42. April 18, 2010 - 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

This is another of the great teen movies of the 90s and one of the only versions that makes Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew a palatable story. It's what made Heath Ledger a star and these scene where he serenades Julia Stiles from the bleachers is how I want to remember him. Forget The Dark Knight or anything else - for me he will always be Patrick Verona. On the other hand, this was one of Andrew Keegan's last roles. Whatever happened to him? Allison Janney is the most memorable, however, in her small role as the school guidance councilor who spends her free time writing a porn novel in her office.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
