These friends have drawn up their own sets of rules and Elle has to choose which ones to break after falling for Lee’s brother, Noah (Jacob Elordi) — breaking Rule No. 9. The two meet when Elle signs up to run a kissing booth at a carnival.
As far as Netflix movies go, “The Kissing Booth” is one of the good ones. Jam-packed with jokes, the 2018 film it is great for a laugh. However, one of the drawbacks is that there is a bit of language in it (use of the F-word a few times). As long as you are OK with that, though, it is fine.
Another thing is the film, released in May, is rated TV-14 so I would recommend it only to older teens. The movie is adapted from the young adult novel “The Kissing Booth” by Beth Reekles.

Elle has a lot of sass, as does Lee, which adds up to a good laugh. Noah is funny, too, as he is protective of Elle and gets into lots of trouble because of her.
I loved the relationship Elle and Lee had. If I had a guy best friend, I would want him to be just like Lee.
The movie has many sweet moments, and romantic ones as well. I think the cutest part is the height difference between Elle and her love interest. It is also sweet the way he looks at her.
All in all, “The Kissing Booth” — although not realistic to normal high school kids — is a cute, funny movie for this summer about the hardships of liking your best friend’s brother.
