Wishful Wednesday: 10 Things I Hate About You

View Above Cloud Scene

Let’s all take a break from the dreaded midweek slump… and let our imagination run wild. Here are our favorite movie moments and images from 1999’s classic movie 10 Things I Hate About You. They’ll take your mind off everything else. Who doesn’t like a good daydream?

Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger as heartthrob Patrick Verona… need we say more? In order to get through this Wednesday afternoon we’re choosing to daydream about the amazing moment when Patrick sings Can’t Take My Eye Off You to Kat Stratford (played by Julia Stiles). If his awesome dance moves, overly-romantic gesture and sexy smile aren’t enough to take your mind off of work, just look at those eyes! Starring at Heath may be the best thing about this week — and we’re totally OK with that.

Aw, baby Joseph Gordon-Levitt! 10 Things I Hate About You gave us the adorable Cameron James (played by Joseph) — a guy who creates a crazy plan to date Bianca Stratford (played by Larisa Oleynik). We love every second that Cameron is on screen. From his terrible attempt at learning French to getting punched in the face at prom… he’s so cute. We could stare at this pic all day — and we just might.

Best 10 Things Line

The only thing getting us through today is reminiscing about how amazing 10 Things I Hate About You truly is. It’s been 15 years since the cult classic was released — and we can still quote almost every line. The best line to brighten Wednesday is courtesy of Walter Stratford (Kat and Bianca’s dad). It’s pure genius and totally hilarious. It goes like this:

Chastity: “Mr. Stratford, it’s just a party!”

Walter: “And hell is just a sauna!”

We know you have to get back to work already… well, maybe take just another minute! Don’t forget to come back next Wednesday for more! Tell us what keeps you going on Wednesday with #wishfulwednesday.
