The review of this Movie prepared by Faiza Iqtidar

In this modern retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, Bianca and Katrina (Stiles) are sisters whose father says that Bianca can't date until Kat does. This is a problem for pretty, popular Bianca because Kat has made herself anti-social and the whole highschool is afraid of her. Cameron (who likes Bianca) tries to help her out by convincing the "rich model boy" Joey (who wants Bianca for other reasons) to pay outcast/rebel Patrick to date Kat. What happens when Kat and Patrick learn to love?

Bianca wants to date, but can't until her sister Kat does. Cameron falls in love with Bianca, and tricks Joey into paying Patrick to go out with Kat. Kat is reluctant, but eventually falls in love with Patrick, and then finds out about what Joey did. The worst thing (as Kat sees it) is that there is no one she hates more than Joey.

Cat doesn't want to date. Bianca does. Bianca is only allowed to date if Cat does. What a dilemma. What should Bianca do? Of course! Hire someone to date the not-well-liked Cat! Lots of laughs.
The review of this Movie prepared by Harlee

A teenage girl can't date until her older sister does, the problem is her sister is cruel and mean to everyone in the school, so no one wants to date her, until Patrick comes along. The only reason Patrick wants to date her though is because he is being paid to by the one guy she really hates.
