Movies: 10 Things I Hate About You

We're suckers for classic teen romance movies, and 10 Things I Hate About You is no exception! This is the oldest movie we saw with Heath Ledger in it, and he looks as great in this movie (with an Aussie accent!) as he does in Dark Knight, and more sane looking as well!

This movie takes place in a high school in Seattle, and loosely follows the plot of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. Bianca Stratford is young, beautiful, and isn't allowed to go on any dates unless her older sister, Katerina-the-shrew, goes out as well. So some enterprising young men pay Patrick Verona to ask the shrew out, and you can guess where things go to from there....

Quick vote: We love this movie. It's a classic, it's awesome, it's smart, and it's funny.
