I received a copy of The Duff to review from Roadshow Australia
You either know one, you have one or you are one........
I have been anticipating The Duff to be released on DVD, it is a hilarious teen comedy about the high school dramas everyone has been part of.
The Duff follows Bianca who recently learnt that she is 'THE DUFF' of her friends, what is a DUFF you ask? Well it is the Designated Ugly Fat Friend, the friend who helps your friends appear more prettier and popular amongst the others.
Bianca is shattered to learn this is how she is seen at school and is determined to erase the label people have created for her and come out as her own person even if she has to loose a few friends along the way.
I enjoyed and laughed throughout this movie, I am a fan of Mae Whitman who plays Bianca (you may know her from Parenthood) and each character was a perfect fit for this movie.
The DUFF was based on the book by the same title by Kody Keplinger - I think this is the first movie I have seen before reading the book but I will be adding this to my list to read as I really enjoyed the movie.
This is a must watch not just for the Teenagers!
The DUFF will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray from August 12th with an early digital release from today July 31st
