Storyline

Katherine is extremely abrasive in her dealings with everyone, both in Parliament and her personal life. Her sister Bianca couldn't be more different -- a popular model whom everyone loves. Bianca's long time manager wants to marry her; in order to put him off she says she won't marry until her sister is wed (a prospect she knows will keep her safe.) So her manager arranges his friend -- who is a titled Earl -- to meet and marry Kate and the battle is on. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Trivia

They prepared 3 tables and 3 carpets for the scene in which Katherine flips the table over. Each had glasses made of sugar glass and wax plates. All the meals had to be salad so that the food wouldn't melt the plates. Luckily they did it in one take and were able to move out the restaurant so that it could open for lunch. See more »

Goofs

As Harry and Petruchio are getting out of the elevator Harry says, 'You're mad,' and Petruchio begins to adjust his pants. The camera goes to the next shot and Petruchio's hands are back down at his side, and begins to adjust his pants once again. See more »

Quotes

Kate: Fathead!
[she slaps him]
Tim Agnew: You hit me!
Kate: You gave me that information. You made me look like a political pygmy, on Newsnight. Your job, in case you weren't concentrating, is to make sure I know what I'm pigging well talking about!
Tim Agnew: You're out of order, Katherine. I'm sorry, but good grief!
Kate: And you're sacked! No wonder this party has been the opposition for the last ten million light years!
Tim Agnew: You can't sack me, and, frankly, I'd appreciate an apology. Otherwise...

Excellent film, shouldn't be missed
15 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

I really loved it. Not always you can find a so entertaining adaptation, specially of a Shakespeare's play and a comedy!. Laugh and a serious interpretation and reflexion about love and marriage without boring the audience is what this film gives you. A smart script, excellent music and good photography, there's no doubt why this film is so loved by so many people. This film has brilliant actors that keep your eyes on the screen with good lines,sarcasm and fantastic performances. Easily recommended, excellent for those who appreciate Shakespeare's plays and intelligent comedies.

Time watching it is time laughing.
