filippaberry84 I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.
kz917-1 This adaptation of a Teen book is the classic ugly duckling turns swan story with really great laughs.Bianca learns she is the DUFF to her two gorgeous best friends. DUFF is Designated Ugly Fat Friend.What follows is Bianca learning who she really is, what friends mean, and with confidence you can handle any situation.The entire cast keeps the zingers flowing in every scene but the master may just be Ken Jeong. He is hilarious!

But when it was released on DVD & Bluray and I saw part of the trailer on demand on Comcast I became interested in seeing this movie. I was pleasantly surprised before I watched it to find out from my sister that it's based on a book. The Film is about a chick named Bianca who goes to a party with her friends one night to find out from her neighbor Wesley that she is a new label called a Duff. Designated, Ugly, Fat, Friend. She is the approachable who guys use to get close to her friends, people ask her questions about other topics instead of her. The film is one those teen movies that come out every few years, I believe the last one we had was Prom with Aimee Teegarden. Unlike that movie though this one is actually good. It has a few clichés of course but I find clichés to be good(sometimes) and here it's alright because already in a film with a good script that allows its actors to shine in their roles. Like Robbie Amell and Mae Whitman, Robbie plays the jock who of course the main chick is falling for even though in the beginning she doesn't like him. This is Ari Sandel's first directorial debut, okay well not really he's directed another film but from what I can see this is probably his best film out of the two. He has a nice style for character and setting. The Duff was a nice surprise for me, and I was glad I rented it was totally worth it. It has great characters, nice script, good acting and is hit out of the park with good direction. Even if it does have a few clichés, I'm giving The Duff a three and a half out of five.
kami-41766 The term Duff - I have never heard of that term. 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). Which is the friend that is less attractive than the others in that particular CLICK. It 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 very nice to look at. I think a lot of teenage girls would really like this movie.
kosmasp A teenage movie that obviously will play out one way or another depending on whether you like those or not. It's pretty witty and it has some genuine jokes in it (not to mention some very funny supporting cast to boot with). The story itself is as in many cases, very predictable. You know who the real "target" of affection is going to be.But the movie is able to win one over, if you buy into the whole light heartiness of the movie. The movie as some before it is very self aware and there are many in jokes in this. It's also refreshing to see the main girl being a horror movie fan. It's also interesting to see how much PG-13 movies have evolved over the years and how much more is allowed to be said in them. All in all, a lot of fun
