If not, then do yourself a favour and do not bother watching The DUFF. The DUFF is a painful movie. I lost count of how frequently I checked my watch, wondering when the pain would end and I could leave the theatre. That is a sure fire sign of a stinker of a movie. It is especially telling and bad when a movie is only a little longer than 90 minutes and that watch-checking behaviour starts about a half-hour in.
The DUFF is so clichéd that it can appeal only to teenagers, those who think like teenagers, or those who spend a great deal of time around teenagers. If you do not fall into one of these categories, then you are not in the target audience and you should give it a miss. Not recommended.
