This week marks the 15th anniversary of "10 Things I Hate About You," the high-school romcom detailing the complicated love affairs of sisters Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) and Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles). Also starring Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and David Krumholtz, "10 Things" earned just $38 million at the domestic box office, narrowly topping its $30 million budget, but the movie became a cult hit with its quotable lines and Shakespearean inspiration.

In celebration of the release of "10 Things," we've collected 10 things we love about the film. Indulge your nostalgia and take a look:

1. The concept of being whelmed.

4. Larry Miller as single dad Walter Stratford with his creative parenting techniques.
