OK, I'll admit it: I dislike teensploitation flicks as much as the next person, and so it was with surprised eyes that I saw 10 Things I Hate About You, a terrible title standing in front of an excellent movie. Much like Clueless propelled Jane Austen's Emma to new heights, 10 Things takes on endlessly adaptable Shakespeare and emerges as a cohesive, well-developed winner. Taming of the Shrew in high school, basically.
