The high school romance genre has become so popular that it's running out of new ideas and has taken to recycling classic literature.

It's a fast-food film, easy to digest, but nothing remarkable or memorable.

The movie wimped out by blanding down the story and the characters to the point where she isn't really a shrew and he isn't really a maniac.

Despite a tinny script, the cast puts in fine performances in what is a very unfunny movie. But the praise stops there.

The pleasingly acerbic Stiles gives it her all, and if the script had had one-tenth the zest of the now-classic "AtomicShakespeare" episode of the TV series "Moonlighting" she might have managed to make something of the vehicle.

Since the natural audience for this is girls under 18, do they really need the message that brains are a bad thing, dooming them to a dateless high school career?

This production, these situations and characters, are to Shakespeare what advertising is to truth.

The notion of a contemporary high school as a hotbed of romantic intrigue is utterly apt, and the performances almost make the update work.
