10 Things I Hate About You
1999: Gil Junger

This free teen adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew is actually somewhat more faithful to the underlying concept, and certainly more entertaining, than many might suspect. Unlike some others of its own ilk (e.g., She’s the Man, a rancid takeoff on Twelfth Night), it preserves something of the tonality of the original story and yet makes its own points along the way.

For some this is probably chiefly noteworthy as an early work with Heath Ledger, who plays the Petruchio-correspondent character.
