I'm not going to lie, when I first saw how beautiful and healthy the girl playing the "Designated Ugly Fat Friend" or "DUFF" was I did not want to watch

this film. I was afraid it was going to send out the wrong message. A girlfriend or two suggested it to me so I finally caved and I am so happy I did!!! This movie is amazing. Mae Whitman who plays Bianca is wonderful! She captures the soul of Bianca and runs with it. There is a lot of language and scenes that might not be suitable for those under 15.
