Summary: Above average teen flick.
I have no where where they came up with the name for this flick, as there's no reference to "ten things" anywhere in the movie. Basically it's a story about two sisters in high school, a stern prudish older sister who's incredibly mean to everyone, and a ditzy sexypot younger sister that everyone wants to boink. The plot is that in order for Miss Ditz to go to the prom, the other sister has to go to, and no one on the planet wants to go with her, because, after all, she's so mean! But the lustpuppies after the ditz arrange to hire a tough guy to after the meanie, and everyone ends up falling in love. It's actually quite cute and funny in many places. The film does leave the real world far behind in places though. For example, the mean older sister ends up going to see one of her favorite all-female bands in a teenage dyke bar. But she's not a dyke; just mean! Go figure.

Summary: Great
A wonderful mixture with just enough romance, just enough drama, and just enough comedy. Although you knew it was going to happen you still found your self sitting in your seat hoping you were wrong. Great movie descripiting over all teenage life.....over protective parents, siblings you can't stand, that one guy everybody wants but is a jerk, and that one person you end up wanting just come ot of no where. Guys getting their ass kicked when they deserve it.....

Summary: 80's rehash
Just like an 80's angst film. Dumb but fun at parts. Worth a rent.

Summary: hilarious remake of shakespeare
The Taming of the Shrew, done 90s style. Utterly hilarious performances all around, especially the pregnancy-wary obstetrician father. Perfect teen comedy.

Summary: Definitely the best teen movie I've ever seen!
This romantic comedy will definitely have you laughing. It did with me! I fell right out of my chair, laughing. Definitely a great movie I love it! See it if you haven't. I swear you'll love it. It has a great cast of Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Andrew Keegan, and more!

Summary: Excellent Shakespeare
Guys - it's a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The title is a pun version of it - "Taming of the Shrew" "Ten Things I Hate About You". Good flick. Plus it has Letters to Cleo in it. :)
