Gil Junger's feel good teen comedy is loosely based on Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, with Heath Ledger as Patrick Verona and Julia Stiles as Katarina Stratford.

He accepts a bribe to take her to the prom so that her sister can take the beau of her choice, but when Katarina finds out, she's furious. Just as Patrick realises her true character and falls for her... Cue many hysterical misunderstandings, including a wonderful set piece on an athletics field involving a marching band.

Released at a time when teen movies were both popular and numerous, 10 Things I Hate About You manages to distinguish itself by not conforming to the sickly sweet tone that so many other films of this genre adopted. Yes it is cliché ridden, but it's spiky script, borderline adult humour and fine performances from both leads and the supporting cast make this a worthy modern (all be it loose) adaptation of Shakespeare's work.
