On January 5th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is releasing 10 Things I Hate About You (Two Disc Special Edition – Includes DVD & Digital Copy) 10th Anniversary Edition. I watched this movie last night and really liked it. I saw it when it first came out but had forgotten quite a bit about the movie.
“10 Things I Hate About You” stars the late Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles. It was so good to see a movie with Heath Ledger in it. After his death, I had a hard time seeing anything with him. He was one of my favorite actors! Be sure and watch the bonus features. It has some great footage of Heath.
Check out some images from the movie:

• Audio Commentary with co-writers Karen Lutz and Kirsten Smith, and stars Andrew Keegan, David Krumholtz, Larisa Oleynik and Susan May Pratt Padua High sophomore Bianca Stratford (Larisa Oleynik) has two invitations to the prom and one big problem: her father (Larry Miller) won’t let her go unless her older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) agrees to attend as well. It looks like both girls are staying home, since independent and unconventional Kat has no interest in going—until she meets the school’s mysterious new bad boy Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger). What she doesn’t know is that her sister’s suitors (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Andrew Keegan) have ponied up $300 to convincePatrick to woo her. Just as Patrick realizes he has unexpectedly fallen for his “assignment,” Kat finds out about the scheme and Patrick has to launch an all out campaign to win her back. Inspired by Shakespeare’s “TheTaming of the Shrew,” 10 Things I Hate About You takes a witty and contemporary look at the eternal battle between the sexes, high-school style.
