‘ Mean Girls + Clueless ‘ = ” The Duff” Trailer #1; in Theaters in Spring, 2015
THE DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) is an interesting new movie on the horizon. Much like CLUELESS, UGLY BETTY and MEAN GIRLS, this movie will walk in those footsteps and maybe walk some new ground. We all have seen “mean girls” on TV, in movies and–honestly– in real life who use a girl who seems to lack something in social currency so that these pretty -but vapid– girls can feel good about themselves. The question is truly about the DUFF… does she ever recover from the battle scars! This movie might show us something new! (And hopefully, I am not projecting too much into this film via the trailer. )
In Theaters In Spring, 2015
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.
