Great movie! I just went to see it and I loved the DUFF. The movie showed cyberbullying and how it can affect people and hurt their feelings. It also showed people going above their "labels" and finding self confidence inside themselves. The movie brought out the most common "labels" in high school like : the football players jocks , pretty girls popular , and the smart kids geeks . I don't think labels should define anyone whether or not they have a lot of money, good looks, smart in school, great at sports, etc. Although the DUFF's movie rating is PG- 13 there <more>
is A lot of colorful language in the movie. I think the director picked great actors and actresses for the movie DUFF.
Oh, to be a teenager again. My first "encounter" with Mae Whitman was when I saw her in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. She was my favorite character in that fine film. I fell in love with her immediately. I was hoping it wouldn't be long before she'd get a starring role. Now, we have The Duff.I saw The Duff today, and she - and everyone in the cast - didn't disappoint. Her relationship with Robbie Amell's character brought back memories of the relationship between Mary Stuart Masterson and Eric Stolz in Some Kind of Wonderful, one of my all time favorite films. I <more>
will now add The Duff to that list. This is a tender romance with plenty of laughs thrown in. The teacher characters reminded of some in Clueless. They're well-drawn and funny. Allison Janney plays Mae Whitman's mother, also a funny, yet very wise character. Ms. Janney has never delivered a sub par performance.I won't reveal the ending. I'll just say it made me so happy, I applauded. It made my week. A great date night movie or just see it by yourself. This is one for the young and, like me, the young at heart. I would see it again - and again. Don't miss it!
The voice cast is amazing. John Goodman and Billy Crystal form a great leading duo. Steve Buscemi is a great villain and James Coburn has a great voice that fits his character perfectly. John Ratzenberger as always is very entertaining this time in a role as banished Yeti. The story itself is pretty simple but thats what makes it easy to follow and so much fun to watch. The movie not only knows how to entertaining but also knows how and when to emote. The combination of fun and emotional things is perfectly balanced and placed within the movie. There is some great dialog but the true power of <more>
"Monsters, Inc." are the wonderful characters. Not is there only a wild variety of strange and weird characters but also some characters that are good for some serious laughs and Boo is simply adorable and a pretty fair representation of a kid in real life. Well done Pixar!
Great film with believable teen situations (by A-L-Ourson)
"The DUFF" is great. It tells the story of Bianca, a sarcastic and nerdy high school senior, who finds out that she is the Duff Designated Ugly Fat Friend of her friend group. Bianca wears a lot of overalls and flannel. She's an honor student. Her tastes lie in old horror films and wannabe musicians who play with their hair too much. Bianca is cute, but since her friends are model –beautiful and outgoing, she, by default, becomes the DUFF. Hating her newly realized title, Bianca asks the school jock for help. Hilarity, cyberbullying, and unexpected relationships ensue.Mae <more>
Whitman and Robbie Amell do great as the leads. Whitman is charmingly awkward and vulnerable. My favorite line is probably when she comes down the stairs and her mom says "You look crazy," and Bianca replies "Crazy Awesome." I think that pretty much sums up Whitman's portrayal of Bianca—crazy awesome. She has great comedic timing, and she avoids being overly dramatic in her sadness. Amell plays an equally charming asshole. He is the type of guy who is so cool, whether he is being a d**k or a nice guy, he is always cool. Amell portrays him with a cocky confidence that makes him both attractive and funny. Throughout the film, you can see why Bianca falls for Wesley, even though he does act like a stereotypical jock sometimes.There is of course a mean girl, and Whitman is the victim of some cruel cyberbullying, but she pulls out of it by owning it. The best part is that Bianca wins in the end by being herself and getting the guy, expected, yes, but who would want it any other way?One of my favorite aspects of the film is that the teenagers actually speak like teenagers, cussing and all. I find that teenage movies often go in two ways: weirdly dark ones with drastically dramatic teenagers, like" Havoc," or innocent Disney-type films where teenagers speak like they're in the forties. I think this film is a good middle. Not too explicit, not too innocent. Just right.All in all, the movie is very entertaining, and it did get me psyched and ready to re-read the book.
Similar to the Films of John Hughes (by Bravesfan17)
I decided to see the latest high school themed comedy. From the trailer, it seemed somewhat mean spirited, but only a couple of the characters truly are. Bianca Piper Mae Whitman from Parenthood is a few weeks into her senior year of high school. Bianca is a hard working student who is also the editor of her school's newspaper. She also enjoys watching cult films in her spare time. Her best friends are Jess Skyler Samuels and Casey Bianca Santos . When popular girl Madison Morgan Bella Thorne invites Jess and Casey to her party on a school night, Bianca feels left out, but ends up <more>
being there anyway. She has a crush on a guitar player named Toby, but gets too nervous around him and can't even come up with two words. At the party, Wesley Rush Robbie Amell , the football team captain/Bianca's neighbor, tells her that she is a DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend . Bianca's feelings are hurt, but she slowly realizes that he is right as she feels like she only is there to make her friends look better. Having no choice, Bianca goes to Wesley for help in looking more dateable in exchange for helping him improve his science grade. Seeing them spend time together, Madison does what she can to humiliate Bianca. Like I said before, the film isn't as mean spirited as the trailer makes it out to be. The only mean spirited characters are Madison and her friend Caitlin, who films Bianca twice to humiliate her. In a lot of ways, The Duff reminds me of the films of John Hughes. With this film, director Ari Sandel and lead actress Mae Whitman show that everyone can relate to being a DUFF. Sandel's work here also makes me think of Hughes in the sense of how the latter showed that teenagers are human and go through life obstacles. The standout in this cast is Mae Whitman in the front and center as Bianca Piper. Whitman did tremendous work the past five years as Amber Holt on Parenthood and shows here that she can carry a feature film. She is great here as this girl who overcomes obstacles with school, labels, and being dateable. The next standout is Bella Thorne, who plays the popular Madison Morgan. Thorne turns in a heck of a performance as the bitchy girl who thinks she is better than everyone else. Samuels, Santos, and Amell all do nice jobs in their respective roles. It was also nice to see Allison Janney, Ken Jeong, and Romany Malco all show up. The film has a lot of laugh out loud moments, interesting characters, and an entertaining story.
A feel good movie to watch again and again (by Figgy66-915-598470)
11 April 2015 Film of Choice at the Plaza Dorchester Tonight - The Duff. I felt I needed to see one of the typical American High School films that all follow the same kind of storyline, with laughs in all the right places.......so I went to see The Duff. I was not disappointed, this film could have been made in any of the last 6 or 7 decades and it's meaning would have rung true with the audience. OK so perhaps cyber bullying wasn't around even as recent as the 80s but this story would still work. Look at Back to The Future for example, that's a film with a major bully who finally <more>
gets his comeuppance in three different time zones.....that's why this story will always work. In this instance we are talking of a girl's realisation that she is in fact her friends' DUFF - Designated Ugly Fat Friend, and the stages she goes through to deny, become angry, accept and finally deal with the situation. Striking a deal with her neighbour who happens to be one of the schools' 'Jocks' she sets out to answer her bullies accusations. All the usual suspects are there....the princesses, the nerds, the jocks, and the weirdos, it's like watching an old friend, and although it's dealing with some pretty serious issues, it's still just a story about Teenagers at High School and what's important to them. I may be in my 47th year, and the oldest one in the cinema, but I really enjoyed this film and could watch it again and again.
Hilarious, yet deep. And, worthy of a second viewing (by rannynm)
The comedic movie, The Duff, is hilarious, relatable and worth watching. The film is about high-school senior Bianca, played by Mae Whitman, who finds out that she is the DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend of her attractive group of friends. Determined to change her DUFF image and impress her crush Toby, she turns to her popular neighbor Wesley Rush, played by Robbie Amell, to give her a complete makeover. Through her journey of transformation, she gains self confidence and shows the school that everybody is a DUFF. Not only do I enjoy that the movie starts off fast, but I really like that it <more>
starts with a cool, graphic newspaper clip that explains high school and the different types of people in high school. Being a high school student myself, I was really surprised at how relatable the movie is, especially to today's generation of teenagers. It doesn't just portray the generic, stereotypical high school student that is so outdated. The movie has a lot of familiar celebrity stars that I enjoyed seeing. The performances by Mae Whitman, Robbie Amell, Allison Janney and Ken Jeong are especially hilarious and very entertaining.The movie is hilarious, yet deep. Most comedy movies are really funny, yet pointless or lack an overall message. I laughed so often and even shed a tear in a heartfelt scene. The facial expressions are priceless and memorable. I respect this film for being extremely funny while also having a deep, motivational moral lesson and theme. I enjoyed the plot and moral of the story as much the comedy. The movie has a lot of references that are very comical. One example is an episode of the Simpsons that the movie shows. The movie also has really entertaining graphics that make the movie even more unique, some of this include labels and an interactive screen effect.This film is one I will watch multiple times and tell my friends to watch, yet I do not recommend it as a family movie. The film may be inappropriate for children under the age of 13 due to inappropriate language and actions. I definitely recommend the movie for teenagers in high school, especially girls. I recommend the movie to ages between 13 and 18. I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars.
An Enjoyable new generation of teen comedy (by bbickley13-921-58664)
I never herd the term Duff before and I don't know if it exist in real culture, but it made for a humorous movie. Bianca Piper is The Duff Designated Ugly Fat Friend . Though it sounds very cruel when spelled out, abbreviated it just means your not as cool or as hot as the friends you hang around, and if your a teenage girl who was made aware of this by your idiot jock next store neighbor without previous knowledge that you were different from your herd, that could put you on a downward spiral.This movie is just more proof that teenagers don't change technology does and social media <more>
plays a very large part in this movie , which is why the movie seems formulated. I would not spoil anything if I told you how it ends so long as you have seen a teen comedy before.I find the topic of the Duff fascinating. The character itself has been seen in every teen movie ever. It's always the main protagonist, the semi-cooler kid that wants the protagonist to party and the third wheel, that now has a name. For the first time in teen comedy history I think that third wheel got it's own flick and it turns out the Duff is funnier than the one liners we had it say over the course of time.Mae Whitman played the character with amusing results.I totally recommended seeing this film. highly enjoyable
I had the pleasure of going to see the NYC premiere last night with my sister and was pleasantly surprised. Mae Whitman's performance in this film has set her up to be Hollywood's next breakout star. She brings so much humor, wit and charm to the table that's going to make her fans wanting more. Viewers will also identify with Mae's struggles in the film, as well as the overall message. I think we could all agree that everyone has has a DUFF in their friend group. DUFF doesn't always have to mean ugly or fat it can, but it doesn't always apply . One example of a DUFF <more>
can be a friend that's always just kind of there in the friend group and makes everyone else look better. Another example of a DUFF, which is similar to Mae's character in the film, is the friend of the group that is hilarious and makes everyone die laughing, but is rarely someone a guy is attracted to or would be looking to date. There are different dimensions to the term duff. No duff is the same.Every one person can have a little DUFF in them. Meaning, a flaw, insecurities, etc. Overall, the film was funny, even a bit crude at points, but also very touching. I'd definitely recommend it.
