The DUFF or Designated Ugly Fat Friend is a new teen film that just came out and unlike most teen films in recent memory this film actually holds a positive message for people of all ages about acceptance and being proud of who you are. I really didn’t know what to expect from the film going in, a fun little teen movie distraction sure, but it’s message was so touching and yes the geek gets the guy in this case but the story about labels and being proud of who you are and not caring about what other people think is the thing I keep coming back to. The teen movie clashes are there from the makeover montage to the hot mean girls and the misunderstood jock but the film does a good job in drawing out most of them and making them well rounded characters. The young cast is very good especially Mae Whitman and Robbie Amell, the supporting cast is just as good with not nearly the opportunity to shine like the main stars. I give the DUFF 5 stars out of 5.
