One of my favorite things in the world are all the 90’s and early 2000 teen rom-coms. 10 Things I Hate About You, Clueless, She’s The Man, Mean Girls, Bring It On, She’s All That, Can’t Hardly Wait, Never Been Kissed — I could go on! I feel like I haven’t found as many more modern teen rom-coms that I love like those and so I AM SOOOO excited for The Duff because it looks like it has all the makings for a great teen rom-com! I haven’t READ The Duff by Kody Keplinger (plan to!) but I enjoyed one of her other books! PLUS I super super love Mae Whitman from her role in Parenthood and just her as a person in general (one of the few celebs I follow on Twitter) so I have high hopes! It looks funny and super cute (even WILL wants to see it!!) so I’m excited though I cannot think of Mae Whitman as a “duff” because she IS SO NOT.
If you don’t know what it is about or haven’t seen the trailer here’s what it is about:
Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body knows her as ‘The DUFF’ (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends (Skyler Samuels & Bianca Santos). Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher (Ken Jeong), she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby (Nick Eversman), and enlists Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself. To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow the school’s ruthless label maker Madison (Bella Thorne) and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone’s DUFF.
