| I didn't want to go.
I was afraid this would be so sticky sweet I'd end up in a sugar coma. I was pleased to be completely wrong. I identified with Simon (even though I finished high school in '84). The fear of losing your family and friends makes the secret you carry that much more of a burden. This movie helps us all find peace in ourselves and teach us to celebrate our unique traits. Put this down as a feel good classic that will endure. I'm happy I went.

Trivia

On the DVD commentary, Greg Berlanti, Isaac Aptaker, and Isaac Klausner discuss the fact that it was surprisingly difficult to settle on the musical that Simon and some of his friends are rehearsing during much of the movie. In the source novel, the musical was Oliver!, but the producers couldn't get the rights to that. For a while, their solution was to have the screenwriters work on an original musical adaptation of the classic teen romance movie Say Anything. Some of that musical was actually written before they decided instead to go with Cabaret, which the rightsholders said was allowed as long as they didn't show the Sally Bowles character in a top hat (which would have suggested that the high school was performing the movie or revival versions of the show instead of the original 1960s stage musical). Berlanti, Aptaker, and Klausner also appreciated the resonances between Cabaret and Love, Simon--both contain closeted gay male characters coming to terms with their sexuality.


Quotes

Simon: Hey, Bram, it's me, Jacques. Bram, I'm Jacques. Hey, Barack, it's me, Jacques. Why did I pick Jacques?


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.


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.


Alternate Versions

The home video release features two deleted scenes: In the first, Abby talks to Simon about her interest in Nick, but Simon concocts a story about Nick having cheated on his previous girlfriend. In the second, Nick takes Simon to a gay bar to help him come to terms with his identity where the two are eventually kicked out for being underage. When Simon returns home he's confronted by his parents for disappearing for so long.
