Last night I caught most of "Clueless" on telly and this got me wondering. What would Austen/Shakespear/etc make of the remakes of their classics in a modern setting? I've never read Emma or seen a film adaptation so I can't compare it, but "10 Things I hate about you" certainly seemed to capture the essence of "The Taming of the Shew".
Amusingly I've also heard a rumour that they're planning on making a TV show based on 10TIHAU. Weird.
