Love, Simon ()

Probable Score
Not Enough Info
Your Rating

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for Simon it's complicated: no-one knows he's gay and he doesn't know who the anonymous classmate is that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, scary and life-changing. (imdb)

I went to this, dragged along by my daughter, she's 14, thinks she's gay, loves really crappy musicals. So, yeah, I was fully prepared to die a little on the inside watching this one. It's got all the stuff I expected and desperately hoped not to see, like a female best friend secretly in love with the gay guy, your obligatory drama club, and cringy public professions of love. But even with all of that, "Love, Simon" was handled and acted well enough that, for the life of me, I can't hate it.

Pros: Sweet; family friendly; mainstream film where a gay, biracial couple actually has a happy ending where they are visibly together. Cons: This film plays into a larger trend of chaste, outdated homonormativity that's all over Hollywood. It obscures Simon's queerness by consistently reminding us that he's "normal“, "tolerated", and “like everyone else", thereby making the target audience of this largely cis-hetero people so as to make them feel good for tolerating us abnormal queers.

I know it's bad to compare a film with its source as they are two different things but the book just did it so much better. Part of the appeal of the book that put it a cut above the average YA novel was the normality of the central character, the indie music references and the humour. Other than the fabulous drama teacher, the humour did not cross over into the film, and Simon's obsession with music was only lightly touched on. No classic but I appreciate what it's achieving for gay awareness.

The sweet-natured LOVE, SIMON strikes a winning balance between its status as a landmark in mainstream representation and its desire to tell a story about the romantic pitfalls of adolescence. While quite generic in execution--the movie even engages in a bit of meta-commentary on Simon's blandness--it's the perspective from which we see these familiar beats that give the film its unique shape. SIMON is the same, yet different, and that's a good thing for us and for the movies as a whole.

Gee, I wonder if the handsome white boy will eventually be accepted by his friends, family, and community when he comes out of the closet in this rote, over-manufactured, big-studio movie?

I haven't seen something that felt so sappy by the end in awhile. Sappy's probably the wrong word because it was really genuine but whatever emotions.

Replicates both the triumphs and follies of teen movie classics with fidelity. What credit it loses as a result of a hackneyed and not-especially-funny script (the bulk of the authentic comedy is performance-centric) it almost makes up for with its genuinely empathetic spirit. Unchallenging in form and not exactly bold in its messaging, Love, Simon nonetheless offers its target audience a much needed beacon of humanity and compassion, which is surely worth more than what I could put into words.

There are a lot -- and I mean a lot -- of "coming of age" movies. Most of them, unfortunately, fall into that murky territory called "okay to not very good". And then, there's "Love, Simon", which is a very good movie on its own, and almost a masterpiece compared to some of its direct siblings, if for no other reason than this: "Love, Simon" is so thoroughly believable, and even when it veers into the exaggerated, it's way too good to hold that against it. So far, it's among the year's best.

Love, Simon bravely takes on the challenges of coming out, the affects of high school and how black mail and bullying can drastically alter the course of someones life. The acting was top notch thanks to Robinson and Langford and the rest of the supporting cast. A very engaging film perhaps the only downfall was it dragged a bit near the end instead of wrapping things up a little quicker and more efficiently. A great film with a powerful message.

Could have used some more comedy for me, and the vice principal character didn't work at all, but my theatre's audience reaction at the climax was pure ecstasy, and I'm happy to have experienced that. In terms of meaning, this is the "Black Panther" of the year for the underserved LGBTQ community.

I am a middle aged married guy so I'm probably not the target audience for this. This movie has quite a few flaws. I find it hard to believe that this is the average high school experience. Simon's family, bedroom and friends all seem to good to be true. The bullies seem over the top and I didn't think the emails showed what Simon sees. But the film overcomes these flaws with some good performances & a light straight forward story.

A cute, sweet, genuinely funny coming-out story with a great lead performance by up-and-comer Nick Robinson. It's very predictable, sure, but it's good enough that I'd still recommend it to anybody who's not a raging homophobe.

I saw this movie at a critics preview screening. I didn't go in with much expectations and I left really wanting to read the book and see more of the story. It is definitely young adult and has some flaws, but it was genuinely really funny and cute and sweet. It doesn't have the depth of Call Me By Your Name, but it gives a similar message much more clearly and accessibly.

It's decent. It has a couple of major problems that stop it from being great. The acting is good, there's just enough humor to give us an occasional chuckle, it's got a good heart--even if the execution might not be the best--and I do genuinely think it'll help some people who watch it. Representation matters, and if you see someone in a movie going through something you're dealing with, it can help you out. I wish Love, Simon were a great high school movie. [Full Review]
