These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: 10 Things I Hate About You
This movie contains examples of:
Designated Hero: The film presents Kat as an intelligent, nonconformist role model, but she judges people harshly before getting to know them, she's intolerant of different opinions, and she never has to change any of this.
Ear Worm: Letters to Cleo's cover of "I Want You To Want Me"
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. This troper always feels sad whenever Kat starts to get tears in her eyes and cries as she's reading, especially when 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.
