    ★★½

    The definition of mediocre. An unremarkable end to a deeply forgettable trilogy that was a painfully obvious cash grab and nothing more.

Kat, played by Julia Stiles, is one of my favorite movie characters; her entire outlook on popularity was so gratifying. The scene where Ledger sings “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” was a perfect 3 minutes because it captures a young movie star at the peak of his charisma and…
