Mixed feelings on this one. On the upside The DUFF is a movie that at long last gives outstanding supporting player Mae Whitman (Arrested Development, Parenthood, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) the lead status we crave for her. On the downside, it’s as “the duff” - designated, ugly, fat, friend. As if. It’s a part of that tiresome genre of high school makeover rom-com…but it’s got Mae Whitman. We do love her.
Take a look at the trailer, and tell us how your scales on The DUFF are tipping.
The DUFF opens February 20th.
