10 Things I Hate About You is a 1999 American romantic comedy film. It is directed by Gil Junger and starring Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Larisa Oleynik, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Larry Miller. A loose adaptation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew set in a modern American high school, the screenplay was written by Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. The movie's title is a twist on The Taming of the Shrew (see below) but is also a reference to a poem written by the film's female lead to describe her bittersweet romance with the male lead. The film was released March 31, 1999 and was a breakout success for stars Stiles and Ledger.[1][2][3] Image File history File links Download high resolution version (536x720, 87 KB)10 Things I Hate About You film poster File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...

Shakespearean references

10 Things contains many references to Shakespeare's works. Comparison of The Taming of the Shrew and 10 Things I Hate About You reveals some similarities, mostly in character names, general plot ideas, and themes. For starters, the two titles both sound similar and rhyme. A rhyme is a repetition of identical or similar sounds in two or more different words and is most often used in poetry. ...


The two sisters in The Taming of the Shrew are called Katharine and Bianca, while the two sisters in 10 Things are named Katarina, known as Kat, and Bianca. Kat and Bianca's last name is Stratford, making reference to Stratford-upon-Avon, the English town known worldwide as the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Katharina's suitor in Shakespeare's play is Petruchio of Verona, who becomes Patrick Verona in 10 Things. In the movie, the high school is named Padua, the city in which Shakespeare's play is set. Stratford-upon-Avon Stratford-upon-Avon is a town in Warwickshire, England. ... For other uses, see England (disambiguation). ... Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ... Petruchio is the primary male character in William Shakespeares The Taming of the Shrew. ... This article is about the city in Italy. ... Padua, Italy, (It. ...


Comparison of the two works will also reveal similar plot ideas. For instance, Shakespeare's Lucentio wishes to wed Bianca but cannot until her sister is married. Knowing that Bianca cannot enter into any relationships, he poses as a tutor named Cambio in order to become closer to Bianca— much as in 10 Things where the similarly named Cameron takes up French to tutor Bianca. While still posing as Bianca's tutor, Lucentio confers with a somewhat wild character, Petruchio. Like Patrick, he is an out-of-towner and little is known about him. Petruchio agrees to marry Katharina simply for the dowry that comes along with her, allowing Lucentio to pursue Bianca—just as Patrick agreed to date Kat for the money offered to him by Joey.


The characters of 10 Things are unusually verbose, regardless of the cliques to which they belong, which is much in keeping with the style of Shakespeare. At several points the characters also either directly quote Shakespeare or allude to his style of writing in their own speech, typically for comedic value. For example, upon seeing Bianca for the first time, Cameron declares "I burn, I pine, I perish!" Also, when Michael pulls out on his motorbike in front of Kat and she apprehends him, he calls her "the shrew." This article is about social groups, for other uses see Clique (disambiguation). ...


An additional tie-in to the work of Shakespeare is the fetish that the character Mandella (Susan May Pratt) has for things Shakespearean, including costumes, plays and poetry. In an apparent third (although not quite as developed as the two lead couples in the final film) coupling, Michael falls for Mandella while learning about Kat. The attraction begins when he starts to quote Macbeth to her and she finishes the line. Mandella is told later in the film that William Shakespeare will be her date to the prom. Fulfilling the promise, Michael appears dressed as William Shakespeare. The title of the song "Cruel To Be Kind" by Letters to Cleo is taken from a line from Hamlet. Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ... Susan May Pratt (born February 8, 1974 in Lansing, Michigan) is an American actress. ... This article is about Shakespeares play. ... Prom Queen redirects here. ... Letters to Cleo were an alternative rock band from Boston, Massachusetts (although they originally started out as a ska band). ...


The Shakespeare references continue when Kat is assigned to write her own version of Shakespeare's Sonnet 141. Her poem becomes "10 Things I Hate About You." In Sonnet 141, William Shakespeare describes a woman whose appearance (his eyes note a thousand errors in her appearance) does not elicit love, nor does her. ...


Kat's 10 Things I Hate About You

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car.
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you.
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

SPLICEDwire: "10 Things I Hate About You" review (758 words)
"10 Things I Hate About You" -- a "Clueless"-spawn remake of "The Taming of the Shrew" -- while an above average entry in the recent pool of teen-targeted pics, is sorely lacking in this arena.
Although "10 Things" frequently throws comedic curve balls of unexpected creativity and wonderful wit (one small example is how ruthlessly tart Padua High's teachers are), most of the picture is flat, spiritless and hopelessly staged.
I mean, I wasn't expecting iambic pentameter here, but while "10 Things" starts promisingly enough with a scattered lines of snappy dialogue (going out with Kat is referred to as "extreme dating"), it quickly degrades to the point that the allegedly edgy lead characters end up rather generic.
Mutant Reviewers from Hell do "10 Things I Hate About You" (3213 words)
When 10 Things isn't relapsing into freshman lit or reinforcing the message that Different and Original is Bad, it pulls out quite a few titter-inducing scenes.
10 Things I Hate About You was released in 1999 as a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew.
Cameron rambles on about how being beautiful doesn’t give Bianca an excuse to treat people the way she does and how much he just wanted to be with her and he won’t stop talking until finally she just kisses him.
