I thought it was time to update you all on the latest Netflix wins. One movie in particular REALLY surprised me! The Kissing Booth. Have you heard of it? It has Joey King as the main character. Yes, from Romona and Beezus. She’s all grown up and finding herself in some love drama. Now I have to admit, I heard some really silly reviews of this movie. Reviews that were basically saying “its so bad its good”. And I LOVE a good cheesy teen love story so I HAD to watch it.
No joke, by the end of the movie I was googling the actors and becoming very invested in their real life love story. Lol! It always makes it better when the actors fall in love in real life doesn’t it? I LOVEEEDDDD the first movie. I got so hooked! Well to my surprise they were just about to release a SECOND movie a few days later. The timing was perfect on this one.
The Kissing Booth 2 was released July 24th. At this point I read that Joey King and Jacob Eldori had broken up in real life and had to film the second movie pretending to still be love interests. Oh you bet I was ready with a bowl of popcorn to see if their on screen chemistry changed at all. Honestly- it didn’t. After the sequel was over I was READY for a third one. It literally left it open for a third movie and fans were all over Twitter begging for a third installment from Netflix.
To everyone’s surprise- THEY ALREADY FILMED THE THIRD ONE AND TOLD US IT WILL BE RELEASED IN 2021!
In conclusion- check out The Kissing Booth 1 & 2 if you get a chance!
