The DUFF
Either you have one, or you are one. The DUFF tells the story of high-school senior Bianca (Mae Whitman) who has a rude awakening when she learns that her classmates secretly know her as the DUFF – designated ugly fat friend – amid her prettier and more popular pals. Can she change up her reputation before her senior year becomes a complete disaster?

 

John Wick
Notorious assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) stepped back completely from his violent career when he met the perfect woman. But when she dies suddenly, everything begin to fall apart.

Now, John must do everything he can to seek vengeance.

This hilarious teen comedy tells the story of frumpy high-school senior Bianca (Mae Whitman) who has a rude awakening when she learns that her classmates secretly know her as the DUFF — designated ugly fat friend — to her prettier and more popular pals.

Desperate to reinvent herself, Bianca enlists the aid of Wesley (Robbie Amell), a charming jock. In order to save her senior year from becoming a complete disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow a judgmental student (Bella Thorne) and revolutionize the school's social order.

The DUFF is in cinemas NOW and to celebrate its release, we’re giving away a hamper filled with Wet N Wild goodies worth €200, to help you add a pop of colour to your make-up bag this season!

Smart and pretty Bianca Piper (Mae Whitman) is enjoying her senior year in high school with best friends Jess (Skyler Samuels) and Casey (Bianca A. Santos); that is until she realises she has been unknowingly dubbed The DUFF – Designated Ugly Fat Friend – of her group by the rest of the school.

Devastated, Bianca decides to revamp her social status and shake off her DUFF label.

With humour, an inspiring heroine and an incredibly important message, this is definitely a must-see movie.
