Where I Got It: Netflix


In the sequel to 2018's THE KISSING BOOTH, high school senior Elle juggles a long-distance relationship with her dreamy boyfriend Noah, college applications, and a new friendship with a handsome classmate that could change everything.

Had zero idea the sequel came out so I had to watch it asap.

We come back to Elle and her friends. Elle is trying to juggle a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend, fill out college applications, be with her friends, and a new friendship blooms with the new guy.

Oh Elle. Long-distance relationships succcckkkkk but love is worth it sometimes so I get it. But ugh Noah stinks. Boo. Yes - I'm not a fan of him especially by the end of the movie. Curious to see what happens in movie 3. 

I adore Elle and Lee. Lee is adorable. I loved Rachel for him even though I thought she was kinda bitchy here, but I can see why she was upset. I would probably be upset too. 

Marco was a little cutie. I want him to find love and happiness. 

But yes, I enjoyed this. It was cheesy and so drama-filled but so good. I can't wait for the third film. Curious to see how everything works out. I'm sure I know...and I will be mad....but we shall see. Maybe I won't be mad. 3 stars from me.

The first movie was just right, so I'm not loving that they are making the follow up movies. My daughter watched number 2 without me and she had similar comments. So I decided just skip it and wait for the third!

Jen, I think it's based on a trilogy? Not sure.

I felt they changed things around so much, but I guess that is life

B, yesss. I'm not surprised, but I was a little annoyed.
