10 Things I Hate about You.
Meet the Stratford sisters: pretty and popular Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), who has never had a date; and Kat (Julia Stiles), her older sibling, an ill-tempered harridan whose acerbic wit is matched only by her steadfast determination to alienate any guy who might be remotely interested in her.
Unfortunately, strict rules in the Stratford household by the single father (Larry Miller), who is an obstetrician with a clientele of unwed, young mothers, forbids Bianca from having a boyfriend until her odious sister has one of her own.

The film is funny, lively and enjoyable. But, what if a guy was paid to woo the lass Weird but attractive Patrick (Heath Ledger) suddenly finds himself getting cash to break down the walls surrounding Kat. This movie wasn't brilliant but compared to the mediocre bunch of teen comedy you COULD watch, this is fantastic. Morgan (Daryl Mitchell), a black teacher with no patience and loads of charm. Perky (Allison Janney), who is always thinking pevertedly. What raises this venture a few notches above your normal acne fare is an extremely clever screenplay by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith, TV director Gil Junger's never strident direction. The movie takes place in Seattle and Tacoma, Washington at Padua High, a building that was originally laid out to be a hotel but was later turned in to an actual high school, Stadium High, 1,900 students. He's not alone though, Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a new kid in school, is also after Bianca. Also, the porno-writing guidance counselor, Ms. His motives, though, are purely romantic. His employer is Joey (Andrew Keegan), an obnoxious tube sock model who wants to get into Bianca's pants. Overall, the movie didn't sink to the gross out comedy of so many teen movies and had characters and actors who brought spark and energy to the screen.
