Storyline Heading

Meet the Stratford sisters: pretty and popular Bianca, who has never had a date; and Kat, her older sibling, an ill-tempered harridan whose acerbic wit is matched only by her steadfast determination to alienate any guy who might be remotely interested in her.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - 10 Things I Hate About You is a high school comedy targeted primarily at teenagers. With its story based on "The Taming of the Shrew" and a smarter than usual script, it may appeal to some adults beyond that target audience with its humor. Teens will be attracted to the appealing cast and the situations; parents need not be concerned about an excess of explicity sexuality or substance abuse (though there is some of both).

Critic's Review Heading
Average
It's a warm and fuzzy sort of teen film with some welcome positive messages about independent thought and valuing depth of character, yet it still rarely rises above the level of the blandly generic. It might have had a chance if so many sub-plots hadn't been packed into a tight 94-minute package, short-changing them all with shallowness. Still, it's enough of a surprise to find a teen film that doesn't overstay its welcome instantly, let alone deserves more fleshing out. It's enough to give you hope that there's actually a good movie to be made in 1999 "...with teenagers."

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Meet the Stratford sisters: pretty and popular Bianca (LARISA OLEYNIK), who has never had a date; and Kat (JULIA STILES), her older sibling, an ill-tempered harridan whose acerbic wit is matched only by her steadfast determination to alienate any guy who might be remotely interested in her.

Unfortunately, strict rules in the Stratford household forbid Bianca from having a boyfriend until her odious sister has one of her own-a situation that seems highly improbable considering Kat is a social disaster.

Bianca's desperation for romance turns into a convoluted scheme to match Kat with her male equivalent-a guy whose reputation is so infamous, Kat might rise to the challenge and find him worthy of her concealed charms. Mating mayhem ensues when Patrick Verona (HEATH LEDGER)-a sullen young man with a mysterious past-is bribed by Bianca's wannabe boyfriend (ANDREW KEEGAN) to woo and win Kat, in order to clear the way for Bianca to begin dating.
