Did You Know?

Trivia

Jennifer Garner's "exhale" speech wasn't originally included in the film: there was just one 'parent scene', and a scene with the dad. When Jennifer became interested in the role of Emily, she asked director Greg Berlanti for a scene that has her connect with Simon, so they built it again and wrote what would become essentially the message of the movie.

Goofs

When Simon eats with his family, Simon's phone says that it's 3:20, yet when he goes outside to read Blue's email a moment later in the patio, it's pitch black dark. 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 »

Cute but... cheesy?
29 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

As a lover of LGBT movies on someone who has experience the coming out process, I felt this movie was way too far fetched and slightly cringey. The ending was so unbelievable unrealistic and out there what I was hard pressed to keep watching. Especially having read the book and how smoothly the events unfolded in the written version, I feel like the film adaptation was not entirely believable, and mostly just cheesy.

That being said, I would still recommend people watch it as some might enjoy it. The protagonist was charming and cute as hell, and the whole thing was pretty uplifting.
