* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted with Katarina and Patrick. She only starts to like him when he's not being a jerk and it's his persistence that wins her over, not his bad boy charms.

* BetaCouple: Cameron and Bianca become this to Kat and Patrick after Bianca realizes Cameron is a better person than Joey.



* BitchInSheepsClothing: Michael makes Bianca out to be one at the start of the film.
** Chastity. She reveals her true colours at Bogey's party when she goes off with Joey afterwards (Bianca even calls her a bitch after that happens), then shows up at the prom with Joey seemingly just to rub it in Bianca's face that Joey was going to nail her after the prom all because of a bet with his friends.

Despite being a teen romcom, ''10 Things'' received some good reviews for acting, writing and general amusement value. It's still fondly remembered years later because of that. Most notably, it put its two leads on the map as dramatic actors to watch in the future. Creator/JuliaStiles and Creator/HeathLedger had their break-out roles here. In the meanwhile, Creator/JosephGordonLevitt (''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'') and Larisa Oleynik (the title character from ''Series/TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack'', not to mention JGL's girlfriend on ''Third Rock'') played the roles of Cameron and Bianca. Lastly, David Krumholtz of ''{{Numb3rs}}'', ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' and ''Film/TheSantaClause'' played Michael, and Creator/AllisonJanney had a OneSceneWonder role as "Miss Perky," the school's incredibly-messed up guidance counselor. (This film is a shining example of HeyItsThatGuy and RetroactiveRecognition.)

* MomentKiller: While sitting on the swings outside Bogey's party, Kat remarks on Patrick's eyes. It looks like there will be a tender moment between the two, only for Kat to vomit seconds later.

* CallingTheOldManOut: Mr Stratford, being an OverprotectiveDad, gets three small ones, one from Kat and two from Bianca, where Kat lays into him for not letting her attend Sarah Lawrence and to stop trying to control her life because he can't seem to control his, and Bianca even calls him severely unhinged when he won't allow her to attend the prom if Kat isn't going.



* EvilIsSexy: Joey. He's definitely a bad guy and still a looker. [[spoiler:Maybe it's what attracted Kat to him in the backstory.]]



* ItsAllAboutMe: Joey has this attitude. It's this that causes Bianca to realise [[WrongGuyFirst that Cameron is the better guy]].

* {{Jerkass}}: Joey. He makes a bet with his friends that he can get his way with Bianca whether she wants it or not, even trying to do so after she has realised Cameron is better than him, [[spoiler:and we later learn that he dumped Kat after she told him that after they slept together, she wasn't ready to do it again.]]
** Chastity too. She reveals her true colours at Bogey's party when she goes off with Joey afterwards, then shows up at the prom with Joey seemingly just to rub it in Bianca's face that Joey was going to nail her after the prom all because of a bet with his friends.



** Mr Stratford. True, he may want what's best for Kat and Bianca, but he does it by essentially not wanting them to grow up and have their own lives and doing what they want. He still loves them, though, [[spoiler:and despite not wanting Kat to attend Sarah Lawrence, at the end he does allow her to, and is impressed when he learns Bianca beat the hell out of Joey.]]
** Kat. She comes across as a jerk to almost everyone [[spoiler:due to what happened between her and Joey in the backstory]]. She refuses to let Bianca date Joey or to date anyone seemingly just so Bianca can't. She's still a good person under it all and Bianca sees Kat's point eventually about Joey. Of course, her good side comes round full-circle when she decides to go to the prom just so Bianca can attend and have a good time.



* MrFanservice: Patrick and Joey. [[spoiler:In Joey's case, it's what attracted him to Kat in the backstory.]]



* OverprotectiveDad: in addition to the whole MissingMom thing, he's also a natal specialist who evidently deals with a lot of teenagers.
