25. The Kissing Booth 2

One of the most popular rom-coms on Netflix was The Kissing Booth and there was no way Netflix wasn’t going to make a sequel after that much success. If you loved the first film, you’ll love the second just as much. Honestly,  what’s better for Valentine’s Day than a teen rom-com?

In this sequel, Elle is in her senior year in high school and Noah is in college at Harvard.

Their relationship seems pretty stable, but there are definitely some insecurities going on underneath the surface. When Elle hears her classmates talk about her and Noah breaking up, she lets it get to her. Noah posting a picture on Instagram with a pretty girl doesn’t help either.

While she is feeling insecure about her romantic relationship, she and her best friend, Lee, are once again planning the kissing booth and want to get the new kid, Marco, to be a part of the booth this year.

At first, he doesn’t want to, but when Elle bets that she can beat him at a video dancing game, she wins and pretty much forces him to participate.

Beyond the relationship stress and the kissing booth, she is also dealing with college pressure from Lee and Noah. Lee wants her to go to Berkeley while Noah wants her at Harvard. God forbid she make a decision for herself without pressure, but whatever.

Her anxiety doesn’t get any better when she visits Noah and meets his friends who include the girl she saw in the picture. It ends with Elle finding an earring near Noah’s bed and confronting him about it.

Elle also ends up in a dancing competition with Marco and catches feelings for him. What would a teen romance be without a love triangle? It’s a must!

More problems occur as Noah finds out about Elle and Marco and Lee discovers Elle might be applying to Harvard. The movie ends on a bit of a cliffhanger with Elle getting accepted to both Berkeley and Harvard. Where will she go? We will have to wait until Kissing Booth 3 comes out in summer 2021.
