All the Rage

Entertainment Weekly
October 29, 1999

"Old fashions please me best,'' says Bianca in The Taming of the Shrew. Renters of high school flicks seem to be just as attracted to the styles of yester-year. While The Rage: Carrie 2 -- the sequel to Brian De Palma's 1976 adaptation of Stephen King's Carrie -- rented 25 copies per store and took third place, 10 Things I Hate About You -- a teen update of William Shakespeare's Shrew (c. 1593) -- moved an average of 22 and came in at No. 4.
