Reason 3: Awesome Parents
The third reason you should go see Love, Simon is because of the on-screen parents. Let’s face it – there’s nothing worse than not being able to connect or at least like the supporting roles and characters in a film. While the focus remains on Nick Robinson’s Simon Spier, seeing Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel play parents you could really gravitate toward and appreciate playing mom and dad. The days of having cranky, old parents just don’t fit anymore. If you recall watching movies and TV shows back in the 90’s, there were always those out of touch parents which forced a major divide between parents-kids. It’s 2018 and more than ever parents-kids connect super strongly. If Blac Chyna’s mom on Instagram or Jim Jones’ mom following in her son’s footsteps in the music biz aren’t proof, then just take a look at parents like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian being popular parents.
