5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff.
I thought it was well written and produced, actors did an excellent job; nice to go back in time and appreciate the young, unknown then, putting on the performances that are now considered the start of some celebrities.

This review is from: 10 Things I Hate About You 10th Anniversary Edition (DVD)I'm a sucker for high school romances, what many refer to as stereotypical teenage comedies, and this one doesn't disappoint. The dialogue is appropriately witty and energetic. An often overlooked part of the film, the soundtrack to the movie suits the film perfectly. I can't help but swoon a little when Heath Ledger belts out "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You." While the ending may not be original, you can't help but feel warm and fuzzy when the credits begin to roll.
An excellent movie that I'll watch again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't hate anything about this movie,
It's true that this film is loosely inspired by Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, but don't make too much of that. How many teens would even know what a shrew is? Personally, I don't look at Kat Stratford (Julia Styles) as a shrew; she's just a bitter, disillusioned teen who can't stand the thought of doing what is expected of her - and she does have reasons for taking on this persona. Her sister Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) is her exact opposite, a vivacious girl who just wants to be a normal teenager. Her problem is the girls' overprotective father, who refuses to let Bianca date until Kat starts dating (which doesn't look like it will be happening any time soon given Kat's nature). The new kid in school, Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), is smitten with Bianca, and he puts together a plan to make her date-eligible by having someone else take out her sister - ingeniously using the school's pitifully shallow cool guy (and Bianca admirer) as the middle man. The chosen one is the school's mysterious new tough guy, who has to earn the money he's being paid to win the reluctant Kat over. Obviously, he ends up falling for the girl, which puts everything in place for the predictable conclusion. Will Kat and the designated dater become a couple, or will everything explode in the guy's face? Will Bianca ever win the right to get out of the house and spread her perkiness all around? And who will Bianca choose - the hot, brainless Mr. Cool or Cameron, the nice boy who looks like he should still be in junior high? And, since she's already taller than the guy, will Bianca ever stop putting her hair up when she goes out with him?
Cliches abound, but the script really is rather witty. For those keeping score at home, the film does feature one wild dance party and the required minimum of one barfing scene, but it never crosses the line into a completely dumb teen comedy. 10 Things I Hate About You isn't quite as good as the classic John Hughes films of the 1980s, but it's easily better than most of the teen films produced in recent years. With its PG-13 rating, it's also a teen movie suitable for teens of all ages - a little table dancing is about as racy as this one gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome,

5.0 out of 5 stars Love is in the air.,
Bianca is your typical prep all into fashion and a hotsy tosty life. Kat is the quiet loner who finds more satifsication relaxing at home than going to any type of party or social gathering.
New kid comes along adoring over Bianca. His friend and him decide to make a plan to pair Kat with Patrick.
It's a hard trip to get Kat in a liking happy mood, much less to get her to a party that she must attend dually with her sister, or else. The girl's have to live with an overbearing father who takes good watch over his girls.
I grew up with this movie and it is a definate high school flick funny for anyone.
4.0 out of 5 stars shakespeare with a twist - classic teen flick,
This is because I've been absolutely hooked on this movie ever since I first saw it in theaters. It could have been the plot that got me. Sophomore Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) wants to date. In particular, she wants to date Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan). The only thing stopping her is the ulimate rule in her house: NO DATING UNTIL YOU GRADUATE. Bianca appeals to her single father (Larry Miller), who finally concedes and makes a new rule just as challenging as the first: Bianca could date when her sister did. The roadblock? Bianca's sister, senior Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles), could quite possibly be more against dating in high school than her dad. Enter Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), new kid to school with a major crush on Bianca, and his friend, Michael (David Krumholtz), who plot to get Kat dating so that, in turn, Bianca will start dating. The rest of the movie involves Cameron and Michael doing just that, with Patrick (a brown-haired Heath Ledger) engaging in their little game along with the less knowing mega-hotshot Joey.
Maybe it was the characters. Kat Stratford has an unchanging, bitter attitude about being yourself and not doing something just because everyone else is. Bianca loves to conform and be popular - basically the exact opposite of Kat. Larry Miller does a great job in his role as the sisters' overprotective dad who's "up to [his] elbows in placenta all day long" in his career as a doctor and is obsessed with keeping his daughters from growing up. Cameron is easily likable, a boy who becomes fixed on making Bianca his own (pure intentions). Joey is just as easily not likable as a boy who is also fixed on making Bianca his own (impure intentions). Michael is perfect as an awkward teenager who, I suppose, most would describe as being the "geek" of the movie, while I would disagree (ex., being the one who comes up with the "Joey's just a pawn" plan). Patrick is hilarious in his attempts to capture Kat's attention. Other noteworthy characters include Ms. Perky, the unhelpful guidance counselor secretly writing a dirty romance novel; Mr. Morgan, the Shakespeare-rapping English teacher; and the gym teacher/soccer coach who is the perfect comedic tool.
Maybe it was the memorable scenes: Bianca at prom, the detention room, the stadium serenade, Boogie's party, the motorbike, and Kat in English class, just to name a few.
I'm not sure what exactly it is about 10 Things I Hate About You - the characters, the plot, the scenes, the catchy Letters to Cleo tune - but it's a movie for anybody who wants a good laugh and wants to see how crazy somebody else's life can get.
DVD NOTE: Besides surround sound and a trailer, there are no extras.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!,
