Idk he really only imagined maybe 4 guys? He was guessing, could it be him - Is he gay too? Landscaper - Simon is attracted to him. He's a very attractive college aged guy. Girls would be saying he's hot too. Bram - gave clear hint with the Oreos Very attractive male. Diner guy - Attractive, seemed possible with what he was saying and how nice he was. Charming. Theater kid - Attractive and also seemed it could be him with some of his stories aligning to Blues. Am I missing anyone? 4 attractive people is hardly "anybody" He had no interest in his friend Nick, or in Martin. In fact, when he was looking for the "Game of Thronnes fanatic" he was noticeably not attracted to any of them. I think that the diner guy he was really not all that into, but he kinda got a vibe and was going with it. He was not that into him. Landscaper was a physical attraction, which is just normal. Not like wow you're physically attracted to someone you must want to f anything you see. Bram and theater kid he seemed to feel the most relatable to and into the most. Probably Bram the most and not just sayig that. I know you're not saying anything bad so don't take it the wrong way. Just responding. I somewhat do know what you mean but its a misinterpretation and just missing important things. The movie did a great job at keeping me guessing. I pretty much went along with all of Simon's thoughts. I had eliminated Bram. It was a great surprise. I didn't favor anyoe particular but loved that it was Bram anyway. If you don't know that the McDonald's brothers were already turning their idea into a reality then you have your head up your rear. I know you were just trying to defed Kroc and look smart, next time try harder. She wasn't. Casper got top billing. That is the way to tell who is the lead role. Easy way to get caught by police. Kids panhandling with no parents around. It's not a Disney movie. We don't know what happens with Pete. I think there's reason to believe that Pete is with them, by the way Mister is so happy and productive. Maybe it is just that his mother is clean and being a good mother. Maybe him and Pete don't see eachother again. But their tale was one of survival. He also protected Pete and taught him important lessons. How was he invasive? Inappropriate? Not really. He was trying to relate to his students. Some of the stuff was just for comedic purposes and it worked. I think a fair amount of time had passed. His friends realized why it was so hard for him, as he was getting bullied by the jocks and stuff. It made sense for why he was afraid and trying to protect himself. I think it was longer than it seems in the movie. He ignored them for quite a while in the first place, then he finally faced the noise. Eventually his friends forgave him as they sympathized, plus the fact that it didn't sabotage their lives in any way so they could get over it. Abby and the 1 friend, blanking on his name, ended up happy together. The other friend (blanking on name) ends up realizing why Simon wasn't really into her and she can finally be at peace with that. It was certainly reasonable. The one friend was in love with the other, yet he makes up a bunch of lies to keep them a part. He even tries to fix up the friend with some loser that none of them like. That's seriously messed up. He also got really flakey with them, ignoring them for a while and not talking it out. At that age everyone is changing and people grow apart. Basically it seemed he changed. He broke the trust of his friends They wouldn't have cared he was gay, they were best friends. But you can understand Simon too, just buying himself time hoping things would somehow work out. At first I felt similar to the way you did, as you really empathize with Simon and what he's going through. But you have to see the other side of how he broke his friends trust and really did a shitty thing to them. And it seems like its a short-time frame but he ignores his friends for quite a while instead of owning it. Dealing drugs and committing robberies since he was a kid. During the time when it was set in the late 80s you could make a killing selling crack. So many of his neighbors were buying crack, it was an epidemic. It really shows how a young black kid could get sucked into that life. View all replies >
