    Synopsis


    10 Things I Hate About You
    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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      More Than Ten Things To Like About This Movie

      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 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 10 Things I Hate About You to be a bargain for an uplifting and heartwarming movie.

      This review is specific to the Blu-ray 10th Anniversary Edition. This movie is a very clever way to introduce Shakespeare to a younger generation. The writing is sharp, the acting is amazing for such a young cast, and the location is breathtaking. The Blu-ray upgrade looks awesome! This edition also includes two special features not available on the original DVD. The first, a 30 minute documentary, 10 Things I love about 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, 10 years later. I enjoyed the added insights this look behind the scenes provided. The second feature is a Writers and Cast Audio Commentary. Overall, I think this is a great movie that has held up well over time. Well worth upgrading to the Blu-ray special edition.

      A teen angst, modern classic.

      This is one of my wife's favorite movies, and for good reason. Relatable characters, teen angst, and a story that all of us-at some point during our high school years-experienced first hand. If you're no longer in high school and you've not yet seen this movie, check it out and take a stroll down memory lane. If you are in high school and have yet to see this movie, I still recommend a viewing...although, you're probably living it. lol Either way, enjoy! Also...we miss you Heath Ledger!

      I have not used Best Buy for purchasing on-line so was very pleased that the process was so easy. Because of the season the shipping was free also, even though this was a small purchase (most companies make you spend a large amount before they give free shipping). The movie "Ten Things I Hate About You" is a Christmas Gift so it's great to have it before Christmas. I will definitely be doing this again.

      This is a really fun adaptation of the taming of the shrew by william shakespeare but in present-day. The casting was dead on and the story keeps the main point of the taming of the shrew in mind, This is not a perfect film but love it for what it is, a comedy. If you are looking for an exact adaptation then stay away from this film, but if you want to see a modern day taming of the shrew that is funny you need to see this film.

      Disappointing Lack of Digital Copy

      As I'm sure many have seen/read now, this copy at one time listed that the Digital Copy was also included... which it is NOT. Normally I would pay $2 for VUDUs disc-to-digital transfer... but this is ineligible for that as well. Still a 5-star high school film, but the lack of digital prevents this from getting a 5-star treatment.

      There is no downside to this film. The acting is real life and witty. The script and direction allow for full performances. This is fundamentally a comedy without stupidity ( as so many films provide today attempting to get a laugh or giggle). The breath and width of the film comes from true to life sentiments that provide their9 own comical adroitness. No forcing of funny is require when some wit and intelligence is used. A+ rating

      What's not to like about this classic tale? you'll laugh, cry (maybe), and even put a smile on your face. if you're a Julia or Heath (not the bar lol) fan then this is a must. See what Heath meant by "now I see the funny side , now I'm always smiling"
