Everyone deserves a great love story, but for seventeen year old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life changing.

Loved this so much I saw it twice in the same weekend.

As a bonus, Simon Vs. was also made into one of my favorite movies of the year! Love, Simon is a mainstream queer rom com and I ADORED it.

Of course, some things in the book had to be changed to make it more "dramatic" and to make clear what is going on in Simon's mind. Also, the pop culture references certainly needed modification since those in the book are obscure (to say the least).

That fairground/Ferris wheel sequence, though, is absolutely over-the-top Hollywood!!

Not as good as the book, but still very well done.

A great coming of age love story. A young man seeks to find his love interest in high school (the hardest years) Meanwhile learning what friendship really means along the way. This story was so well written. The parents acting was very stiff and seemed forced, but I always find that with Jennifer Garner.

Well done movie version of a Young Adult book, "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda". Has the typical high school angst, with the twist of the main character being gay and not out yet. A sweet movie with a lovely ending.

This Is excellent movie it has excellent writing keeps you in tune in for the entire movie

I really enjoyed this movie and I liked how they used social media in this movie as well. Usually in a modern romantic comedy - I find it hard to accept the dramatic moments around social media - because a lot of what is done in the movie, seems borderline unforgivable to me. In older romantic comedies; if you did something wrong a group of people find out about it - but with the internet that stuff lives forever online. So I really appreciated that they never turned Simon into a character that I didn't want to root for - what he did was rude and probably not the best - but it was reparable. That made this movie good and fun to watch.

What makes it GREAT - is that finally a romantic comedy for a gay teenager - we need more intelligent one of these out there and about. Not every gay teen movie needs to be something dramatic that ends with deep introspection. Let's encourage movies like this - that illustrate hope and how being a teen is being a teen - gay or straight.

I'm predictably always Team The Book Was Better, and this was no exception. However, when the biggest strength of a book is its winning first-person narrative voice, I get how that's going to have to change for a movie. As a teen rom com movie, this works, and I think the move toward a more formulaic approach was intentional, setting up a cute queer romance with familiar trappings. But seriously. Go read the book if you haven't already.

First love in High School when you’re gay. I’m thinking High School is a tough time to “out” yourself. The emotional minefield of High School is awkward. And even tougher when you think your friends are true blue and are not judging you on your sexual preferences but you’re character. That doesn’t, obviously, happen a lot in real life. One critic said, “we all want to see our experiences validated, to have our stories deemed significant, to feel that we are not alone and that others can identify with what we’ve gone through.” True that.
