THE DUFF is a US romantic comedy about a high school student who discovers she is the "Designated Ugly Fat Friend" in her social group, potentially jeopardising her hopes of finding a date.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), including two bleeped uses during out-takes played over the end credits. Moderate bad language also occurs, including uses of 'bitch' and 'whore'.

Sex

There are occasional moderate sex references, including to masturbation, comic references to 'banging' and older men having 'saggy balls', and a girl miming having sex with a shop mannequin.

There is a passing reference to whether a muscular teen is on steroids.
