Did You Know?

Trivia

Director Greg Berlanti revealed in an interview that there were clips of the "friend group" (Simon, Leah, Abby, and Nick) that were filmed without the actors' knowledge. In order to capture the authenticity of a group of friends beyond the confines of acting, the director would sometimes tell the actors to "cut" but have the cameras keep rolling. Many of these unscripted interactions of friends just being friends (including the dancing in the car scene) made the final cut. See more »

Goofs

When Garrett originally announces the Halloween party at Bram's, he tells people that it's on Friday night. However, when Simon later invites Martin to the same party, he tells him it's on Saturday. See more »

Quotes

Ms. Albright: Don't "Hey, Ms. Albright" me. We're not friends. You're not going to braid my hair or paint my nails. Get your ass off the table now, you sweaty, hormonal virgins. You know what? You're about to be suspended for so long that by the time it's over, you're going to be the fat, bald, unhappily married, wildly mediocre nobodies you're destined to become.
Spencer: You can't talk to us like that.
Ms. Albright: Actually I can, 'cuz I just did. And you know why? Because you're just those two assholes who did that shitty ...

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. See more »

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. See more »

Fulfil the purpose
14 June 2018 | by CitizenKaneAAAAASee all my reviews

Important, relatable, anti-stereotype and all, but also cheesy, corny, and too bubbly. but you really can't make a film in this form to avoid those things, so this film is really for audiences who would enjoy this life-assuring kind of film. with that being said, i still have teary eyed at some scenes because i can relate to it to some extent but also combined with some cringeness attack because of the dialogue and all. could it better? i think it could, but that would kill the purpose of the film, so i'm glad that the film was made this way, but it's still not my thing.
