    I understand that one of the major points in the movie is about figuring out who Blue is, but I feel like if they had left it as a mystery to who Blue was in the movie, I would be fine with it, as that leaves us, the viewers to figure out who Blue would possibly be.

    Personally my biggest problem with the movie that was in the book leah and abby got together instead of abby getting together with that other dude. Also in the second book you find out that leahs bi which if they included that then there wouldve been more diversity. And leah and simon little sister which really helps the story. But Love, Simon is really great movie, is one of the better romance movies ive seen and has some of the best lgbtq representation ive seem. Its also really realistic and relatable(especially to me😏🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈)

    You said “Senior Year Of COLLEGE” he’s in high school. He said when he GETS to college, he’ll be gay and proud.
    Also, he said he was either drunk, or he was getting a little crazy, and that’s why he kissed the girl.

    THIS is why I don't like the movie. If anyone has read the books, they know that Blue (and his non-superhero self) is totally not interested in relationships, but Simon being blind thinks he has a thing for the girl best friend. Which makes the ending with a grownup teacup ride (IDK the name, they spin a lot) a lot more impactful, cause it's literally the last ride open, last ticket, everything is closing up and nobody is there. Movie was like... what?

    I get that it was a joke, but saying that "you have so many friends that are gay that you are the one who's nervous to come out ?"... Hell to the no. People get killed every day for being gay, some countries arrest you, some have the death penalty on homosexuality, and even in "safe" countries, you can get attacked by homophobic scum because you're holding your boyfriend's hand. Please don't go there when you're trying to joke, cause this is not funny at all for the people that are actually living this life.
    As for the reveal in Love, Simon, it is a little cheap, but there's no way a closeted gay guy will flirt with another guy at a party since he is closeted. I think they both suspected the other one to be the email sender, but where to afraid of the possibility that he wasn't to actually act on it. And that's probably that same fear that led Blue to solidify the closet he was in by kissing the random girl.

    This movie was low-key trash only because the friends were so inconsiderate and the guy Martin was awful. And because Blue was played by Lonsdale. Nick was the only good thing about Love, Simon.

    This film is definitely like a “a film for the gay dudes that may be struggling” but it’s still easy for straight people to understand and digest.
    Black people can be Jewish and he was also Jewish in the book.
    It wasn’t obvious but my gay little brain could tell that there was subtle flirting going on between Simon and Blue. Gays just can’t flirt.
    Blue kissing the girl at the party wasn’t a cop out. I’m an open gay guy but I’ve definitely kissed girls at parties when we’ve both been drunk and Blue also being closeted probably wanted a kiss with a girl to strengthen his “straight” facade.
    The ending was a bit of a “really?” though. It wasn’t realistic for a closeted dude to just pop out and reveal himself.

    I thought it was interesting that they got Leah to fall in love with Simon instead of with Nick for the movie (in the book, she liked Nick). I guess it makes sense though, that whole narrative wasn’t all that important to the story so it makes sense to make her be more involved with Simon.
    All I’m mad about is the scene with Bram making out with the gal at the party instead of just not having that part at all like in the book. The book still had a twist, since most of the book Simon thinks Blue is this dude named Cal from drama club, so when they found out it was actually quiet but cute Bram with the “soccer calves” it would be this huge twist. Idk

    The film is based off of the book, Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda. In the book the relationship doesn't seem as rushed and Bram is the love interest in it as well. Because it was made into a film they would have to change a few things and cut some of the moments Simon and Blue have during the emails. In my opinion it would have worked better as a short one season tv show so we can see more character development. Also, I think the reason why they had Simon think it was Bram early on was so that they could have people who are fans of the book have more moments seeing Bram and getting excited. And with the party scene, mate, the glasses thing was so them flirting and the fact that Bram talked to him in the first place when he could hang out with anyone else. There is also a scene in the start of the film where Simon walks off to the bathroom to see if he has an email from blue and both of the people who have a crush on him, Bram and Leah, look at him while he leaves while everyone else does their own things, which I just think is a nice detail to put in. Either way, I love both the film and the book and Simon's and Bram's relationship in it and all of the things they have throughout so you would be able to work it out yourself who Blue is. Sorry for having this be so long, I got carried away.

  • Megan Tan

    I think that though the movie did a great job in general, some parts (such as Bram with the girl at the party, the ferris wheel scene, and leah liking Simon) were dramatised to make the story more straightforward and create more of a climax, thus making it easier to convey a compelling story in the short amount of time a movie has as compared to the book. I think that's why I forgave the movie for not being as well developed as the book, even though I prefer the book, and it's ending, a whole lot more. Of course, that is not to deny that the movie could not have been improved, its just that we also have to acknowledge why some of the story changed the way it did. I do agree that movie Simon's tactic is one that puts blue on the spot, and puts pressure on him to come out publicly, which is not cool, but I'm also glad that in this situation, Simon put himself in the spot more than anyone else as a romantic gesture, and he ultimately left it up to blue whether or not he wanted to also put himself out there.

    Its not that the people who made the movie wanted a twist, its based off a book called Simon vs the homosapians agenda. So no, the movie didnt want a twist, thats how it happened in the book, just the ending of the book and movie are different. The reveal isnt the same its much more private in the book. Would 10/10 recommend the book

    in the book, he doesn't ask it to be public and Bram is more ok with coming out and the party thing doesn't happen either and like Bram sends Simon a t shirt with a card with his real number written but Simon decides not to call him and to instead meet him in person first. And he never suspects Bram or anyone else. His only suspicion is Cal who turns out to be bisexual and he calls Bram Cute Bram and does talk about how cute he is but he never directly says hey guys maybe Bram is blue!!

    I feel like it's pretty normal for closeted guys to make out with girls at parties. Plus they all go to school together, he could have known her or even hooked up with her before. In the books, Blue knows who Simon is already because 'Jacques a dit' is 'Simon Says' in French. lol. But I think here he didn't, so while he was flirting with Simon he wasn't going to out himself to a guy he didn't know was also gay.

    The book was better (Obviously). Blue wasn’t even at the party. And I agree, the Ferris wheel was manipulative. It’s the kind of thing guys think as a ‘grand gesture’ when it really is putting pressure on someone. That’s what Martin or whatever his name is, does. But Simon actually just sends a private email to blue and even then to just meet at the carnival. And he meets Bram after he gets off the Ferris wheel. And in the book it’s more of ‘at xx time Simon was no longer ‘single’ on Facebook and by xxx Bram was no longer single either.’ Which fits an already mostly epistolary story. (Also Simon gets So Grounded unlike in the movie)
    My problem was with how they portrayed Leah. They made her seem like she is in love with Simon but really she was only upset because her best friends were ignoring her and doing things without her. She had so many things going on in her life that Simon being the oblivious ass he is, doesn’t notice. Also in the second book ‘Leah off the beat’ she is bi.
    And and maybe you ARE living in the future because I’m still in the closet.

    actually, the thing that happened at the end of the movie was talked about by someone on tumblr. they compared martin asking out abby vs simon asking out blue. they said how martin publicly putting abby on the spot was super manipulative, and also made her seem like a bad person for telling him no. but, if blue had never shown up, simon is the one who would’ve been embarrassed. no repercussions would have come to blue if he chose not to reveal himself. it was a cute little dramatic romantic ending for a film, and i loved it.
