Did You Know?

Trivia

Director Greg Berlanti revealed in an interview that there were clips of the "friend group" (Simon, Leah, Abby, and Nick) that were filmed without the actors' knowledge. In order to capture the authenticity of a group of friends beyond the confines of acting, the director would sometimes tell the actors to "cut" but have the cameras keep rolling. Many of these unscripted interactions of friends just being friends (including the dancing in the car scene) made the final cut. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, on the right side of the screen, it reads "#gtfo". This is an internet initialism for "get the fuck out." It is, in effect, telling audience members to leave the theater. See more »

A Must Watch! You just have to!
28 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I had been looking forward to this movie for a long time and I was not disappointed in the slightest. It was funny, heartfelt, and honest. I've been a big fan of Nick Robinson since his days on Melissa and Joey, but this was easily his best performance! I think he's extremely underrated and I can't wait to see what else he does in the future! Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Garner were great too as his parents! I loved the way this family was portrayed and it really made the movie work for me. All the actors playing his friends did an excellent job and Tony Hale as the vice principal was hilarious!

This film did not pull any punches and really struck the audience with its message. Be who you are! I think this as great a message as any! Also, this film actually made me feel something. Too often we have these dry, emotionless comedies released that just want to get a few cheap laughs. This movie found a perfect balance of humor and emotion. It gives exactly what we all want - an actual story with real relatable characters!

I would recommend this film to anyone. I was super impressed and will likely be seeing it again.
