“The (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) DUFF.” Everyone knows or has one of them, but maybe you have never had the correct term (or courage) to describe one. Usually they are the “not so pretty” girl that pretty girls use to make themselves look better. This latest film hilariously pokes fun at that. Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a laid back high school senior whose self-image is decimated when she learns the rest of her classmates know her as “The DUFF” to her prettier, more popular friends. She sets out on a mission of reinvention to overthrow the school’s resident mean girl and label maker, Madison (Bella Thorne) and prove once and for all no matter what you look or act like everyone is someone else’s DUFF.
This film will go down in high school cinematic history. It is beyond funny! Eerily it reminds me of “She’s All That” meets “Mean Girls.” However, I must say Bella Thorne as “Madison” would easily give The Plastics a run for their money. I suppose Toby (Robbie Amell) will be her Freddy Prinze Jr./Shining Knight in the film ultimately. Still this will be worth seeing! You can catch “The DUFF” in theaters everywhere Friday, April 10, 2015!
