Comedy: Upon learning that she's apparently a DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), a high school senior strikes a deal with the football captain to transform her into the kind of girl who might attract her dreamy crush.
Bianca (MAE WHITMAN) is a high school senior who lives with her single, motivational speaker mom, Dottie (ALLISON JANNEY); has two best friends, Jess (SKYLER SAMUELS) and Casey (BIANCA A. SANTOS); and is the favorite student of journalism teacher Mr. Arthur (KEN JEONG). When her next door neighbor and current high school football team captain, Wesley (ROBBIE AMELL), informs her that she's the DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to Jess and Casey, however, Bianca's world is shaken. Despite Wesley's crass generalization, Bianca believes it. Not only does she then un-friend her friends, but she also strikes a deal with Wesley. She'll help him improve his grades so that his college scholarship isn't in jeopardy while he'll help transform her into the kind of girl who could draw the interest of her dream crush and fellow student, Toby (NICK EVERSMAN).

But Bianca must contend with Wesley's on-again, off-again girlfriend, Madison (BELLA THORNE), who looks down on Bianca but nevertheless is jealous of the time she's spending with Wesley. Accordingly, she gets her friend, Caitlyn (REBECCA WEIL), to capture embarrassing video footage of Bianca and then post that online. As she must contend with that affecting her chances with Toby, and Mr. Arthur assigning her to write a story on the Homecoming dance, Bianca doesn't realize that Wesley might be falling for her.

Since it's about high school and relationships, it might draw in that age bracket as well as younger kids interested in older teen years.
For crude and sexual material throughout, some language and teen partying.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
