Of all the modern retellings of Shakespeare this is probably one of my favorites. It doesn't try to put Old English into a modern setting and it allows itself to stand on it's own. Most people wouldn't even know it's The Taming of the Shrew unless they are a Shakespearean like myself.
Although I like this movie, it received only 3 stars due to the volatile language. Teenagers should not be swearing so much and the adults did too... If the foul language was out, this would be an exceptional film! It is entertaining and has good music, written and directed well. Plus the location is awesome and I do not live there.
