No secret that The DUFF is one of the movies that we are looking forward to most in 2015. We’re loving that there will be a return to teen comedy and it stars some of our favorite stars. Mae Whitman! Hello, you had us at her. But then you added Robbie Amell, Skylar Samuels, Bella Thorne, and Bianca Santos. We were hooked. We didn’t think it could get any better. But let us not forget Ken Jeong and Allison Janney. It’s shaped up to be a great cast!
While we waited anxiously for the movie’s trailer, we could only imagine what it would be like. Guys – we’re huge fans of the book and we can tell that the movie will be different, but we’re hoping that it still contains the humor and the essence of the book.
We are going into this movie, separating the movie from the book in our minds. We love the trailer, and here’s the life lessons that we learned from it.
Friending Up is A Thing.
It may not be something that we necessarily agree with, as we think that everyone brings something unique to a friendship, but in the world – people do believe that you friend up. Meaning in the caste system that is part of youth, you expand out of your group. You may start out as a geek in the eyes of others, but your friends are the popular people, you have “friended up”.
High School is a caste system.
This one we think we knew. Well, I hate to tell people, but this will continue for the rest of everyone’s lives. But what matters is how you embrace the people around you. Guess what guys – the world is ever changing, and you have the chance to embrace it or to turn away from it. The world may be a caste system and you may believe that you are in one caste, but you never know what the rest of the world thinks of you. So be kind to all.
I know that men like boobs, but they are a royal pain in the ass. I mean, of course any girl wants them to look good, but do you know how hard it is to keep them separated, or hell, the illusion that you have any. I mean the thing is, bras change shape, get stretched, and shit happens. But people are always judfing our chests. And I’m left wondering, while you’re judging, do you know how much a good bra costs. Shits expensive and uncomfortable. Don’t judge a woman’s need to wear a sports bra every now and then.
Dressing like Wreck-It Ralph isn’t a good thing – especially if you are a girl.
I am all for dressing up, and I am all for looking your best, but do you have any clue how hard it is to have to put all that time in. I mean we are talking about having to blow dry your hair, straightening it, makeup, plucking, ironing, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Wreck It Ralph was all about comfort and he’s a lucky bastard that he’s able to be that comfortable. Though the world may judge you for your fashion sense, I say that every woman should be allowed a Wreck It Ralph moment.
Mean Girls Always Have Good Hair
Now Bella Thorne’s character is the mean girl in the movie, but can we talk about her amazing hair. Cause it’s on point. She’s got better hair than anyone in the movie. So we’re saying when you’re looking for the mean girl – look out for the girl with the really great hair.
Running over someone’s clothes with a lawnmower is a thing.
You know you can get a DUI for driving with a glass of wine on a lawnmower – FYI.
When you’re excited you radiate light.
We’re personally digging the overalls, but hey, as much as people would like to say that it’s not appropriate attire, they are back in style. Being happy is important and when you do – the mess just comes right off you, and you’re like hey world, I’m here.
SYPNOSIS: Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a content high school senior whose world is shattered when she learns the student body knows her as ‘The DUFF’ (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends (Skyler Samuels & Bianca Santos). Now, despite the words of caution from her favorite teacher (Ken Jeong), she puts aside the potential distraction of her crush, Toby (Nick Eversman), and enlists Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself. To save her senior year from turning into a total disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow the school’s ruthless label maker Madison (Bella Thorne) and remind everyone that no matter what people look or act like, we are all someone’s DUFF.
