Default Boycott DUFF

I have been seeing the commercials for the new movie DUFF on the tv. Haven't seen the movie, just the commercials.

DUFF Designated Ugly Fat Friend

How I ask does creating a new slogan for use to bully people going to help with the bullying problem???

I say BOYCOTT the movie and show the producers that we will not stand for bullying....

anyone else feel that way....?

And here's the plot.

It sounds like it ends well. But...it sounds like it is for a teen audience.

I don't see this movie getting a lot of traction with our age group, so our boycotting it may not have the desired result. Now, if all the teenagers out there boycotted it, I believe that would make a difference.

The DUFF - Rotten Tomatoes

It looks like an ugly duckling type movie and really see no problem with it. Kids and adults will bully for whatever reason they have personally and do not see some movie as have much of an impact on it.

How do you boycott a movie? If the answer is by not attending, then I have boycotted every movie produced in the last 40 years or so except one that I took the grandkids to see.

As if young girls and teens don't already suffer from severe body image problems, here comes DUFF. Just goes to prove, anything for a buck...
