THE END OF AN ERA. THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING ELSE.
As Elle (Joey King) is choosing between Harvard and Berkeley, which is pretty much a choice between Lee and Noah (Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi), the gang learns that their beloved beach house is about to be sold. Tension is brewing between the fun-loving teenagers and it all comes down to fear of separation and an inability to cope with change; we can certainly relate, even if everybody in the movie behaves like an idiot at some point. Still splashy and charming, settling its romantic crises in ways that will satisfy young fans.
