Story


Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body knows her as 'The DUFF' (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends (Skyler Samuels & Bianca Santos). Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher (Ken Jeong), she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby (Nick Eversman), and enlists Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself. To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow the school's ruthless label maker Madison (Bella Thorne) and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone's DUFF.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..charismatic leads lend heart to a lively but watered-down YA romance..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]
“..a teen comedy that manages to not only depict more realistic teens in a typical romantic comedy setting, it manages to score tons of laughs in the process..”
by Mike Reyes [Cinema Blend]
