10 Things I Hate About You
Short plot summary

A tale of two sisters, one a party goer, the other a free thinking no nonsense kinda gal. To take out the party goer, boy has to get a date for the other sister, which he does by paying a free thinking no nonsense kinda guy (played by Heath Ledger).

They go out and, eventually, they fall in love.

Rating
Teen Advisory: Contains moments of literary wit, intelligent debating points, brass bands.
What our panel of critics thought

"The up chuck reflex! Oh, how that brought back fond, but sticky, memories of my High School substance abuse sessions! All I know now is that I still cannot stick together the smallest pieces of paper without the room going round in circles! Oops!"

"An even better performance of singing a song to woo a girl than Tom Cruise in Top Gun. A triumph, with just as much vest popping muscle, but none of that mucking about in jets."

"Loved the pregnancy suit. Thank goodness she took it off before going out."

Please tell me the ending

At a party she is told that he was paid to go out with her. She is upset.

She reads a poem in class - 10 things I hate about you, which ends, basically, I don't hate you at all, babe. He gives her a guitar to set up her own band, they hug and make up. It all ends happily ever after in the sunshine.

Dr Bravisimo-Encore II Movie Review

Oh, a populist rendition of a Shakespeare tale, acted with sexy chicks in short skirts and hunky guys in vests. MMhh! I was ensconced in the moment and enjoyed this movie with great immensity

The movie is quite a troublesome vixen. It risks angering both the teen brigade and Shakespeare lovers but I care not for these turgid extremists who may twitter against the essence of this voluptuous enterprise.

The end product is a movie of wit and young supple flesh the likes we rarely see but when we do it sends us into paroxysms of rhapsody. In my top ten Shakespeare type movies of the last 10 years. A total sunshine filled by the seaside joy. Awesome, dudes and dudesses!

Quotable quotes (real)
"I happen to love being adored thank you."
Other comments

A sunny skied, good looking, enjoyable romp in the complex Shakespeare world we wish had existed when we had to study it at school. A rock Shakespeare. Thoroughly enjoyable once you get into the swing of the modern language Shakespeare styling.
