Duff (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) is about a girl named Bianca reassessing her status in the social hierarchy of High School when her life time friend Wesley the school's jock informs her of her social standing. Bianca then recruits Wesley to undo her "duffness" and transform her into someone like her "prettier" friends Jess and Casey to try and impress her crush Toby. Until she realizes that everyone is someones Duff. Check out the trailer below so you get what I mean.
Checked it out? Good! Now lets have some real talk. When you see the movie or the trailer it basically is high school except it is extremely exaggerated. Here are some points that aren't exactly up to par with actual high school standards.
Come on lets be honest with ourselves here (and every high school movie does this) guys DO NOT look like that! Most guys in high school are complex people that have issues that I don't even want to talk about and if they look like that they might be interested in normal girls but apparently Wesley was part of that group of guys that feel like they deserve someone who is above everyone else. Hence the reason why Wesley was dating Madison.
Duff, geek, jock, mean girl still exist but now have different meanings. Duff (if actually used more often) basically means unique, Jock means your extremely talented on the sports end of the spectrum, geek means your brilliant and everyone wants to be your friend because your most likely going to be ruling the world, and mean girl means what it means you just have an extremely bad attitude.
Girl Power! Most of the movie has Bianca aligned with her BFF's helping each other out all along the way; together they overcome anything. Just as in high school you need a strong group of friends that stand by you no matter what happens to you that may bring them down with you.
So that's how The Duff is like a REAL high school in some ways. Hope you enjoyed!
