10 Things I Hate About YouDirector: Gil Junger,
As Shakespearean adaptations go, it's not quite as odd as moving The Tempest to another planet (as in Forbidden Planet) or Hamlet to a Canadian brewery (the secret subtext of Strange Brew), but it's still safe to say no one was expecting a version of The Taming of the Shrew set in an American high school. But unlike the previously mentioned films, 10 Things I Hate About You at least gives the Bard screen credit for his contribution to the story. In 10 Things I Hate About You, Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) is a tenth grader who has never gone on a date, as her parents have a little rule where Bianca isn't allowed to go out with boys until her older sister gets a boyfriend. The problem is, while her older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) is attractive and intelligent, she's also a mean-spirited misanthrope who rubs nearly everyone the wrong way -- especially boys. But Bianca and the guy she has her eye on, Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan), are eager to get their romance on the road, so Joey fixes Kat up with Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger), a new kid in town who may be just bitter and mysterious enough to suit her. 10 Things I Hate About You is the first feature film for director Gil Junger, who previously worked extensively in television, including episodes of Dharma and Greg, Ellen, and Blossom.

10 Things I Hate about You is one of the best films made in our generation for our generation. Although it is loosely based off of the Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew, One could not tell this unless he/she were to see the play close to when the movie came out. The screenwriters did an excellent job covering up the fact that the plot is centuries old. This modern day version is set in a high school, a very strange place for a Shakespeare play. Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik), a sophomore, is the lovely daughter of a gynecologist who delivers babies for a living. Her father makes a rule that she cannot date until her sister, Kat (Julia Stiles), does, a heartless senior who could not care less about men. This has never been a problem before but now there is a new boy, Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan) who moved to town and they both have an eye for each other. In a desperate attempt to be able to date the lovely Bianca, Joey interviews some tough guys from school. None of them are willing to try to date Kat. Finally, Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger), a senior who just moved into the area, is willing to do the dirty job, but for some cash. This means that Bianca and her prince can engage in several dates. The dad, meanwhile, is going ballistic, his plan to keep Bianca from dating, forever, is going south. The next thing that he knows Kat wants to go to the Prom with Patrick, which da! da! da! means that Bianca can go too. The movie was an overall success. The plot was interesting, thanks to Shakespeare, but with a new twist that renews the old love story into one that can be enjoyed by our generation. While it did not follow the play exactly, it did do a wonderful job sticking to the basic ideas and keeping the overall emotions the same.
This movie has it all: humor, romance, drama, etc. I can watch this movie time and time again and the ending still gets to me! Julia Stiles is beautiful and a wonderful actress who sparks all the ladies' inner-tough girl. I can't say enough about this Shakespearian inspired movie.
Suprisingly, I unexpectedly came across this dvd of 10 Things I Hate About You at my Walmart job after searching for another dvd. For some reason, I felt drawn to this movie even though I obviously graduated from high school quite some time ago (class of 2000). There are multiple celebrities attached to this film (information available online from both wiki and the Internet movie database) and the movie centers around a popular and charismatic female named Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik, I remember here from the Alex Mack episodes I watched as a teenager) who is sought after by Cameron James (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and an equally popular and wealthy student named Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan). Bianca’s sister Kat ends up getting drawn into this soap opera and is chased after a fellow student named Patrick Verona (the late acclaimed Heath Ledger) thanks to the calculated string pulling by Cameron James, his friend Michael Eckman (David Krumholtz) and Joey Donner. Gabrielle Union and Allison Janney are also some of the multiple celebrities featured in this film that I also recognized (online sources credit being the Mary Jane tv series to Union and Janney to the Masters of Sex tv series). The dvd comes with the following movie trailers; When In Rome, Extract, and 10 Things I Hate About You tv series. This dvd feature film also includes the other listed bonus features; 10 Things I Hate About You 10 Years Later, Exclusive Footage, and Filmmaker as well as Cast Audio commentary. Some of the multiple things I loved about this movie 10 Things I Hate About You; The indie rock music featured in the film that the character of Kat (Julie Stiles) is seen enjoying, the various fun songs featured in this film (Push It by Salt N Pepa, Hold Me Now song by Thompson Twins, Sexy Boy by Air etc), and a compelling quote by that Heath Ledger’s Veronica character is seen quoting in the film. The motivational and memorable quote referenced in this movie is “Don’t Let Anyone Make You Feel Like You Don’t Deserve What You Want.” I say this because I truly feel that this insightful quote can apply to various aims in a person’s life (career goals, where a person wants to live, other personal goals etc.) even though the Verona character (Heath Ledger) was actually saying this as encouragement to Cameron James . Last, but not least, the various Shakespeare references unexpectedly encouraged me to look into attending some plays/theater in the future (fortunately, I figured out how I can attend at least one play every 3-4 months at a minimum). Overall, these are some of the various reasons why I found the five dollar purchase of !0 Things I Hate About You to be a bargain for an uplifting and heartwarming movie.
I Was drawing trying to find something to amuse myself when this movie came on, i thought about changing it until Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation", came on.... i decided to give the movie a chance and watched it, after it was over i devoted this movie as my favorite of all time, it was totally awesome, because well, i can relate myself to the character "kat". watch it,love it,enjoy it.

10 Things I Hate About You is a little more than your average teenage romance movie. 10 Things I Hate About You is based on Shakespeare¿s play The Taming of the Shrew. Bianca, a spoiled rich girl, wants more than anything for her father to let her date Joey, a model. The problem is that Bianca isn¿t allowed to date until her not-so-popular sister Kat does. Then the new guy moves into town and bringing along with him a crush on Bianca causing all sorts of things to happen. He tricks Joey into paying Patrick, a wild legend, to go out with Kat. Things start going wrong when Patrick starts falling for Kat. 10 Things I Hate About You is a Shakespearean comedy brought into the modern world. This comedy is one that you could watch everyday and still enjoy it. During the coarse of the tangled teenage love lives many Shakespeare quotes were thrown in. Sure this is another teenage love story, only this story seems to take more twists and turns and ends with a bang.
This is my favorite movie! I have watched it a billion and a half times. i have every word memorized. it really is the greatest movie ever and i think every girl ever should own it!
