The DUFF final trailer and poster have been released and we have it here!
Bianca 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. Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher, she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby, and enlists Wesley, 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 and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone’s DUFF.
The movie stars Mae Whitman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), who is neither fat nor ugly by the way, as Bianca, the DUFF in this movie adaptation. Skyler Samuels (The Nine Lives of Chloe King) and Bianca A. Santos (The Fosters) are Jess and Casey, the friends that she’s the DUFF to. Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!) is Madison, the antagonist/bully/mean girl in this teen flick. Ken Jeong (Community) plays friendly teacher, and according to his character, a former DUFF. And The Flash‘s Robbie Amell plays Wesley, the former-childhood-friend-turned-jock who Bianca enlists to help her get out of her DUFF status.
Despite the similarities of this to other teen flicks that have an “ugly duckling turned swan” premise to it, The DUFF looks like a fun, refresher of a film for tweens and teens to watch. Plus, it’s based on the Young Adult novel of the same name by Kody Keplinger.
The Duff hits theaters February 20th.
