MOVIE REVIEW: THE KISSING BOOTH (Vince Marcello, 2018)

AB0F8892-245F-4D93-B9D0-EEEE1E3463AE

I wasn’t even surprised that this was an adaptation of a Wattpad story written by a 15-year old girl. Every possible 80’s and 90’s teen film trope was included here, with Molly Ringwald and Don’t You (Forget About Me) thrown in for good measure.

Joey King (the charmer in Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here) was adorable in the lead role, but I cared more about her relationship with her best bud rather than her really tall boyfriend. She also looked/sounded very much like a younger Alexis Bledel, no?

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
