10 Things I Hate About You, Vol. 1 DVD Review

Remember this movie? Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, that chick from that Nickelodeon show... I think her name is Larissa something or other. Anyway, that movie was pretty good. ABC Family, who is starting to become more recognized for its quality original series, has taken that movie and turned it into a TV show. (This was actually based on one of Shakespeare's plays... Taming of the Shrew? Not sure.)

"From the director of the original hit movie comes the hilarious ABC Family Series 10 Things I Hate About You. Viewers will experience the ultimate sibling rivalry when they meet Kat (Lindsey Shaw) and Bianca (Meaghan Jette Martin), two very
different sisters who have their own unique views on high school life and teenage love. Kat is a feisty, smart student activist who wants to stand out, and Bianca is a sweet social butterfly who just wants to fit in. Things get a lot more complicated, however, when Kat meets the mysterious Patrick Verona (Ethan Peck). Fans can experience every episode of Volume One, complete with exciting bonus features, available only on DVD. 10 Things I Hate About You is a witty and fun family comedy with something for everyone."

Like many of the shows on ABC Family, the acting leaves me cringing from time to time, but I think this show has staying power and that will hopefully lead to a more comfortable acting situation for the young talent. It is definitely funny at times and the characters are very realistic.

Family Time Factor
: Well, it's ABC FAMILY for a reason. This is a good show to watch as a family, but I'd say 10 and up for kids.

MOTR Grade: B-

10 Things I Hate About You, Volume 1 is now available on DVD!!!
