10 Things I Hate About You: Modern Shakespeare

10 Things I Hate About You is an ironic title for our topic today but what else would you name modern-day Taming of the Shrew?

Quick Summary~

So there’s this one really cute girl, Bianca, everyone wants to date at school but she can’t date unless her sister is. Her sister, Kat is difficult, to say the least. So our main character, Cameron, hatches a plan to manipulate dinglehopper Joey to pay bad boy Patrick to date Kat. That way, Cameron can date Bianca. Meanwhile, Bianca actually likes Joey. Spoiler alert: Cameron and Patrick win the girls by investing in their hearts, not just being “nice guys”.
