Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Love, Simon.
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.
RogerEbert.com - 9/10 by Sheila O'MalleyDirector Greg Berlanti, who has helmed a string of hit television shows as producer and writer, uses the familiar teenage romance genre to tell an LGBTQ story, and in so doing makes these tropes feel fresh, fun, entertaining.
Reeling Reviews - 9/10 by Laura Clifford...finely tuned situations and sharp dialogue delivered by a thoroughly charming cast that makes this "Simon" something special.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 9/10 by Dan LybargerLove, Simon succeeds because it rarely plays like grown-ups talking down to viewers.
Boston Herald - 9/10 by James VerniereAn overrated John Hughes version of distinctive art house entries Call Me by Your Name and Moonlight.
Schmoes Know - 9/10 by Mark EllisOne of my favorites of the year so far, without a doubt.
TheFilmFile.com - 9/10 by Dustin PutmanThe beauty of "Love, Simon" is in its astute, slice-of-life observances about family, friendship, and that delicate moment in every LGBTQ person's life when he or she must gather the courage to begin living as their authentic self.
