10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

10 Things I Hate About You film.jpg

I love this movie, so much. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, I love the modern adaptation!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is positively adorable, and Larisa Oleynik is more “grown-up” after her stint as the main character on Nickelodeon’s The Secret World of Alex Mack.

Then, there’s the polar opposites of Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. Swoon! Julia Stiles, as Kat, takes no prisoners and I love it. I love how the four of them are intertwined almost from the start. And Larry Miller as Kat and Bianca’s overprotective father is funny, yet also relatable!

I’ll probably watch this movie again this weekend. It’s somewhat of a guilty pleasure movie for me now.


Come back tomorrow for a new movie!


Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂

  1. I love 10 Things I Hate About You so much!

  2. I love, love, love, LOVE this movie!!! “The Taming of the Shrew” is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays & I love Kat’s character here – strong, feminist, but very, very human. ❤
