Movie Review - The Duff (2015)

Hi Guys,

The Duff (2015) is an American comedy film directed by Ari Sandel. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Kody Keplinger. DUFF is full form for Designated Ugly Fat Friend which as they said is the part of every group of friends. Duff is the kind of person, people will go to be friends with the famous ones in the group. People exploit them to be with their good looking friends who are more popular. 

The Duff stars Mae Whitman who has acted very well and whom you remember from the Independence Day movie where she played the daughter of the President. The movie is all about her and Robbie Amell has also played a crucial role along with others like Skyler Samuels, Bianca A. Santos, Bella Thorne, Ken Jeong and Chris Wylde. Robbie Amell looked great in all his scenes and brings a lot of comic into his act.

The movie will remind you of the Mean Girls (2004) which starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried. The Duff is different from the earlier teenagers movie as it's more current with more adult dialogues and inclined towards being mature kind of comedy. But nevertheless the movie will keep you laughing throughout till the end and then the same old story of longing and getting together again kicks in some emotional drama. Also this is the first film Lionsgate releases after taking over CBS Films distribution network.

It's a good watch for one time if you are into teen kind of comedies. But there is nothing new that the movie offers in 102 minutes other than a great actress in the making which is Mae Whitman. Go for her! 

This movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor on 1st May 2015. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook
