20 Highest-Grossing Teen Romance Movies
11. Love, Simon
Love, Simon is the kind of movie that shouldn’t have been nearly as groundbreaking as it was. It’s a movie about a high school student who comes out of the closet and falls in love, and it’s incredibly sweet. It broke ground as the first gay movie of its kind to come from a major studio.
The film is sweet and charming, filled with all the standard quirks and tropes the teen romance movie genre is known for. Even as it broke new ground, it felt deeply familiar. Love, Simon is a really sweet movie, and it earned $40 million for all that sweetness.
