like I have read in some of the reviews on here. Is the film great? By no means, but is it a throwaway fun little film that you can enjoy? Absolutely.

The story is simplistic, as Elle is dealing with the transition of her boyfriend Noah moving to college. The lies, the potential cheating, college, and a new boy throws a wrench in the plans of their relationship.

Joey King is charming enough to make things interesting, you care enough about what is happening to her to invest what will happen to her character arc.

The acting outside of King is brutal at times, borderline un-watchable it you ask me. She just seems out of their league (she is) and it's noticeable on every level.

The script is fine, nothing new to really say OH WOW. Just a scorned teenager trying to figure out who she does or doesn't love, sounds like something we have seen a trillion times, right?

The Kissing Booth 2 isn't as good as the first but also isn't terrible, but come on do we really need a third?
