10 Things I Hate About You Reviews

I don't hate this. For a teen flick it's actually quite good and proves I guess that Shakespeare translates well.

sooo corny but UGHHH i love it. i don't even care. this is a romantic comedy 100% as a romantic comedy should be. i am now beginning to realize how these films actually shape female expectations to the point where no real man is ever good enough - i mean come on, really. who in the world could ever compete with heath ledger in this? the filmmaker in me sees everything wrong with the film, as well as the way it manipulates its target audience, but the girl in me will swoon after heath ledger and watch this movie a million times more.

Heath Ledger is so cute and charming in here! He and Julia Stiles make a great couple in the film. A funny, witty, and ravishing late 90s teen film. It has grown to be one of my favorite rom-coms. A must see!

I to to say that about "10 Things I Hate About You" is that it's funny, clever, and heartwarming." The performances by this cast is really great. The directing by Gil Junger is perfect. The screenplay by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith is good. And the score in this is good as well. "I'm raving that this is a good funny comedy that I personally enjoyed a lot."

15 years on and it remains just as fun. Just reminds you of how great a loss Heath Ledger is to film.

Heath singing 'Can't take eyes off you' is one of the scenes I like most in this movie.

I finally got around to seeing this 90's staple, does it have a lot of cliches of other similar 90s teen rom coms? Yes, but the cast here is very good, and they raise the film above the pack and make it memorable, ledger especially is pretty awesome, idk how accurate this is to the taming of the shrew, but it's an interesting premise, i wouldve liked to see more scenes with the shakespeare girl and david krumholz tho, they seemed like an interesting couple, also has a pretty good soundtrack, (to me at least)

Taming of the Shrew gone high school. It was the thing to reimagine Shakespeare when this did come out. At least it's funny.

I've come into 10 Things I Hate About You not unbiased. You see, I watch this movie because of an online article (for the movie's 15th anniversary! Talk about getting old.) that led me to believe this is a teen comedy that is full of complex characters. Don't get me wrong, 10 Things is highly fun and one of the better teen love stories, with both unconventional and conventional characters (although not wholly complex). Although maybe, it's just that I was too young to get it then, and too old and jaded to get it now (I am much more of a Mean Girls generation).
For a movie that breaks the "rules" by having an outright feminist character, the rest of the characters feel decidedly conventional (no, charming "bad boy" character is not unconventional). Their motivations are too. Teen girl that just wants to date? Check. Overprotective father? Check (although the fact that he is a gynecologyst is hilarious). Somewhat geeky boy that falls with a popular pretty girl? Check. Rich, popular, obnoxious pretty boy as a rival? Check. Falling in love with a bad boy? Check.
If it sounds like I hate the movie, I'm really, really, really sorry. I don't. It's a whole lot of fun, and really romantic, and it's the kind of movie that I'll keep coming back to whenever I'm down. I think I'm just underwhelmed a bit (BTW, can we just be whelmed???). Conventionality aside, the characters are charming, and this movie is ultimately elevated by the greater charm of Julia Stiles, the late Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
