5 Reasons to watch Kissing Booth 2:
- Cast: The cast has matured. Joey King proved herself with "The Act" and Jacob Elordi with "Euphoria". The performances have improved significantly since the first movie.
- Elle's More interesting: In this movie Elle's (Joey King) life doesn't completely revolve around her love interest and best friend unlike it's predecessor, she has college applications and a dance competition to dive a little more into her character.
- Better Script: Unlike it's predecessor the movie script didn't suck. It's not good too but much better than the first movie.
- Interesting Subplots: The movie added two subplots, one continuing the blooming romance of Elle's best friend bestfriend Lee & his girlfriend and their problems with Elle's clinginess. And second a simple yet slightly forced gay romance mirroring the love story of Elle in the first movie.
- Taylor Zakhar Perez: New addition to the movie Taylor's character Marco was surprisingly good, he posed as a secondary love interest and believe me at times audience wish for him to succeed wooing Elle.
• Let me be frank I just didn't like the first movie for a numorus reasons but mainly for writing it was so bad.
• The sequel has a better sense of direction, better story and you give a damn about the characters unlike the first one.
• The subplots were a nice addition.
• Joey King has matured a lot since the first movie and it clearly shows.
• It's definitely a cliche rom-com but unlike the first movie it flows, is entertaining & enjoyable.
• So if you just wanna pass time it's a pleasant watch.
