10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU

A modern retelling of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew," 10 THINGS ABOUT YOU introduced America to the magic of Heath Ledger. But more importantly, it's the perfect teen movie. From the blow-out house party (Bogie Lowenstien's) to the band cameo (Letters to Cleo) to the grand gesture of love (oh, that bleacher serenade), this film takes every high school movie cliche and jubilantly elevates it to perfection. The cast, including an adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt and super sassy Allison Janney, is incredibly charming, and the writing is both hilarious and authentic without ever condescending to its audience. I don't just love this movie, I Prada backpack love this movie. (Sarah Pitre)
