Can You Guess The Literary Inspiration For These Teen Films?

As if.

  1. Paramount
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    This 1995 teen classic follows Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) through the rough and highly comical terrain of high school. Sure, it's a departure from the English countryside setting of Jane Austen's "Emma," but it's an adaptation, people.

  2. Touchstone
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    There are about 100 Things We Love about "10 Things I Hate About You," one of those is watching a pre-celebrity Heath Ledger fall in love with Julia Stiles. Julia plays, Kat, aka Katherina aka "The Shrew."

  3. Columbia
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Cruel Intentions" starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Selma Blair, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon. The film took a cue from the classic it was based on and taught us that rich people get bored and do some crazy shit.

  4. Miramax
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The film that had the makeover to end all makeovers starred Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook as soulmates who find each other through the help of an ill-executed bet. Sure the '90s setting is a bit different from the original source, but it's still pretty similar.

  5. Columbia
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Whatever It Takes" might not be as famous as other teen flicks, but it stars teen film icon Shane West and a pre A-List James Franco.

  6. Lionsgate
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    A teen film that aims to depress rather than cause laughs — yep, 2001's "O" could only be derived from Shakespeare's "Othello."

  7. Miramax
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Get Over It" might not be that well-known, but it did have an all-star roster of Shane West (now a teen film MVP), Ben Foster, Colin Hanks, Kirsten Dunst, Mila Kunis and Sisqó. That's right, SISQÓ.

  8. Screen Gems
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Easy A," or one of the first times we fell in love with Emma Stone, was obviously based on "The Scarlet Letter." This was your freebie, you guys.

    Screen Gems
  9. DreamWorks
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The film that made the world fall in love with Channing Tatum (well, besides "Step Up") was based on Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night."
