PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
A high school senior instigates a social pecking order revolution after finding out that she has been labeled the DUFF - Designated Ugly Fat Friend - by her prettier, more popular counterparts.
Bella Thorne auditioned for the role of Bianca which went to Mae Whitman. The producers liked her so much they wrote in the role of Madison for her.
You may not believe this, but I was the DUFF out of my friends.
Bianca Piper: No! Really?
Mr. Arthur: Yeah, there was no cool name for it when I was in high school, it was like the Dipshit, Douchebag, use to get Asian Erkel.
When Madison is giving out her party invitations, Caitlyn is supposedly recording the interaction for Madison's YouTube channel, however for the majority of the scene she is holding her phone incorrectly and her hand is covering the camera.
At the start of the closing credits there is a gag reel in between introducing each actor/actress.
The UK theatrical version cuts a "strong sexual reference" to achieve a lower age rating. BBFC says: "During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice by the BBFC on how to secure the desired classification in the UK. It was likely to receive a 15 classification but their preferred 12A could be achieved by removing a scene involving strong sex references. When the film was submitted for formal classification, this sequence had been removed and the film was classified 12A."
