A high school senior instigates a social pecking order revolution after finding out that she has been labeled the DUFF - Designated Ugly Fat Friend - by her prettier, more popular counterparts.

Wow! I did not see that ending coming at all!


While being entirely predictable, it was actually an entertaining movie.

The general theme of the movie reminds me of She's All That; cute jock boy and 'ugly' girl, girl gets transformation and they both ride off into the sunset together.

Mae Whitman and Robbie Amell were the highlights of the film, the two of them have great chemistry together and made the movie enjoyable to watch. Allison Janney is always good to see on the screen, even in a small role like in this film.

It was a bit hard to watch at some points; I mean is anyone as awkward as Bianca (Whitman) was in most of the film and some parts were just over the top, bordering on stupid.

There are a lot of social media and pop culture references in this, every social media website gets a mention at least once during the film.

Robbie Amell.

Being as predictable and awkward to watch as it is, it was an entertaining and funny movie, and I think most of that credit has to go to Whitman and Amell.

It's probably something I would watch again, but not until it comes out on Netflix or something like that.
