Last night I had the pleasure of seeing The Duff with some of my friends. I can honestly say that none of us thought we were going to enjoy this movie nearly as much as we did. This film was more than just your typical high school dramedy with sexy 20 somethings playing high school gods along with regular Joes who look like they still haven’t taken their yearly shower.This movie was both touching and funny. It even touched on some serious social issues like cyber bullying and feeling alone and insecure growing up as a teenager in today’s day and age. You could definitely tell that this movie was made in 2015 with all of the social media references that were made throughout pretty much the entire film. I would definitely recommend this movie. The only thing I didn’t like about it was how sometimes it felt like the movie was trying too hard to be relatable and modern. An example of this is how Bella Thorne’s character says the phrase “What the shit” constantly throughout the entire film. I’m sorry but no actual high school student says that. Other than those cheesy try-hard moments I would say that The Duff is definitely worth seeing.
Here is the trailer if you want to check it out!
