        If you watched and loved the original “Will & Grace” series, there is plenty to get excited about with their return. The writing is as witty as it ever was, and the characters haven’t changed much despite the lengthy hiatus and the inevitability of aging (at least outside of Hollywood). But this also may be something of a double-edged sword, if only because the return of these characters basically dismisses the resolution of the original series. If you truly cared about these characters during their first run, the need to return them to a dysfunctional state in order to create the necessary drama for the series feels a bit lazy.

        I’ll admit, I was skeptical of Love, Simon upon first viewing the trailer. Arriving on the heels of last year’s award season, which included a LGBT coming-of-age drama and an independent high school comedy, the release of Love, Simon felt perfectly timed, whether coincidental or opportunistic. Ironically, I found myself enjoying Love, Simon more than either of the award-season films it resembles. There is a sincerity to this film which aligns it closer to a John Hughes film than any number of other imitators we’ve had since the 1980s.
