Storyline

Bianca 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. Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher, she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby, and enlists Wesley, 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 and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone's DUFF.

An excellent example of a modern teen comedy.
5 July 2015 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

A film that was expected not surprise, but he did happily. Fun, shows modern and contemporary themes with a comic and natural touch. It presents an interesting terminology. It is predictable in parts of the plot and has clichés, but still the good parts of the film stand out more.

Mae Whitman provides a lovely, funny and intelligent character, Robbie Amell was interesting and fun too. One possible bright future for both. Allison Janney always great.

A nice movie with several moments to laugh and better than the other trash teen movies. I enjoy it a lot. 8/10
