Trivia

Although the movie is titled "Love, Simon," it was actually an adaptation of the book "Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda." The movie originally had the same name as the book, but it was too long to say, hence the name change. 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 »

Alternate Versions

For the theatrical release in India, while the censor board themselves outright deny this; a majority of cinemas around the country pulled the film from cinemas after reports broke that the CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) had banned the film. 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 »

"You get to exhale now, Simon"
1 June 2018 | by Tomas_buffaySee all my reviews

I finally watched this and it was perfect, this is beautiful, and very necessary! My favorite scene was by far Jennifer Garner's speech, that if you watched the movie, you probably know what i'm talking about. There's probably just a few little things I didn't like, especially some of the classic topics and stereotypes that this genre of film usually has, but still, it's amazing.

We need more films like this. Fun, heartwarming, and just fantastic all around!!

Also, a reminder if this wasn't enough: Be yourself. Be happy. You deserve it.
