YMMV: 10 Things I Hate About You

This movie contains examples of:

  • Ear Worm: Letters to Cleo's cover of "I Want You To Want Me"
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The part where Patrick tries to wake up Kat ("Come on, open your eyes!").
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Kat reads books such as "The Bell Jar". Julia Stiles played the protagonist in the 2012 film.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Joey is a jerk, to be sure, but his "bitter, self-righteous hag" comment wasn't entirely off.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Allison Janney as Ms Perky. Technically a Two Scene Wonder.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Holy crap, John Blake and The Joker went to high school together?
  • Tear Jerker: The scene where Kat read the poem at the top of the main page in class. More specifically it was meant for Patrick. Kat starts to get tears in her eyes and cries as she's reading, and the camera goes to Patrick (Heath Ledger) and you see he got kind of upset too.
    • That would be because the script didn't call for tears, but she actually started crying anyway. Most likely, that was also Heath's reaction to seeing her cry.
    • Heath Ledger singing his version of "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" to Julia Stiles. Especially when he sings the line "And I thank God I'm alive..."
  • The Woobie: Cameron, particularly in the scene at the party when Bianca walks away from him...
