According to this movie, the D.U.F.F stands for the “designated, ugly, fat friend”, “every group of friends has one”, and “we are all someone’s DUFF”. With that being said, this movie also left me with some pretty amazing quotes including, “you’re a wierdo, own it – be the best wierdo you can be!” and “Dottie: you look crazy. Bianca: crazy amazing.”
Because I have not read the book, The DUFF by Kody Keplinger, yet, I was unsure of what the message of the movie was going to be. A small part of me thought that this movie was going to be depressingly insecurity enducing for everyone who watched it, especially teenage girls. But a much larger part of me thought this movie would give its viewers hope and courage to be themselves and not care about what others think of them.
The latter was correct. In addition to the continuous comical situations and lines that made the entire theater laugh, this movie was also very inspirational. I left the theater feeling absolutely amazing about myself because although it was brought to my attention that I am probably someone’s “DUFF”, I don’t really care because I have no desire to be perfect (an extremely relative term). I enjoy being myself and I encourage you all to do the same. Ignore the labels society places on us because all of us are so much more than just a label. For me, the moral of this story was, “Don’t try to be who you think everyone else wants you to be. Be the best version of yourself because that is when you are at your happiest.” The DUFF is currently still playing in the movie theaters.
Rating:☆☆☆☆☆(5 out of 5 stars)
