A cool cast of young stars is just one of the things you'll love about this hilarious comedy hit! On the first day at his new school, Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- HALLOWEEN: H2O, TV's "3RD Rock From The Sun") instantly falls for Bianca (Larisa Oleynik -- THE BABY SITTERS CLUB), the gorgeous girl of his dreams. The only problem is that Bianca is forbidden to date ... until her ill-tempered, completely un-dateable older sister Kat (Julia Stiles -- THE BOURNE IDENTITY, SAVE THE LAST DANCE) goes out too! In an attempt to solve his problem, Cameron singles out the only guy who could possibly be a match for Kat: a mysterious bad-boy (Heath Ledger -- A KNIGHT'S TALE, THE PATRIOT) with a nasty reputation of his own! Also featuring a hip soundtrack -- this witty comedy is a wildly entertaining look at exactly how far some guys will go to get a date!

It has Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon Levitt doing modern Shakespeare, and it's hilarious, get in on that.
She was so cool and did such an excellent job in her role, that still to this day I consider her to be the coolest teen in any 'teen movie'.
Basic Plot: Cameron (Levitt), a new student at Pagua high school, falls in love with a sophomore named Bianca Stradford (Oleynik).
However, Bianca has a flirtatious crush on the most popular senior at school named, Joey (Keegan). Cameron's sidekick Michael (Krumholtz)tells him, that Bianca is looking for someone to help her with French and Cameron decides that's how he'll ask her out on a date.
Kat Stradford (Stiles) is Bianca's sister. Totally opposite of Bianca, she is anti-social and is the most feminist high school senior you could ever meet. Against boys, dances, and anything having to do with prepiness and silly fun, she swears off dating and finds herself being accepted to Sarah Lawrence a college across the country in hopes to get away from her father and the city she lives in.
Bianca desperately wanting to date, is told by her father (Miller) that she will be allowed to date when her sister Kat does. Desperate and not knowing how to get her sister to 'date for her', ends up asking Cameron, her new French tutor, to help her with her predicament. Enter Patrick (Ledger). An outcast and rumored to have sold his kidneys on the black market for a new set of speakers, also attends Padgua high, and is unsuspecting of what will happen soon in his future.
Cameron and Micheal decide that in order to make this work, they need a backer. "Someone who's stupid, but has money." So they go to Joey, telling him that they know he likes Bianca, and they need him to pay Patrick a tidy sum, to have him date Kat, in order for him to date Bianca. What Joey doesn't know, is that Cameron secretly plans to date Bianca, while he pays Patrick to take out Kat.
It may sound like a very confusing movie. But it is so funny, cleverly written, and not entirely true of American teenage culture, but pretty close. The acting is wonderful and in my opinion nothing in the movie would have worked as well, without the people who played their characters. As I said before I think that Stiles' portration of Kat Stradford was right on, and no one could have done it better. Her best role, more than certainly, and I love this movie so much! I would have to say it's my favorite teen comedy next to The Breakfast Club. One the best movies, and a great watch!
2. It is one of the funniest movies from the 90s.
- Great performances from (3) the late Heath Ledger, (4)Joseph Gordon-Levitt, (5) Julia Stiles, (6) David Krumholtz, and (7) Larry Miller.
8. I usually am not a huge fan of Shakespeare plays or adaptations, but this movie makes Taming of the Shrew more accessible.
9. The soundtrack is fun and engaging. It just fits the mood of the movie.
10. This is one of the few "chick flicks" I am not ashamed to be a huge fan of.
I watched it again to see Heath Ledger, R.I.P. This was his "teen heart-throb" film, which he apparently tried to get out of that typecast for the rest of his career. In it, he plays a bad boy sort-of turned good by the end.
The character of Kat is refreshing. She's a teen girl who doesn't want to conform to the pretty/popular standards, and just wants to focus on schoolwork and do her own thing. By the end, she becomes more balanced and social, learning that it's okay to trust others sometimes and let her hair down a bit.
Parent Concerns? Smoking (Heath Ledger's character smokes), Talk about sex
