Quick review:
When a high school girl is told she can't date until her older sister does, she tries to match her temperamental sibling with just the right guy (if this sounds familiar, it's a variation on Shakespeare's ``Taming of the Shrew''). Julia Stiles (``Wicked'') plays the older sister with just the right combination of feminist rage and broken heart. But the real key to this film's success is director Gil Junger's ability to ride herd on an Elizabethan update that is both faithful to the original story and true to the feel for life in the late '90s.
