Good heavens. Ten years already since 10 Things I Hate About You came onto the scene with barely a whisper. Whoa, before you categorically denounce me for using the word “whisper” in conjunction with this movie, let me explain myself. You see, 10 Things I Hate About You was released at the same time as The Matrix in 1999. In fact, when 10 Things debuted at No. 2 behind the blockbuster Wachowski sci-fi flick, you could pretty much guess where I was since we all know I’m as manly as it gets (*cough*). Unfortunately, I never failed to discover the movie in theaters.

Being a then-19-year-old American male means I couldn’t openly like romantic comedies in front of the lads. Doing so risks being blackballed…or black-and-blue balled…or kicked in the balls if I were to be caught expressing any interest in watching Heath Ledger or Julia Stiles. Such a sad, »
