The Kissing Booth Reviews

It feels like it was written by someone who simply digested everything she was told "romance" was supposed to be by the patriarchy, and vomited back at us. Nearly every clich in the film feels cribbed from another movie.

A smattering of swearing, sexual references and underage drinking means it doesn't patronise its intended audience, and it refreshingly allows the female lead to be the dork, rather than some unobtainable Venus.

Largely for its pre-teen audience as its flaws will likely stand out like an unwanted cold sore on prom night for those outside of its target demographic.

I can confirm that it's not a good film. In fact, its themes are at times unsettling.

In another film, the sentiment would be a romantic one. In The Kissing Booth, it feels like a cage.

Allusions to The Breakfast Club in the soundtrack and the casting of Molly Ringwald certainly don't help The Kissing Booth look anything other than lazy and amateur next to other teen classics.

Quirky romcom has strong language, teen drinking, sex.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 17, 2018
Tone-shifting "cute" teen rom-com that becomes less young teen suitable and more clumsy and ham-handed, the longer it runs.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 15, 2018
[The Kissing Booth's] troubling treatment of the female body and unrealistic representation of high school hinders its ability to accomplish anything meaningful.

The Kissing Booth is not a good movie. It is a good, drunk, mindless, late night rom-com watch, but it is not a good movie. For that, we say skip it.
