The DUFF

Really good and enjoyable.

Frumpy high-school senior Bianca (Mae Whitman) has a rude awakening when she learns that her classmates secretly know her as the DUFF — designated ugly fat friend — to her prettier and more popular pals. Desperate to reinvent herself, Bianca enlists the aid of Wesley (Robbie Amell), a charming jock. In order to save her senior year from becoming a complete disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow a judgmental student (Bella Thorne) and revolutionize the school’s social order.

Sometimes Hollywood has trouble accurately portraying high school, and it’s painful to watch. But I thought that this movie represented high school relatively accurately. It pointed out that the stereotypical groups and cliques of high school have more blurred boundaries in reality. The students actually carried backpacks and wore normal clothes. The dialogue was realistic. I also love Mae Whitman. She’s amazing, and she was cast really well for this role. Also, Robbie Amell is hot. And while the movie is relatively predictable, it was still quite enjoyable.
