Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Love, Simon.
Cinema Sight - 10/10 by Wesley LovellWhile it may be a Gen-Z era coming out story, it easily resonates for older generations.
Us Weekly - 10/10 by Mara ReinsteinHow refreshing to see a teen boy on a big screen that's not a sleepy-eyed, monosyllabic jerk just hoping to get laid.
Den of Geek - 10/10 by Laurence LermanWith a modern soundtrack and a diverse cast, Love, Simon is the kind of movie many people wish they had growing up.
Movies4Kids - 10/10 by Jo BerrySimon's fears, feelings, relationships and traumas are all real and feel true, and are portrayed in an entertaining, infectious and charming way.
Tribune News Service - 10/10 by Katie Walsh"Love, Simon" exists on a spectrum between "Lady Bird" and "Mean Girls." It has the warm winsomeness of "Lady Bird" and the crackling humor of "Mean Girls," playing with the high school archetypes that film captured so well.
Screen-Space - 9/10 by Simon FosterFar too many contemporary teen comedies anoint themselves as 'Hughes-ian', desperate to align...with the smart, sweet, insightful teen movies of the genre's golden years, the 80s. Finally, a film earns the accolade.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter TraversGreg Berlanti's groundbreaking gay romcom is an exuberant gift, a John Hughes movie for audiences who just got woke and the first mainstream studio release to put a closeted teen front and center.
The Associated Press - 9/10 by Sandy CohenLove, Simon is a universal story, even if you’re not a gay teenager. The challenge of figuring out who we are and standing comfortably in that identity might begin in high school, but often lasts a lifetime.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Richard RoeperAs the romantic mystery develops, the light comedy keeps us amused.
We Live Entertainment - 9/10 by Ashley MenzelLove, Simon is so full of heart and emotion that you can't help but fall in love with it.
