Every group of friends has one
Wit and charm matter, and The DUFF has a good deal of both. The cast will be stars, the gags will be immortal, and you'll still be watching this movie years from now. - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
In this heartwarming teenage romantic comedy we follow a precocious young woman who realizes that she is the DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) among her beautiful group of friends. Using the device of a newspaper column to tell her story, we watch as she goes through the famous 5 Stages of Grief on her path to discovering that being a DUFF is simply what you make of it.
Starring Mae Whitman, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Ken Jeong, and Allison Janney.
