1. With colorful paper puppets, skateboarding races, and pop tunes, Shakespeare gets a vibrant, hip makeover in Italy's first stop-motion animated feature.

    In this update of the classic play, Petruchio is a smooth-talking wolfish rogue with money to burn. Kate is the fiery, free-thinking daughter of a spaghetti magnate who scandalizes Verona with her conviction that women can do anything. (And she proves it: no one can match her wicked talents with a skateboard or a sword!)

    Petruchio needs a rich wife to pay off his debts and Kate's father needs to find someone who'll marry his spitfire of a daughter. It seems like a perfect trade-off--too bad Kate despises Petruchio! Meanwhile, her frivolous sister Bianca is in a bind of her own: she just agreed to marry a wealthy geezer, but now she's got a wandering eye for that cute drummer.

    Will she, Kate, and Petruchio each get their happy ending?
