Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At times the pic doesn't even seem certain which decade it's set in; the squeaky-clean high school environs often feel more '80s than '90s."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"The movie wimped out by blanding down the story and the characters to the point where she isn't really a shrew and he isn't really a maniac."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Steeped in a smartness and sincerity becoming of its Shakespearean roots."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Takes an old story and proves the themes are timeless by applying them to a modern setting."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Of all the teen films released this year, this one is, by far, the best."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"Stiles grows into her character and Ledger is effortlessly charming."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"The notion of a contemporary high school as a hotbed of romantic intrigue is utterly apt, and the performances almost make the update work."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"A good but patchy romantic comedy, 10 Things I Hate About You does not break new ground, but there are plenty of surprises that will insure a good watch."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Gil Junger's TV roots are revealed in his excessive reliance on close-ups and the cast's preponderance of TV actors."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Pure of heart and perfectly executed."
‑ Brad Laidman, Film Threat
"Stiles nails her feminazi, bound-for-Sarah Lawrence shtick, but just as easily melts into giggles or pulls off a slapstick drunk scene."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"As satirical as it is romantic, this is one teen film that is wise enough to span generations in its appeal."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"...a slightly above average teenage romcom."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It sounds awful, but Junger's movie is utterly winning."
‑ , Film4
"The largely unknown cast sparkles."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
