    Lovely movie!

    It's one of my favourite romantic comedies and really entertaining, funny and sweet. I loved Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Always a joy to watch!

    Is it me, or do Heath Ledger, Julia Styles and Joseph Gordon-Levitt look like they could be siblings? Something in the eyes and jawline. I dunno. Did I just ruin 10 Things I Hate About You for someone? This is the high school romcom that shows you can only adapt The Taming of the Shrew so far before its problematic aspects make you abandon ship and swim in another direction. 10 Things definitely uses the names(ish) and set-up of the play, and likes to reference Shakespeare whenever it can, making for a more literate script than most, but lovers of the Bard, waiting to see just how they'll handle certain scenes beyond that is a fool's game. You just can't have Ledger be as boorish or domineering as Petruchio, nor is Styles' Kat all that shrewish. It's mostly cute, with several romantic entanglements playing out for various characters, and a nice portrait of 1999 fashions, music, and casting. My favorite part by far is the dad played by Larry Miller who gets all the best comic bits of business as an obstetrician madly stressed about his two daughters getting pregnant. 3 years 6 months ago

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger in the same movie? Gotta love this. And I recently found out it's kinda based on The Taming of the Shrew. All time favorite ♥ 11 years 6 months ago
