THE DUFF Trailer and Poster: Mae Whitman Stars as Designated Ugly Fat Friend


The first trailer and poster for the high-school comedy "The DUFF" have been released. Mae Whitman stars as a high school senior who discovers that she has the infamous reputation of being 'The DUFF' (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). She enlists the help of Wesley (Robbie Amell), a slick but charming jock, to help reinvent herself. So far the film looks like and update of "Mean Girls" and "She's All That". The high-school stereotypes are all in place but the film looks to have an easy-going charm that could shield it from heavy criticism. The cast also features Bella Thorne, Bianca Santos, Skyler Samuels, Nick Eversman, Allison Janney, Romany Malco and Ken Jeong.

"The DUFF" opens in theaters next year.

Check out the trailer and poster after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"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."
