10 Things I Love About “10 Things I Hate About You”

It recently came to light that our own Selena McIntosh has never seen the 1999 cinematic masterpiece that is 10 Things I Hate About You. Obviously, we need to convince her to remedy that.

1. It has Allison Janney. She writes bad erotica and cusses hilariously.

2. It realistically shows a sisterly relationship, complete with horrifying late ’90s fashion.

3. Heath Ledger sings and dances.

  1. I still remember this movie as being the first romantic comedy after which I admitted it might be nice to some day have a boyfriend. That is, if dating was like in the movie, with paint-balling and making out, and having a guy sing songs in the bleachers. I was 16 or 17, and my friends were astounded and triumphant that they had finally found a chick flick that I didn’t make fun of the whole way through!
