Comparison and Contrast of Two Movies

“New Waterford Girl” “10 Things I Hate About You”

Movies and books tend to have similar themes. Teen angst is and has been a popular theme of many books and movies (Garvin, 2006). Almost all of us have come across several movies with the title that spells ‘teenage stuff’. Where some are witty and fun, there are some on the other hand that depict in depth issues and concerns relating to teenagers and give out a rather darker and grave side to their lives. Two such movies that have caught my attention and engaged me are Allan Moyle’s “New Waterford Girl,” and Gil Junger’s “10 Things I Hate About You.”

Where one is a serious yet a typical teenage movie followed by a teenage scenario in the 1950’s, the other is the funny, and hilarious remake of Taming of the Shrew in the form of a 90’s teenage scenario, the other follows a rather serious theme, but a typical teenage movie nonetheless of the same time period. There may be a difference of a story between the three flicks, but the issues are comparable and all the more relevant to parent and teenager relationships, where fathers are highlighted and their impacts upon their children.

Relationship of a Father and a Teenager

The most vivid and deep relationship shown in both the movies that provokes discussion is that of a father and a teenager. The relationships that are the most obvious in the two movies are those between Kat and Bianca and their father in 10 Things I Hate About You and that between Mooney Pottie and her father in New Waterford Girl. In each cases fathers produced immense and strong influence upon the teenagers and force them into doing certain things, from slightly wrong to drastic, but the causes traceable directly to their parent. Comparatively, the fathers’ attitudes are justified to an extent and not justified at the other.
