TCP#38: 10 Things I Hate About You

Hello dear Couchers! Welcome to the May 11th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes. I know that most of you who are in the Philippines have taken part in making your vote count and have gone out to your voting precincts. You must also be keeping a close watch on the NUMBERS... hoping that your presidential bet will win and usher in a new government that will help the Filipinos and put the Philippines in the map.

But before the NUMBERS carry you away, let us dwell on another NUMBERS matter, that of something rather entertaining and will keep your minds off your problems. Yes, this week's theme for TCP is NUMBERS and if you know of a movie that you really like with NUMBERS in their titles, then come share it with us this week.

My NUMBERS movie is called: 10 Things I Hate About You. It is a 1999 American Romantic Comedy film starring Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. According to Wikipedia, it is "a loose adaptation of Shakepeare's The Taming of The Shrew set in a modern Pacific northwest high school."

The title is a reference to a poem written by the female lead (Julia Stiles as Kat) to describe her bittersweet romance with the male lead (Heath Ledger as Patrick). I just love this part when Kat reads to her class a poem that she made for Patrick. It is actually 14 things but what the heck, I still love the title! This is one of the best romantic comedies I have ever saw in my lifetime.

I love the soundtrack of the movie too as it is very modern and very fitting for the movie's "rebel" theme... and here's one song that I especially like: Your Winter from the band Sister Hazel.

So, what's your NUMBERS movie? Come share it with us and enter your TCP link URL to the MckLinky below:

Thank you for joining us this week you all! Next week's theme: Apocalyptic. Hope to see you all again next Tuesday for another TCP Movie. Take care Couchers and have a great week!
