Goofs

At the Halloween party, after Leah puts the "Ronaldo" label back on Nick's shirt, the position the label is in on the shirt changes in each shot. Leah puts it a little bit above the number 7 on Nick's shirt, but in the next shot it covers the top of the number. It then moves back up later on. 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 »

This was completely denied by the board who in fact revealed that the film had in fact been passed with an 'A' rating (for adults aged 18+ only) with two censorship cuts. What was cut from the film has not as of yet been revealed.The See more »

User Reviews

 
How Refreshing!

Love, Simon is a very touching, heartwarming story about a relatable teenager with a big secret. This film is entirely relatable for anyone who has been in high school. Viewers don't need to share Simon's exact problems in order to enjoy this film. That's what makes it so special! The characters are all well-thought out and the story is very funny, interesting, and emotional. This is a film for everyone!
