Movie Review - The Duff

A high school senior instigates a social pecking order revolution after finding out that she has been labeled the DUFF - Designated Ugly Fat Friend - by her prettier, more popular counterparts.


I have never heard of the term "THE DUFF". Maybe it exists in society or maybe it was something that Hollywood made up. I'm not positive on that.

So The Duff translates to (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) according to the internet. Which is the friend that is less attractive than the others in that particular CLICK.

This movie touches on some very real LIFE facts hidden in the story. CYBER Bullying, Social Media, Clicks, Stereotyping, Awkwardness and just the meanness of high school in general.

I felt like this movie was a cross between She's All That and Easy A. It was cute and funny. But it was very predictable.

Mae Whitman was a great choice for THE DUFF. She is great with one liners and usually plays the girl that is a bit odd, different or just does her own thing. And she always plays it well.

And of course this movie has Robbie Amell who is attractive and nice to look at. I think a lot of teenage girls would really like this movie.

5 out of 10 stars

See you at the movies......
