'Love, Simon' may be an enjoyable coming-of-age film, but it misses the mark of being a great film due to the fact that it is too simple and uninspired. The characters felt cheaply written, with no real depth, and the protagonist was not as likable as one should be in this genre. The plot itself was rather predictable and had one of the most unrealistic endings that came off as ridiculous. The movies attempt to normalise the gay community and portray them as no different to the straight community, yet undermines itself by constantly stereotyping the LGBTQI community, again and again, ultimately contradicting the key message trying to be shown. I also find it rather misleading to portray a coming out narrative as so blasé and nonchalant, when for many individuals, this is certainly not the case. However, all of this is not too say this is a bad film. Many critics and people have expressed all the great things about this film, so I decided to focus more on the negatives. But, there are certainly good things worthy of mention. It has a great cast, with Nick Robinson, Alexandra Shipp and Jennifer Garner being the highlights in the film. The humor in it is fine, with many laugh-out-loud moments but not many of them are memorable (excluding a hilarious and cringe-worthy reference to Grindr). This film certainly attempts to appeal to the millennial generation, with it's many references to pop-culture such as Hamilton, Buzzfeed and Trump references; and it certainly succeeds to a certain extent; the audience will be able to relate to the society it reflects. However, the film ultimately lacks to create a relatable narrative; but rather an unrealistic and misleading one.
