10 Things I Hate About You

Father forbids younger Bianca to go out with boys until unpopular, rebellious older sister Kat begins dating first. Light, breezy update of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew is a first-rate teen romantic comedy. Entertaining material works because of the clever screenplay. It’s witty and zings with plenty of catty banter to engage the viewer.  Additional credit also goes to the spirited cast with talent to spare. Julia Stiles is nasty with just enough sweetness to be likable and Heath Ledger is pleasing as the boy who charms her. He even sings “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” in this early role. A refreshing addition to films about high school life.

  1. This movie was cute. I enjoyed it. I have never liked Julia Stiles, (in anything), but she was o.k. It was fun.
