The Duff: Movie Review and #DuffParty Giveaway!

The Duff by Kody Keplinger was one of the first books I reviewed for Book Nerds Across America. I enjoyed it, and I was interested to learn that they were making it into a movie. I vaguely wondered how exactly they would translate the book plot to a movie, and I later learned that they did not. I won't get into how the book differs from the movie -- you can simply Google "the duff movie versus book" and you'll be bombarded with the differences.

Unfortunately, I never got to see the movie in the theaters, so I was scoping out when it would be available in digital and DVD format so I could rent it. Enter The Duff Twitter account: They asked me how I would throw a #DuffParty and I answered them -- and then I won! All the goodies you see listed above!

The official The Duff Viewing Party was on 5/30 when I was at BookCon, but I invited a friend over the following weekend for our belated #DuffParty:

Popcorn is popped, nail polish and manicure kit is out and ready...

...and drinks are served! Cheers!
We both agreed that the movie was cute and Robbie Amell is adorable. My friend recognized Bella Thorne from Blended, which I've never seen. We thought all the actors gave great performances. Overall, this is a cute, fun movie to watch with your girlfriends on a chill night in...

The Giveway! we're going to help you do just that! Two (2) winners will each receive:

  • 2 Duff popcorn cases
  • 2 Duff manicure kits
  • 2 Duff nail polish sets

We'll run this contest until June 22. To enter, simply do what I did to win -- tell us (in the comments) how do you do a Duff viewing party? Be sure to include your email address so we can contact you if you win!


  1. I got to see The DUFF in the theater and I'm excited to get the DVD which comes out tomorrow! Woot-woot. I'd planned to have a rewatch party with my friends with some drinks and snacks and well, if I won, pedicures! This movie is too much fun and can't wait to see it again.
