A fun and cute film, with mostly interesting characters and an engaging story. It mainly falls short with the writing, usually sacrificing good writing in order to try and sneak in a laugh or a trendy reference. Over-sexualizing teachers (such as having them yell about sex and getting their tubes tied) as well as forcing in words like "lit", really take you out of the film and wonder what they were thinking. There are also some extremely aggravating scenes, which are simply dumb and make little sense from a logical standpoint. In a world full of Moonlights and Call Me By Your Names, this one falls very short.

Shoots itself in the foot often.Reviewed byryansalamenceVote: 6/10
If the answer to that is yes, then let me pose this question. Have you actually seen any other movies? Because it seems to me that the only thing we're in agreeance on is that it is, by definition a movie, in the most liberal of terms.
To give this film a 10/10 solely for the message of the film is ridiculous in itself but to do so without even realizing how backwards and redundant that message truly is, is also equally as preposterous. To feel any form of connection to this "Product" is as ridiculous as saying "my microwave has done so much for Gay Culture and is the most important film of the year!" (it's only March BTW). If anything my afore mentioned statement is actually false as your microwave will do more for gay culture than this movie by not caring if you're gay and providing actual entertainment. Because watching the run time is exactly what I did for this piece of crap but on a microwave it's not nearly as long.
This Movie is set in a college application brochure where multi cultural caricatures come to life. These characters are indeed as one dimensional as the paper they're printed on and serve to show how Hollywood is trying to cash in on every form of culture there is, this time being the gay culture. No character development happens throughout the entire movie, The main character is an arrogant man, an unkind man who willingly deter's other peoples "love" for his own lust like some asshole cupid (he certainly is a baby). He has no revelation in his ways and at the end of the movie continues being an arrogant jerk. No sense of consequence is apparent for his actions whatsoever, and his friends take him back instantly. Just like sex the build up is long just for seemingly two minute climax, or at least that's what I can infer from my INCEL life. The conflict in this movie concludes as soon as it starts with the screenwriter seemingly trying to avoid tension or excitement any way he can. And since we're talking about "the message of the movie" I refuse to include being gay as a conflict as today in a liberal arts town where this movie takes place, it really shouldn't and isn't a problem. Movies like this where ther fear of being "exposed" as gay only create fear for people in similar situations. We have movies like Call Me By Your Name to show us that sexuality really doesn't matter anymore, it's the characters and the love which are the important parts, the parts that this movie glosses over. It treats being gay in the same light as Broke back Mountain but with a Happy ending which is, similar to my repeating of this word, REDUNDANT. And the way he gets back into his circle of friends is equally as gross, by somehow out Spaceying Kevin Spacey he just says "I'm gay" and boom, everything's better. Let me ask you this, do you really want some bull-crap fantasy movie made just to make everyone feel better, the studio hiring cheap TV Producers to direct; lining their pockets and audience members experiencing no emotional connection to lifeless characters besides "HES GAY AND I LIKE GAY PEOPLE THEREFORE I LIKE HIM"? Because by supporting this, these are the types of movies we will continue to get.
On a more technical note
Directing - Bad Tv B-role stuff, over lighten to a ridiculous amount, no interesting shots or emotive cinematography, actors performances apparently not important to director either?
Writing - Boring, unrealistic as they fall in love over the course of 12 emails, this is Charles Manson and Crazy wife levels of pen-pal-manship right here. At first the writing made some of the "twists" feel satirical because they were to obvious already to be revealed at the end of the damn movie.
Acting - Main character has no charisma, think Ansel Elgort in Baby Driver with no interesting supporting characters or dynamic directing to support him. Also zero vocal control; very difficult to emote when you sound exactly the same in every situation. The only antagonist, theater kid (besides conservative America) really is the only somewhat decent actor which is weird as why are you making me care more about the manipulator than the manipulated.
Soundtrack - Bland Tangerine Dream Ripoffs mixed with ridiculously overplayed hit songs
overall, Three out of ten. While I feel this movie is harmful for most viewers, maybe an older homophobic audience can get something out of this but this movie is just studio bait. Baiting a gay audience masterfully and therefore I will tell these Master Baiters to leave us alone with either fake reviews on IMDB or appealing to the lowest common denominator on IMDB... which I guess is me; since I did watch it in theaters. P.S, IM GAY, but that doesn't justify anything really does it, Hidden Screenwriter Kevin Spacey?
I had to see this movie. It reminded me of...me. I had a lot of great friends in high school. I had girlfriends. But I had one huge ass secret. I was gay. I didn't have the strength to come out in high school, but God did I want to. I graduated in 93' so things are much different now, but still very scary to come out I'm sure. I am out now and my life has been different ever since. Better ever since. I did not lose a single friend when I came out. I gained a new family of friends. I encourage anyone younger, or older, that is not out to do so. BUT, only when you are ready. You'll know when the time is right.
This might just be one of the most important movies of the year. I believe there needs to be more movies like this. Being gay is HARD enough and kids commit suicide far too often dealing with it and other issues. Everyone deserves to love. Everyone deserves to be happy. Please go see this movie! Peace!
