Filmcast: The DUFF

Filmcast: The DUFF

  “The DUFF” is what I would call your average dramatic high school comedy. It features the usual labels, bullying, and romance. It’s something you might see on a teenage drama show. If a comedy like this really wanted to stand out, it would have to be laugh-out-loud funny. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite that great […]

I hear French spoken by the grocery store clerk, the voice on the elevator that tells me what floor I’m on, my professors, my classmates, the girl sitting across […]
