Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List



If you're familiar with Rachel Cohen's book, then you are sure to want to see this film. Its a modern romance tale and New York City is a major character in the film too. Its all about life starting college and a personal story of loving someone who you will never marry.
"Man, the X-Men were, like, pivotal heroes for me. You know, the other superheroes, they have their alter egos, you know, the Clark Kents, the Bruce Waynes to hide behind. X-Men are different. They’re always exactly who they are.
— Bruce 2, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List
"It’s bullshit to think of friendship and romance as being different. They’re not. They’re just variations of the same love. Variations of the same desire to be close.
— Rachel CohnNaomi and Ely’s No Kiss List
"It’s a total lie to say there’s only one person you’re going to be with for the rest of your life. If you’re lucky - and if you try really hard - there will always be more than one.
— Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List 

We find Naomi (Victoria Justice) as a compulsive liar, but she is the biggest liar to herself. She really doesn't like change. Her bestie is Ely (played by the sexy Pierson Fode) who definitely can't wait for the changes in college. He's lived next door to Naomi (in a New York apartment building) all his life and they have needed each other to get over their family crisis'. However, Naomi isn't quite over hers with her mother.

I did find the film a bit juvenile in the beginning. A girl who thinks she is very mature, but definitely isn't in many areas of her life. It was good to see the movie grow. Some great engaging characters with actors Ryan Ward and Matthew Daddario. I loved the soundtrack to this film. And I loved the message too.
