The Kissing Booth 2: Teenage Girls Deserve More
The Kissing Booth 2
Directed by Vince Marcello
Written by Vince Marcello, Jay S. Arnold
Good gravy, don’t teenage girls deserve story logic like teenage boys do?* Nothing in this film makes sense, especially the time line** but also people’s motivations are cued at the need of the plot. Regardless, did I watch the whole thing with a smile on my face?***
The verdict: Skip
Also Good, if you are in the right mood and willing to overlook many, many flaws.
Cost: Netflix monthly fee ($8.99)
Where watched: at home
Consider watching instead:
*Yes, they do!
**The time line in this film operates at speed of plot. Sending in college applications in September? Finding out if you got into schools in June? Homecoming carnival happening after Thanksgiving? Still unanswered from the first movie: Dance Club? Who are the other members? What does the club do?
- How does this movie manage to be pleasurable and maddening at the same time?
- What was the single most unrealistic moment in this film?
Favorite IMDB trivia item:
The movie is set in Los Angeles but mostly filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
