Two corrections:

Never Been Kissed is based on As You Like It, not Twelfth Night.

And it's Patrick, not Peter Verona in Ten Things.

Not liking My Own Private Idaho is anyone's prerogative but it's
probably a good idea to get the casting straight.  Yes, River Phoenix is
positioned in the role of sidekick of the "prince', hence, I suppose,
Poins.  No, Dennis Hopper isn't in the film.  And in addition to the
piece by Wiseman listed by Dick Burt, there's a brilliant essay on the
film by Curtis Breight published in Shakespeare and National Cultures,
an essay-collection edited by John Joughin.  I use the film as a point
of departure in the Democratic Vistas section of my own recent book,
Repositioning Shakespeare.  Finally, your "liking" or not liking the
film is, I would think, less pertinent to this list-group than
determining how the film stages/reproduces Shakespeare which it does in
very intriguing ways.

I know that "10 Things I Hate about You" is based on Shrew but I didn't
know that Never Been Kissed is any relation to 12th Night. I haven't
seen the film, but the promos don't make it seem very similar. Can you
explain?
