Must admit the movie didn’t end the way I thought it might. But I do feel the way Noah turned and looked at Elle gave us a glimpse into their future. Then we see them riding on their bikes, too me it was like watching them ride off into the sunset. I totally feel it was to keep us guessing to what might be or could of been. Do I feel they end up together, definitely. They have a love that lasts through the ages, although not perfect, but there is definitely love and an ongoing spark. That doesn’t disappear.
I admire Noah for letting Elle go, so she could find herself, u could certainly see the pain as he did. But, Noah’s road has always lead back to Elle and Elle’s road has always lead back to Noah. I, like most love a happy ever after, but unfortunately real life isn’t always like that and not always in a movie either. But for myself I do feel that both Elle and Noah do eventually get their happy ever after. I’m happy to continue to think that way.
Everyone deserves to b happy and loved, even if they experience some bad along the way. It’s what helps to see clearer the good once it is right in front of us when we are ready.
Would it b great to see a Kissing Booth 4, absolutely, but, for now I feel we need to just enjoy the ride. Thank you to all the cast and those behind the scene, thank you for the last few years. This last movie has left me with some disappointment but I’m prepared to use my imagination and see into their future and see that they got their happy ever after.

The ending would be better if after that "revisiting the kissing booth" scene, Elle goes to the "spot" and saw Noah standing there.

“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out between the two of us”

It’s like Jacob telling Joey, not Noah to Elle. Huhuhuhu noooo I’m not crying 🥺🥺

I’m probably going to deep for a teen movie, but I think the bike was a metaphor. In the first 2 movies Elle was just on the back of Noah’s bike going wherever he would take her as part of his life. Even so far as to pick Harvard, just to follow Noah in his life. Then at the end, she got her own bike and took her own path and he just happened to be riding along side her.

I think the essence of the ending was Noah turning to look back at Elle. That was it, the point, the ending. It’s a recall from TKB1, and here, him looking back at her means he’s changed and matured and is ready. For me, at least. Happy endings don’t always need to show a kiss or marriage or idk. But here they literally rode off into the sunset together ❤️

Isabella Siejkowski:
I was so disappointed with the ending just because I’ve been team Noah since the first film. I know in my heart the two definitely ended up together. When he looked back at her my heart exploded and made me feel so nostalgic of the first movie.

I enjoyed part 1 and 2. Part 3 to me the ending was bittersweet. After all elle and noah went thru in part 1-2 they definitely deserved a happy ending, but i guess the writer didn't see it fit. Kinda disappointed because both part 1&2 had really great endings. still a good movie id watch it again but i just really wish the ending could have been a little better. Part 4 maybe?

I absolutely agree: this ending was perfect, leaving us wanting more ❤
Hello Everyone
Hello Everyone:
The ending would have been PERFECT. If El and Noah both kissed at the kissing booth and get back together. Noah accepts the job offer in LA and start a family like Flynn did. That would have been an end of an era. Plus a great movie where it could represent that whether if we choose our career over our loved ones at the end our love for each other finds back its way .

Obsessed with the first two but not the last one… producers should know that the corny story with the happy ending was what made the movies so popular. With all that craziness in the world I want the hope of the “fake” and ultimate love with the happily ever after and not just assume… like I do in my reality..
Sarah Villalpando
Sarah Villalpando:
Anyone else this time around kind of want her to choose Marco? He let her be herself! The Flynn boys just sucked the life out of me on this movie with their selfishness. But I guess Elle choosing Elle isn’t so bad.
S T:
This movie is what missed in Lara Jean ending, was much more real and bittersweet which is what growing up is. I liked that Elle found herself alone, that her beastie was called of for being a spoil brat without hardships in life and Noah becoming frustrated and tired with the love triangle and the endless arguing with Elle. Those things made the movie much better for me.
I think this was the perfect way to end the story. As much as they all loved each other, they were destroying each other at the same time. Seeing them all take a break from each other and watching Elle choose herself was so freeing. Also the flashbacks as Elle was covering up the furniture was directed so beautifully i fr started crying. Great movie.
Carrie Cruz
Carrie Cruz:
I think we all just need to be patient because the actors do deserve a break after making three movies and maybe later in the future, they will decide to make a 4th film, remember actors are still human beings and if anyone wants a 4th film. I encourage you guys to be patient and have faith and hope.
Yo I finished watching it, and it was so good🔥 even tho I cried some parts u can tell it was awesome. I really loved it, like it basically made me feel like I was in the movie and I was friends with them. And the ending was not what I expected 🤔 it was even better then I thought, I kinda like the way they left it as a cliffhanger bc now we can guess what happens next if they ever make another one in the future. The kissing booth films are just the best, they make me feel like I’m in the movie and that im friends with all of them idk how to explain that also I already said that LOL but all I’m saying is the kissing booth films make me feel a bunch of mixed emotions 🤪🤩 that’s what I love about it.....😍

CM Solinsky
CM Solinsky:
She is adorable! Loved the movie - for a 3rd installment, I think it was done very well and I personally feel that Elle and Noah definitely end up together, being the hopeless romantic that I am. When Noah turned around at the end of the film when he was at the top of the stairs, it took my back to the ending of the first movie - to me this spoke volumes! I loved how she said that when Elle is in her 40's that her kids and Lee's kids would be best friends - so sweet!
Pam Kowaski
Pam Kowaski:
It was just like the airport scene all over again. Except this time he turns around and looks back at her. That says a lot itself if you remember the end of the first one.

I seriously was sitting on the edge waiting for Noah to pop the question. Why did they twist it around like that!? Also why no
More Marco??
I feel like I already knew they wouldn’t end up in the end with the on and off in they’re relationship but a bit sad that they didn’t end up in the end, because especially now they are grown-up so I don’t really know if it is a opening ending…

Really awesome movie.Didnt feel bored .
This ending, Carrie 2013's ending and Ma's ending was devastating for me, like i kind of wanted Marco with Elle, and also hated that scene where he punches Noah and she literally blames him like it's even Noah's fault, also seeing the main characters in Ma being unseen and unconfirmed wheter what happened, Carrie dying, and Elle being in 6 years later is making me hating it. Like idk wheter the fourth one would take place between this ending or before the ending? And i have a theory that it was all a flashback and the real Elle is the one in the ending.

I feel like elle and Joey King are almost alike well I would say L’s friendship with Lee is the same friendship they have in real life because they both crack each other up they’re both weirdos they’re both amazing they have the same exact friendship that they have on the show but in real life but like personality wise I feel like Elle Joey are a little diff but do you have similarities

Signal Retakez:
My opinion for the ending would be great if she chose Marco as he was nothing but nice to Elle and he was always there for her. Noah have her reasons for her not to trust him but she wasnt the greatest of girlfriends as she often but lee before noah. The most important part is that noah gave up on her and marco didn't.

I wish there was part 4 last night the kissing Booth three what's not what I expected to be it's supposed to be a pack too bad it wasn't🤮
2:12 fr i haven't heard that song since I was a teen you should have put a trigger warning for my EMOTIONS
It's funny how everyone was hating the relationship of Noah and Elle on TKB1 and TKB2, saying that they were a very toxic and childish couple, and everyone seemed to love Marco for Elle. But in this film, they are all hating the fact that Noah and Elle didn't have a proper "ending"... like wth people???
I must say that I enjoyed this movie way more than the first and the second one. This movie made Elle grow up as a person, and even if many people didn't like what happened between them, I loved the fact that Noah broke up with her, specially since he didn't want her to be dependent to him and his decisions. If she wants to go to Harvard, it must be because she wants to go there, not because his boyfriend is in there. I'm glad that Noah noticed that and make the difficult decision of letting her go in order to make her grow.
Also, it's good to see Elle redeeming herself by apologizing to everyone, and most specially to herself.
Idk I found this movie more interesting and I was very surprised with the ending, I was #TeamMarco and it would have been really cool and refreshing if she ended up with him instead (I knew that wasn't going to happen tho, Netflix is very "coward" when it comes to extreme decisions) But I'm happy with the ending, I think it's important that people understand that you can have a happy ending without a partner :)
