The DUFF
A content high school senior has her world shattered when she learns the student body knows her as The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends. Now, despite the words of caution from her favourite teacher, she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush and enlists a slick but charming jock to help reinvent herself. To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, she must find the confidence to overthrow the school's ruthless label maker and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone's DUFF.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Latoya Newman quote iconIt's a long climb up the social ladder.

Die Burger
Rozanne Els quote iconHumor is tienerfliek se troefkaart.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconAlthough perhaps not as edgy as Mean Girls (and certainly nowhere close to Heathers territory), the movie has enough to offer that one doesn't have to be a teenage girl to enjoy the journey.

Tomatometer quote iconThe 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.
