> It’s not about a GEEK, but somebody’s DUFF.
Yet, another movie about an intelligent high school teen girl who socially unfit among others. After realising her issue, she fights back to regain what she was missing. This type of concept is extremely common, but initiating a fresh idea on where the narration can develop the plots and finishes off high note is the vital for a movie’s success. This film had one of that and that is called the DUFF. You can find out what that stands for in its official posters.
The movie was above the average. The characters were great, but not the unique ones. Everything was enjoyable, I mean it was not a usual annoying teen movie. Well directed because he got a good screenplay that extracted from the book of the same name. The cast was good, nice performances and so it is official that Bella Thorne classified for those mean girl roles.
Anyway the main character Bianca was so good. Whitman was too old for the role, but outclassed it. Carefully handled to get under the PG13, and it succeeds. So kids with the matured minds are pretty much allowed to watch it and I don’t see any serious offensive to keep them away other than facts the film talks about. Overall a nice watch for sure.
Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend.
Being that Dr. Jeong is the reason I finally watched this, I feel he was under utilized, but I was surprised to see Taylor Lautner and Bella Thorne delightfully playing jerks.
Mae Whitman is an excellent actor and not necessarily known for being a “looker”, but I never would have thought of her as a DUFF either, but I guess the concept is all relative. The movie does spend a lot of time making fun of her for being “unattractive” though.
To be fair, there is a LOT of fun with her being awkward, which isn’t the same thing as unattractive.
This movie has the same sort of feel to it that “Juno”, “Superbad”, and “Easy A” have to them, all good high school social dramedies.
While some of the movie feels like sketch writing for “how to lie your way to victory”, it doesn’t disappoint.
Sits right on the edge of being awesome
The DUFF is quite entertaining and has a really nice poignant message. The film captures life, I mean the characters, and I’m mostly referring to Wesley (Robbie Amell) and Bianca (Mae Whitman), are realistic, humanized. I got a weird sense that I was watching people I knew and not a stereotypical film version of them. The movie has that documentary feel to it and it’s due to how the leads portrayed their characters and how easy it is to relate to them.
The only real disappointment I have with the movie is that I thought it would be funnier. It’s still a comedy but it’s a little more serious than I expected. Watching the trailer I thought that I would laugh a hell of a lot more, specially when you look at the established comedic cast in it. Whitman and Amell do have good comedic timing and The DUFF is fairly funny but the quality of the jokes are not as high as I hopped they would be.
The story is intelligent, insightful, and kind of funny but it’s still very predictable. The DUFF is on the edge of being great but it’s not.
I just couldn’t believe it.
The Duff is just another filed attempt by film makers to make a movie from what was actually a great book. There were so many things wrong with this film that I don’t even know where to start. The book was about how stereotyping is a pile of crap, yet the film strove to make stereotypes out of the characters. They made Wesley stupid and all about his body, they made Bianca ‘awkward’ and socially inept, they made Casey and Jessica look shallow and self-obsessed, and worst of all, they made Toby into an indie, guitar playing dreamboy with long hair. All the characters were meant to be AVERAGE (except maybe Wesley, who was meant to be particularly attractive), because the message of the book was that stereotypes don’t exist and everyone is actually leading really similar lives and you shouldn’t judge. I basically hate this movie and all that it stands for. If I could, I would give it a zero, because I was so disappointed that the makers of it had A* material to work with, real characters and real talk about the world, and they made it just another teen movie.
