15 Reasons We Love 10 Things I Hate About You

Look, I know that this should probably be a 10 reasons list since the name of the movie is 10 Things I Hate About You – but there are more than 10 reasons that this movie is amazing and I’m not good at paring things down. I’m also not good at putting things into any kind of order, so I’d appreciate it if you could do that in the comment sections below.

I’d love to know what your top 3 reasons are. And if it’s a reason that isn’t on this list – AWESOME! 

I fell in love with this movie when it first came out on video and in my 1st year of college we watched it once a week. I know most of the lines. I can watch it at any time. I just plain love it.

15. It’s Shakespeare!

14. Julia Stiles getting her Hip Hop on before Save The Last Dance

13. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger on the same screen

12. Joey “Eat Me” Donner teaching us the difference between the Bathing Suit and Underwear poses

11. Finding out that you can be whelmed in Europe

10. Appearances and performances by Letters To Cleo and Save Ferris

9. A Dawson’s Creek reference!
Bianca: Can we, for two seconds, ignore the fact that you’re severely unhinged and discuss my need for a night of teenage normalcy?
Mr. Stratford: What’s normal? Those damn… Dawson’s river kids sleeping in each other’s beds and what not?

8. Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You as performed by Patrick Verona in the stands of the high school stadium

7. THE ONE LINERS

6. Reginald’s quivering member

5. This step in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s transition from child star on 3rd Rock From The Sun to now.

4. This: “I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.”

3. Introducing us to Gabrielle Union before she told Kirsten Dunst to bring it.

2. For teaching teenagers the difference between like and love and how you can love one thing if you don’t have the other thing…
Bianca: There’s a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.
Chastity: But I love my Skechers.
Bianca: That’s because you don’t have a Prada backpack.

1. The reminder of how charming and handsome and talented Heath Ledger was from his breakout role until he played The Joker…
