Okay. So after she finally falls for her would-be Petruchio (Aussie hunk Ledger), Stiles’ tamed shrew Kat actually rattles off 13 things she hates about him in 10 Things I Hate About You. Whatever. This surprisingly well-acted Shakespeare update works because it stays truer to the Bard than it does to its teen-friendly title.

Reel Goodies The always phenomenal Allison Janney (”American Beauty”) cameos as Ms. Perky, a kinky guidance counselor at Padua High who’s in need of some serious taming as well. The Last Detail Upcoming mall-rat-skewed versions of ”Othello” and ”Hamlet” are also slated to feature Stiles, a sometime Calvin Klein Jeans model.
