Just great teen update of "Taming of the Shrew"
At Pardu High School young perky sophomore Bianca Stratford (Larisa
Oleynik) wants to date--but her overprotective father (Larry Miller)
won't let her until her older sister Katerina (Julia Stiles) dates.
Problem is Katerina hates everybody! Cameron James (Joseph
Gordon-Levitt) wants to date Bianca and hires tough boy Patrick Verona
(Heath Ledger) to date Katerina. Trouble is Patrick falls for
I can't believe I'm giving a 10 to a teen comedy (I'm in my 40s!) but I
loved this! It's bright, full of color, quick with many interesting
characters and some absolutely hysterical one liners. I laughed out
loud more than once! The script is sharp and just great--it updates
Shakespeare's play in a very affectionate manner.
The acting is just perfect. Stiles has already proved she's a good
actress--she plays the comedy and drama to perfection. Oleynik is
perfect as her younger sister--she could have been too perky but she
wasn't. Gordon-Levitt is touching in his role. Allison Janney has a few
hysterical bits as guidance counselor Ms. Perky and Andrew Keegan plays
the drop dead handsome but obnoxious jerk Joey Donner very well--his
verbal fights with Stiles really work! Ledger is just OK.
There's also a great soundtrack and some truly funny outtakes during
the closing credits along with the band Letters from Cleo belting out a
song on top of the school! The only negative I have is that there was a
bit too much swearing and sexual innuendo for a PG-13 movie. Still, I
loved this movie from beginning to end--funny and moving. Highly

10 things i love about this movie
This is a great movie for teens of all ages (by heart that is). The
acting is great.I honestly believe this is one of Heath's best acting.
And Julia is amazing (like in all her movies). The humor is great too.
In fact i recommend everyone to watch this movie over again and pick up
little tid bits that may have been missed. I have been watching this
movie at least 2 times a mon since it came out on DVD. I just can't get
enough. My obsession is soo bad that i have memorized the whole movie
and i see scenes flash in my brain during random moments in my day. The
humor is a bit vulgar so i suggest to watch w/ an open mind (not for
the easily offended). I hope u enjoy this movie as much as i did (and
still do). Kat (Julia) is a purpose social outcast her sis Bianca is
loves being in the spot light. When Carmero comes to Padua High (as an
army brat) he falls in love w/ Bianca. Bianca is ONLY allowed to date
if Kat does. So Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) is paid (by Joey -Andrew
Kegan) to 'date' Kat. And the story goes from there. Can Kat be
tamed??? and does Cameron end up w/Bianca??? I guess you'll never know
if u don't watch it. Enjoy!!.
