This classic 90s rom-com will forever be at the top of the charts. “10 Things I hate About You” is a modern interpretation of Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew,” where Lucentio falls in love with Bianca but cannot be with her until her “shrewish” older sister, Katherina, is married. With stars like Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gabrielle Union, and Allision Janey, acting performances were quite notable. “10 Things I Hate About You” has a 71 % on the Tomatometer and a 69 % audience score.
