10 Things I Hate About You: TV Show Vs. Movie

I loved the movie 10 Things I Hate About You (with Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger). And despite the controversy, I was ecstatic to watch the premiere of ABC Family's TV version last night.

Did you see it?

The 10 Things... controversy stems for the fact that fans of the original high school romantic comedy (from 1999) don't think you should remake a classic. Why mess with what works?

What did I think? I thought it was great! The writing was funny, the characters like-able, the story-line followed close enough to that of the movie. Plus, the actor who played the dad in the movie (Larry Miller) is also in the TV version! It's not as good as the movie, but I'd recommend it as a good way to spend 30 minutes.

What do you think about 10 Things I Hate About You? Do you prefer the film or the TV show?
