Kissing Booth 2 Review: Though a cliche rom-com it's entertaining to watch unlike it's predecessor.

Review

Synopsis:

After a romantic summer together, Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle back to high school for her senior year. Watch as she juggles a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Noah, college applications, bestfriend Lee & his girlfriend and a second potential love interest.

Details:

• Release date : 24 July 2020.
• Streaming on : Netflix.
• Sequel to The Kissing Booth.
• Based on : The Kissing Booth 2: Going the Distance by Beth Reekles.
• Rating : 7.0/10.
• Watchability : 8.2/10.
• Cast : Joey King, Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi, Molly Ringwald, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Meganne Young.


Pros:
• Better writing than first movie.
• Cast matured especially Joey King & Jacob Elordi.
• Subplots.
• Expanding Elle's life other than just love with college & dance competition.

Cons:
• Runtime (could be trimmed by 30 min).
• Unsureness in ending.
• Rom-com cliches.

5 Reasons to watch Kissing Booth 2:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Better Script: Unlike it's predecessor the movie script didn't suck. It's not good too but much better than the first movie.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Verdict:

• 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.
