In the movie soundtrack, a female rapper named Nova Rockefeller made one of the songs. She is the girlfriend of one of the greatest rappers ever, Tom Macdonald.
Geared to teens, but will resonate with anyone who remembers being a DUFF in high school.
This is a fun adaptation of the book by Kody Keplinger. There are many changes made from the source material but the film is still enjoyable. Mae Whitman is an absolute delight.
This movie interested me because of Mae Whitman who was amazing as the daughter of Sandra Bullock in "Hope Floats". Bella Thorne was great, too. It's a typical teenage movie and fir for the most part it's cute. Definitely not for kids what with the sex, etc, but not a bad movie overall .
A different twist on high school social nastiness. The twist only manifests several minutes into the film, so wait for it.
This is one turning worm that bites and hard.
This movie is not one of my favourites i found that the storyline was kind of childish with not the best acting if you like a silly mindless comedy i would recommend it but overall not one of the best movies i've seen the part I really disliked was when she dropped her two best friends for think they only hang out with her cause she was less “attractive” than them which i thought was not very smart your friends are always going to be there for you. I rate this movie a 2 out of 5. And would only recommend this to young teenagers. @movieslayer123 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
This is an amazing movie. If you are in high school, you can connect to this movie in so many ways. This movie has a good, yet predictable story line but is also hilarious at the same time. Bianca Piper is given the title of the duff by a former friend. You watch as she struggles to accept this title throughout the movie. You watch her grow as a character as she learns that there’s more important things in life than a title. You watch new romances and friendships grow while laughing along to this comedy. Overall predictable but also very funny movie and would recommend. 4/5 stars @EffyStonem of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library.
The Duff was a great movie in my opinion, it showed how a person can stand up for themselves and focuses on loving people for who they are, and not what they are labelled as. Bianca played a great role in this movie because getting rid of the “DUFF” label is not very easy. The movie included typical high school drama, the kind that usually happens in real life, which was also really cool. I would rate this movie a 4.5 out of 5. @BirdieBooks of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
The DUFF is a movie about a high school teenage girl named Bianca who finds out that she is the Designated Ugly Fat Friend (The DUFF), and this causes her senior year to turn upside down. Bianca is really sad to find out that she’s being used by people, who are trying to be with Bianca’s more popular friends. I really enjoyed watching this movie and if you liked the movie “Mean Girls”, then you will certainly enjoy this movie as well. This movie is perfect for people who like comedy, romance, and high school teen movies. I enjoyed this movie, it was funny, and it’s one of those movies that you would enjoy watching with your friends! I rate this movie a 4/5. @Khutoria of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
The DUFF is like any other high school teen movie, yet is still somewhat enjoyable. Bianca's senior year of high school get's turned upside-down, when she finds out she is known simply as the "DUFF'- Designated Ugly Fat Friend, in comparison to her friends. Aside from the horrible slang that the film attempts to make popular, this film definitely has some redeeming qualities. Bianca and Westley are actually interesting characters who you grow to care for. Though it has some awkward moments, but I'd definitely recommend this movie to watch with friends on a Saturday night. 4 Stars. @Ruby_Tuesday of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
This was such a funny and interesting movie that had me hooked from the beginning. I watched this film with a bunch of friends and we had a good laugh out of it. There were comical scenes as well and serious and heart touching scenes. The plot was nice as well. There was a good overall message and it included funny high school drama which could be related to. Overall, this was a good movie and i would totally recommend it to teenagers and young adults. I would give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars. @terrificbooklover of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board
I got a copy of the movie that was scratched, so I couldn't even watch the movie without it skipping I think the library should invest in getting a machine that cleans the scratched discs. I'm not happy with the DVD being scratched hopefully I can get a copy that's not scratched next time
a thoroughly enjoyable movie in the teen genre. a little bit Sixteen Candles, Mean Girls and Clueless all rolled into one. many laughs and humorous scenes made this an easy watch. just the facial expressions on Bianca made it worth while.
Great high school love story/comedy. Have a marathon with She's All That, Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, and Drive Me Crazy.
This movie is such pure, silly fun, with a great cast doing a good job with sharper-than-expected material. Based on Kody Keplinger's novel of the same name, it's lighter and funnier than the (excellent) book, without descending too deeply into cheesiness. It's worth watching just for the visual of a sobbing Allison Janney driving a lawnmower over her ex-husband's clothes while chugging white wine! (Also, true story: I tried to get a former roommate to go see this with me when it was released, and she refused. A full year later, she texted to tell me that she watched it and loved it! Vindication!)
Better than anticipated, with considerably more humour.
Warning: This film belongs to that absurd Hollywood tradition where the "ugly" girl is, for example, Leelee Sobieski wearing glasses.
(Note: It is an American movie for an American audience, so the US cultural event called "homecoming" is never defined or explained.)
This movie is false impression of what life is really like. This movie would not be good for really young people. This movie was humorous teen story. It exaggerated the love triangles. The story is weak. All the characters are insecure. They all are not self-defined. Peer pressure is very strong in all of them. They act without thinking first. They do not represent how to make wise decisions in life. They do not know how to prioritize what is truly important in life. The DUFF is the most sensible; but, they make it look like she is the dysfunctional person. They are actually dysfunctional. They likely dislike her because she makes them look so foolish. The DUFF in the end finally realizes she had it right the first time and goes back to what she should be. There is lots of discussions about sex. Teens are drinking in the movie too. The teenagers in the movie are very casual about sex and do new sexually activities very quickly. There is no questions about long term problems or use of birth control. I personally would like to see teens slow down the drinking, drugs and dating. I feel teens in the modern world have short childhoods. I would like to see their childhoods last longer.
The lead actress is neither fat nor plain, which undercuts the message the book had and the movie does not.
I saw this movie IN Wal-Mart and i wasn't sure if you have the movie of it so i wroth it down on the Walmart flyer and when i got home i went on my computer and checked if you have it and you did and i put a hold on it and the movie was really good i really liked it i think this is more for teenagers than for 12 year olds to watch witch i am part of the teens so i can watch this movie this movie is about a girl named Bianca who isn't very attractive and is labelled as the DUFF (or designated ugly fat friend) and she decides to prove the school that she is not the DUFF also Bella Thorne from Shake It Up is in this movie and she plays one of the mean girls in this movie named Madison and she tries to embarrass Bianca and make the other students make fun of her. And her best friend named Wes is played by Robbie Arnell who appears as Casey's boyfriend in "Life With Derek", Drew in the TV movie "Picture This" with Ashley Tisdale, and as Eric Khan in the Pretty Little Liars episode "The Kahn Game". and he is from cheaper by the dozen 2 when he was little back than and i have the dvd of the cheaper by the dozen 1 on vhs and 2 on DVD with Hilary Duff in the end Bianca goes to the homecoming dance and Madison and Wes are crowned queen and king, but Wes rejects Madison and gives the crown to Bianca and he kisses her Now, everyone likes Bianca and she is able to attend university with Wes .
A great book turned into a good movie. Great actors but lacked some classic one-liners to remember the movie by. A year from now I will forget the plot and will have to watch it again. There are worse things...
It was alright. I am not being stereotypical when I say that the book was better. The book was much better. I liked some bits in the book which the movie decided to leave out. However, the movie was not horrible. Its a nice, simple movie to watch in a sleepover or when you're feeling down. I do like the concept of the DUFF and the morals of this movie. I also really liked all the actors and actresses and thought that they played their part really well.
Terribly boring. A good teen movie doesn't make twenty pop culture references, but it's a CBS film and CBS has really shitty dialouge (sorry WB love ya, but CBS is terrible)
I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. Yes, it was predictable, but I would definitely recommend it!
I didn't compare this to Mean Girls, and enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
Maybe I'm a Duff ?
The reason she is a DUFF is that she's a bitter pill that rejects advice from her friends and then lashes out at them because she refuses to listen to them. They try to get her to wear decent clothing and she refuses. I don't know why they put up with her at all. But back to the movie you know exactly what's going to happen.
I'd tell you what happens, but watch any other teen movie and you'll know exactly what will happen and where.
