What to know

critics consensus

The DUFF doesn't achieve teen-movie greatness, but offers enough of a postmodern twist on the genre to recommend -- and boasts typically great work from star Mae Whitman. Read critic reviews

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.

Audience Reviews for The DUFF

    No it isn't Mean Girls or even Easy A for that matter, but The DUFF won me over due to Mae Whitman and Robbie Amell's considerable charms. Not a classic, and the ending is a bit too cliché, but given the supremely low standards I had upon viewing, I was pleasantly surprised. Rating: 68

    Cute. I haven't read the book, so not devastated by what is apparently a big change from the original story. Decent young (non of whom I know) cast and a few laughs. It wasn't completely engrossing but I liked it enough to finish watching. Probably nice for tween girls and young teens to watch.

    What seems at first like just another ordinary teen movie turns out to be a lot better in a funnier second half that gets especially elevated by the great chemistry between Whitman and Amell, who are very charismatic and couldn't have been a more perfect choice for their roles.

    A high-school comedy classic. A hilarious and incredibly fun comedy with lots of heart and a great cast. It showcases the social awareness of teenagers, including technology and social media that have a huge impact of popularity and their social lives. This was just too much fun with some huge laughs. The cast have great chemistry together. Mae Whitman and Robbie Amell totally nail it, they play off one another wonderfully. Skyler Samuels and Bianca Santos are terrific.
