Have seen TWO special screenings of the movie and I absolutely loved it. It's just a great movie, and the subject matter happens to be gay. It appeals to a wide variety of ages, genders, and sexual orientations! And the cast of the movie is diverse as well! It's the gay movie I've been waiting for my whole life and I have so much love and appreciation for having seen it. Whether you're gay, straight, or in between, you will absolutely love this movie! <3

The gay movie I've been waiting for since forever!Reviewed byderand-89867Vote: 10/10
There have been plenty of teen romantic comedies over the years and, being a cynical man in his forties, I have long since outgrown them and do my best to steer clear, knowing that I am definitely NOT the target audience for this type of film, therefore I shouldn't really be commenting on it. Nowadays, films are doing their best to be 'inclusive' and 'diverse' in their casting/storylines. Many times this feels forced and comes across as simply a gimmick to drum up a little extra word-of-mouth to help promote the film. 'Love, Simon' so could have been one of those, but I'm glad to say that it's not.
A teenage boy (Simon, believe it or not!) is coming to the end of his senior school and leads a pretty normal life, apart from the fact that he's secretly gay. However, his plans of 'coming out' in his own time (possibly at college) are thrown upside down when he starts engaging in online correspondence with another - apparently gay - student. This leads to him rethinking his plans, so to speak.
It's nice to see this kind of story given some sort of big-screen treatment. If you went to school back in my day (80s/90s) then everyone was heterosexual and no one was gay. Statistics prove again and again that that is impossible and 'no one' is gay simply because no one is going to commit what (again, back in my day) was 'social suicide' by 'coming out.' Now - thankfully - I understand that school-age children/young adults are much more at ease which letting people know who they really are without fear of negative reprisal (although 'Love, Simon' does show that side of people's reaction to such news from a fellow student).
It's a bit of a 'who-done-it' really. I know I shouldn't, but I couldn't help but think of 'Scream' while I watched it. Although, technically, the films are nothing alike, 'Scream' makes you guess who the killer is from a cast full of potential young suspects, whereas 'Love, Simon' sees if you can figure out who the other student Simon is speaking to all the way through (for the record, I got the answer wrong in both films!).
The young cast are all believable as friends and their banter is the type you'd expect among youngsters, plus there are plenty of swipes at the 'youth of today' that us 'oldies' will enjoy. The only real 'weak link' in terms of the casting was the one main representative of the teachers at the school, the vice principal. He was just way too wacky to be believable. The way he behaved just wasn't how a teacher would (or at least, once again, I'm going off my own experience back in the day - feel free to correct me if this is 'normal' for a teacher!). In my opinion he was more like Krusty the Clown from 'The Simpsons' than someone who was supposed to educate. Plus I'd have probably ended the film about ten minutes earlier than it did - you'll probably see where I mean if you watch it.
But, those were just minor gripes, the film is excellent and uplifting, even for an old cynic like myself. School life wasn't like this in my day and, if this is the way it's going, it's definitely a step in the right direction.

Love Simon is about teen Simon coming out as gay and his struggles in doing so. We find out very early in the film that Simon is gay however he has told no-one, we see his frustration as a 'straight male' throughout the start of the film with his dads inappropriate jokes and his previous straight relationships. We see Simon living a 'nornal' teenagers life with his three best friends Leah, Abby and Nick. Near the start of the film we see the school social media group chat appear with a message from a boy who goes by 'Blue' telling us that he is gay but feel he cannot tell anyone. Simon is in a very similar position decides to anonymously email blue under the name jaque and they bond over their similarities as gay men who have never told anyone. however after a number of emails back and forth a less popular school kid Martin finds the emails and screenshots them. Hr continues to use these screenshots to blackmail Simon to help him get together with Abby. This makes simon make some really importand desicisions through out the film.
Love Simon is filmed with the best of intentions of helping others in real life who may be gay to come out as who they really are. It eventually shows the positives of coming out hoever shows the difficulties along the way. it also covers how unfair many are towards gay people and our poor social sytem of acceptance. The acting from Nick Robinson was outstanding and very believable while the rest of the cast performed well Natasha Rothwell stole the comedy aspect of the film being the only actress to really make me laugh with her fantastic delivery. The film is set in a stereotypical american school which i quite like as its somthin we can all relate to some way or another and gives for a easy to watch film. The film covers the relationships between Simon and his friends, this creqtes intence seens and conflict whoch is yet another hook on why to watch.
Firstly for all the good jokes fron natasha bothwell there were plenty of typical simple american jokes such as the princeipal who kept making bad jokes which were unrealistic to be said in frofront pf students. Also the teo cahracters which were supposed to be the "bullies" werejust cringeworthey and had no real motive or even connection to Simon himself. The film also had the characters saying "what the f" instead of sweading which no one over the age of 12 says (the main character being in his late teens) even after that he starts tp swear later in the movie. So the reason for npt swaering at the start is beyond me and gave fpr a fake anrealistic feelling thrpught. Finally Nick was really inconsistent through out at first the funny happy guy half way throught the stupid gullible guy and at the end the over reacting seripus guy, i ouldent quite place him 2hich made him less relatable as a character.
Overall this film wasent bad at all and sent a really good message across the screen. However the undeveloped characters such as the bullies and Nick and the cringe amd bad american jokes has to be taken into condieration. I give "love, simon" a 6/10.
