Reminded me of that special episode of Ellen a few months ago where she and Laura Dern et al celebrated the 20th anniversary of the historic 'coming out' episode.
More importantly, I liked this movie just fine, but the crowd behind me bloody *loved* it. Wild, positive response from the masses.
If you get a chance to see this amidst a gaggle of theatre gays and teen girls, definitely do that immediately. The kids ain't all staring at their smartphones and streaming/texting bullshit on a Friday night; they are at the moviehouse, enthusiastically cheering LOVE, SIMON. My heart is embiggened.
