The Kissing Booth 2

Critics Consensus

Joey King makes The Kissing Booth 2 better than it could have been, but this slapdash sequel will leave viewers puckering up for all the wrong reasons.

Movie Info

Elle Evans (Joey King) just had the most romantic summer of her life with her reformed bad-boy boyfriend Noah Flynn (Jacob Elordi). But now Noah is off to Harvard, and Elle heads back to high school for her senior year. She'll have to juggle a long-distance relationship, getting into her dream college with her best friend Lee (Joel Courtney), and the complications brought on by a close friendship with a handsome, charismatic new classmate named Marco (Taylor Perez). When Noah grows close to a seemingly-perfect college girl (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Elle will have to decide how much she trusts him and to whom her heart truly belongs. Director and screenwriter Vince Marcello returns for The Kissing Booth sequel, based on characters from Beth Reekles' 2012 young adult book.

  • You can soak in the movie's basic premise and overacting just as long as you know this pool's shallow.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • If "The Kissing Booth 2" is watchable, viewers have Elle to thank; King remains the strongest component of a now-franchise that, quite frankly, might be beneath her.

  • Perez is marginally more charismatic than Elordi... But neither are as compelling as the question of why Elle's high school is full of teenage boys who look like adult Marvel superheroes.

  • The one saving grace is King, a genuinely delightful young actor who manages to hold your attention and empathy even if her underwritten character barely deserves it.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While it offers some necessary growth for all of its characters, "The Kissing Booth 2" can never resist looking and acting like dozens of other offerings of its genre ilk, unable to grow beyond basic complications and done-to-death dramas.

  • Director Vince Marcello leans heavily on montage to get us through this deluge of invented drama which, mercilessly, unspools over more than two hours.
