The Kissing Booth Reviews
First, the male love interest is the brawling, over-sexed "bad boy" that our fun loving, motherless main character can change to a committed, love struck softy. Somehow, after all those wild hookups and messing around with whatever girl he can get his hands on and violently beating on anyone he disagrees with, he just switches and becomes SOOO committed to and in love with little sister-ish Elle. Can we just stop with that whole I'm-the-girl-who-can-change-him plot? It's so cliche and unrealistic.
And Elle, the lead character - did she ever wear clothes? For someone who had never been kissed, she was pretty quick to strip down every chance she got. In fact, she was quick to do everything. She doesn't drink - next scene she's slamming drunk and dancing on a table, stripping and telling everybody she wants to go skinny dipping. She's never been kissed - After her first kiss, she decides to have sex with Mr. Bad Boy the first night they decide to be a couple. And where the heck was her dad in all this? She didn't go home overnight on at least two occasions and does dad care? Nope. Nothing. And Noah's parents? Derp. Derpity derp derp. They're never around. They never know what he's doing. Good parenting, right there.
So many things are ridiculous because they give teenagers a false impression of reality. Having never been kissed, it's doubtful the main character was on birth control, but no problem. She just goes all the way with some guy completely unplanned and things will be fine. And, you know, it was all just great and wonderful the first time even though she's like the size of a six year old and completely new to the whole physical relationship thing and he's at least six foot and slept with every girl in his high school. And they're outside on the ground. Sooo romantic.
And then, my favorite message of all to teen girls - Elle has just confessed how much she loves Noah, handed over her virginity to him like she's sharing an eighty cent candy bar, and hurt her best friend (who was constantly picked on and tortured by Noah) to be with him, but when Noah leaves she's all, "Meh, if things work out with him or if they don't, whatever. It's all goooood." Because, you know girls, you should put out for the guy you like and not really get too attached or expect a deeper commitment because sex means nothing and it's cool to, like, let some hot dude use you (sarcasm).
I won't go into detail over the "mean/popular girls" and how they were just sort of thrown in because every teen movie does that and I won't babble on about how the main characters were all well off and living in L.A. because that's the only place where anything ever happens, I won't discuss how Noah somehow gets into Harvard though we see little evidence of good behavior, good grades, or extracurricular activities besides hooking up with girls, getting into fights, and boozing (we never even know what Noah wants to go to college for even though he's off to a prestigious school like Harvard easy peasy. SUCH good character development), and I won't expound on how Elle looked utterly mismatched next to Noah and how anybody who saw them kissing in the airport would have gotten the wrong idea and called CPS. Never mind, I did talk about all those things. Whoops. Sorry.
This was so dumb on so many levels. Skip it.
Hear my warning.
Might just save a life
The director of the Kissing booth is Vince Marcello, this movie is a romance film and it was filmed in Cape town on Sudafrica and also they filmed in Hollywood.
As I wrote the background was Hollywood and the principal actors and actress are Jacob Elordi, Joey King and Molly Ringwald. Well, they also performed pretty well because there is a part in the movie where the girl has to exercise and then eat a hamburger and they say that after eating the hamburger she threw up for making so many shots of that part of the movie and we can say of that that she worked harder to not spoil the movie.
Focusing on the topic of how the movie was, i think that the movie was so funny and interesting because it isn't was like other films, it was original and nothing cliche.
I expected a lot more, I think Netflix could have made a much better movie if it had another return to the plot. After the trailer I expected a more entertaining movie. And it's not that it's a complete trick, but for me, what does not work is the plot, because it is the typical comedy of teenagers who have their grace if they did not have such a boring plot. It's very predictable. In favor, he says there are some funny scenes, but I think it's because of the actors, which are not as bad as the script.
Talking about special effects, they were nothing special but it isn't bad so was good but not perfect but I love the emotional effects because was so good.
If I am going to put on a scale this movie from 1 to 10 I will put 8 of 10 because the movie was not perfect but was so beautiful and enjoy so much also the fans of this movie will be happy because this movie has a lot of fans and I think that deserves it.
Teenagers should see this movie because they will have fun and they really enjoy it because a lot of they will identify with themselfs.
The message is that friendship is something very important and do not disappoint a person who has been with you for a long time.
Joey King has been seen also in other movies like "Slenderman", "Ramona and Beezus" as little, "Quarantine" and others. Jacob Elordi was seen in "Swinging Safari" and "Euphoria". Joel Courtney was seen in "The river thief", "Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn" and others.
Elle Evans is a student of high school but she hasn't kissed. For a collect she and her best friend Lee, decide to make a Kissing Booth. Elle and Lee have some best friends rules, the number nine its "relatives are OFF-limits" and the number ten it's "NEVER break the rule number nine". So when Noah Flynn (Lee´s Brother) and Elle kissed, they knew that they are in love with each other, so they start to date in secret. Elle needs to decide between her best friend or boyfriend.
The movie soundtrack it's very cool because they created their own songs for this movie, in my opinion the best scene it's when Elle and Lee are dancing in a game room and playing at the dance machine. I don't like to much the special effects because they aren't realistics, like when Noah and Elle kissed and they start to do rounds on circle so isn't realistic. This movie can makes you cry if you are sensible and you have passed some situation like this one.
In scale of 1 to 10 I give a 9 because I don't like some effects. In stars I give the movie 5 stars. The fans were to happy and the movie its popular at Netflix right now. People needs to watch this movie if they like the real relationships around the boy best friend of the girl, and the girl. Also if you like the romantic comedies. You're going to love watching this film.
