Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })10 Things I Hate About You is a 1999 High School film which was, essentially, a sort of murky, updated High School A.U.-style take on The Taming of the Shrew. The plot is fairly standard for a romantic comedy, and runs as such:Something is rotten in the house of Stratford. It has come to light that Katerina Stratford, the feminist, intelligent, and well, shrewish elder sister, has received an acceptance letter to a college her overprotective father doesn't want her to go to. Bianca, the bubbly, popular younger sister, got a ride home from a boy today. There's much anger and words are exchanged that cannot be taken back, and from all of this a new rule sprouts forth: Bianca can date when Kat does. This is pretty much the end of it for Bianca, as Kat doesn't really do the whole dating thing, preferring to snark and study. However, when Bianca spills this to Cameron, the new kid in town who has a crush on her and is her French Tutor, he develops a plan: Find someone who'll date Kat. But who?Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })The bad boy in town, of course. Enter Patrick Verona. He's mean, he's tough, and he scares off Cameron when he's approached with the idea. However, Michael, Cameron's new friend(ish), comes up with an idea: get Joey, a popular guy with a crush on Bianca, to cough up money for them to bribe Patrick with. This succeeds, and in the end, Patrick woos Kat by essentially being as cantankerous and stubborn as she is, only more romantic. He ends up asking her to the prom, having been given 300 bucks to do it, and while she doesn't go at first, she eventually accepts. The problem? He's actually really starting to like this girl...Despite being a teen romcom, 10 Things received some good reviews for acting, writing and general amusement value (especially if you're familiar with the Shakespeare). 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. Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger had their break-out roles here. In the meanwhile, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (3rd Rock from the Sun) and Larisa Oleynik (the title character from The Secret World of Alex Mack, not to mention JGL's girlfriend on Third Rock) played the roles of Cameron and Bianca. Lastly, David Krumholtz of NUMB3RS, The Addams Family and The Santa Clause played Michael, and Allison Janney had a One-Scene Wonder role as "Miss Perky," the school's incredibly-messed up guidance counselor. (This film is a shining example of Retroactive Recognition.)Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Also has a Sitcom based on it, which aired on ABC Family in 2009 starring Lindsey Shaw as Kat and Ethan Peck as Patrick. More information on it can be found here. Despite only lasting two years and being Cut Short, it amassed an impressive fanbase and was generally considered better than expected for a series recycled from a film.

Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Kat reluctantly agrees to go to Bogey's party so that Bianca can, even if it means Bianca will likely run into Joey. Kat also agreeing to go to the prom, despite having criticised it repeatedly earlier, so that Bianca can attend. Mr. Stratford sends Sarah Lawrence a check at the end so Kat can attend, even though he initially wanted her to stay close to home. When he tells Kat this, she's so happy she actually hugs him.

Instantly Proven Wrong: When New Transfer Student Cameron met Michael, he commented he was thankful that for once the teachers didn't send down "one of those audio visual geeks" to show him around on his first day. Michael laughed at it, which is of course when a guy carrying a bunch of audio visual equipment walks to him and asked "Hey Michael, where should I put those slides?"

Above the Influence: A minor version, as Patrick was taking care of a very drunk Kat at the party but she had seemed to sober up by the time they got home. They started to connect in the driveway and she leaned in for a kiss, only for Patrick to back off. She was annoyed and storms off, but it's the first implication that Patrick was starting to like her and feeling guilty for the payoff.

Chekhov's Gun: The money Joey is paying Patrick to date Kat, and the Fender Strat guitar Kat is seen with in the music store. At the end of the film, Patrick reveals to Kat he used the money to get the guitar for her. Possibly subverted in that it may not be the same guitar, but the idea still stands.

 10 Things I Hate About You / int_26eb6287
comment
Funny Background Event: As Bianca is trying to fire her bow, Joey tries to talk to her. The result is that the arrow misses the target and hits the teacher insteadnote The Coach was kind of asking for it standing in front of the firing line. He was clearly away from the line of fire but Bianca had turned about 60 degrees to her left between Joey's appearance and letting the arrow go. Regardless, that's why the general rule is to stay behind the firing line. Bianca even stops to look before going right back to her conversation. When Coach Chapin is supervising detention several scenes later, he still visibly has trouble sitting down due to his earlier injury.

Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: 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.

Prince Charming Wannabe: Double-subverted with Joey. At first, though, Bianca is attracted to him and wants to be with him instead of Cameron. The trope comes into play starting at Bogey's party when Bianca realizes Joey is extremely self-absorbed, and that Cameron is the better guy of the two, and eventually results in Bianca snapping at Joey at the prom after she finds out from Chastity that Joey only wanted to get with her because of a bet he made with his friends.

Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Cameron has this view towards Bianca, hence the lengths he goes to get her. He gets a rude awakening at the party when she darts off to hang with Joey, and he starts seeing and treating her more like a person. For her part, she also recognizes how shallow she had been.

Jerk with a Heart of Gold
 10 Things I Hate About You / int_4781adbb
comment
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Subverted with Patrick, specifically the jerk part. He's a loner and more than a bit abrasive about the whole bet thing, but as it turns out much of his reputation is just rumors. Mr Stratford. True, he may want what he feels is 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, coming across as an overprotective jerk in the process. He still loves them, though, and despite not wanting Kat to attend Sarah Lawrence, at the end he does allow her to do so, and is impressed when he learns Bianca beat the hell out of Joey. Kat. She comes across as a jerk to almost everyone 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.

Artists Are Attractive: Patrick starts to fall for Kat, in no small part, because of their similar tastes in music His Apology Gift to her is a specific guitar she's wanted for some time. It proves his sincerity not because of its financial value (though that is also substantial) but because it shows he was listening to her and cared about her desires.

comment
The Grovel: After getting Kat so royally pissed off at him that she won't speak to him, Patrick is instructed to "sacrifice yourself on the altar of dignity and even the score." No actual groveling is involved - Patrick opts for a marching-band-assisted rendition of "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" in the middle of her soccer practice instead - but the effect is the same, especially as it also nets him detention.

Non-Indicative Name
 10 Things I Hate About You / int_6509bb9f
comment
Nonindicative Name: "Ten Things I Hate About You" is catchy, but Kat's poem lists more than ten things. The explanation is some of the items may be listed together. The words "I hate" appear in the poem ten times; the words that follow may be lumped together. Thus "I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind" would be one item.

Missing Mom
 10 Things I Hate About You / int_66dfe36a
comment
Missing Mom: Kat and Bianca's mother is absent, and only gets a mention whenever Bianca puts on a set of her pearls before going out. She gets a few more mentions, the implication being that she left the family, and that left the dad feeling out of control, explaining why he's so overprotective of his daughters. She seemed to have been a character in an older version of the script. Whether she left in a taxi or a hearse is never established, but frankly it doesn't change much. In the original script, their mother was present, but spent all of her time at the computer writing romance novels. All of the gags surrounding Ms. Perky's novels originally belonged to Mrs. Stratford. In the series, she's dead.

"Shut Up" Kiss: Bianca does this to Cameron when he calls her out on her actions at the party (He was technically her date, but she spent more time with Joey only to recognize Joey for what he was. Cameron was being a gentleman by driving her home). Probably the best way to get back in his good graces. Subverted later when Kat finally finds out that Patrick was paid to date her. He tries resorting to this to convince her that he really did love her, but she was too angry and pushed him away. Played straight again at the very end of the movie, after Patrick finally wins Kat back by buying her dream guitar for her.

Establishing Character Moment

Establishing Character Moment: The movie opens with a perky pop song* Specifically, their song One Week playing over fun, bouncing credits, as four perky pretty girls roll up to a stop sign in a brightly-coloured sports car... then the pop music is rapidly drowned out by Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation", as a lone, sour-faced young woman rolls up next to them in a beat-up Ford, glaring. Six minutes before we learn her name, five minutes before she ever speaks, and we already know Kat's basic character. Also captured in that wonderful exchange with Miss Perky:

Kat. She comes across as a jerk to almost everyone 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.

Only in It for the Money: Patrick admits this to Cameron and Michael early on about the bet. This attitude soon changes when he starts falling for Kat, and when Kat finds out about the bet, Patrick says he didn't care about the money.

Cool Car: Joey's sports car, a red Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (the Z28 badge can be seen when Kat dents it). Averted with Kat's beat-up Ford, highlighting the difference between her and the other students, best seen in her Establishing Character Moment.

Laser-Guided Karma
 10 Things I Hate About You / int_90e31482
comment
Laser-Guided Karma: For parking in the middle of the road, right behind Kat's car to annoy her, Kat delivers instant karma by reversing into Joey's car, denting it. Michael is kicked out of the Ivy League group at Padua for a petty reason by Bogey Lowenstein, so Michael gets his revenge by planning a house party at Bogey's house without Bogey knowing about it. It also has a side effect for the main characters in that it gives Joey, then Cameron, an excuse to get with Bianca. Also, when Bianca finds out about Joey's ultimate aim to have his way with her on prom night, and now knowing about what he did to Kat in the past, she furiously attacks him.

Foreshadowing: Mr Morgan insulting Joey in his class ("Someday you're gonna get bitch-slapped, and I'm not going to do a thing to stop it" and then "Unless she kicked the crap out of your dumb butt, I don't want to hear about it") sets up how Joey will get his ass handed to him by Bianca at the prom. Bianca tells Cameron in their first meeting that Kat used to be popular but an "unsolved mystery" caused her to become cold and antisocial. Bianca later finds out that it was because Kat went out with Joey before and they went all the way, but when Kat told Joey she wasn't ready to do it again, he dumped her. At Bogey's party, when Kat saw Bianca with Joey, Kat tried to get Bianca alone, but Bianca told her to go away. Kat was going to tell Bianca about her past relationship with Joey that she (and the audience) find out about later.

The Bet: Subverted and, in a way, played straight. Joey is actually just after Bianca because his friends bet him he couldn't sleep with her, but by the time Bianca finds out about this she's already become disenchanted with Joey and realized that Cameron is the better guy. Patrick, while not betting on anything himself, is the one who catches the consequences of the trope when Kat finds out that he was paid to take her out.

Shrouded in Myth: Patrick Verona is supposed to have eaten a live duck, sold his liver on the black market for a new set of speakers, lit a State Trooper on fire, known Marilyn Manson, slept with a Spice Girl (he doesn't think so) and been a porn star, among other things. Kat has a bit of a reputation too. Amusingly, when they discuss this later, it turns out the only thing that's actually true is Kat pulling a Groin Attack on a guy who tried to grope her in the lunch line.

Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Subverted with Cameron and Bianca's decidedly unromantic French tutoring sessions, to Cameron's disappointment. It doesn't get any better once they actually start speaking French either, since he's struggling with basic sentence structure, and she's speaking rapid-fire fluent French about how pissed she is that he's not asked her out yet.

Informed Ability: Kat is supposed to be a good student, being apparently well-read and with high enough grades to get her a place at Sarah Lawrence, but her attempt at iambic pentameter poetry leaves something to be desired.

Lighter and Softer: The Taming of the Shrew was a good bit more misogynistic. Also received a tone-shift between script drafts; the original screenplay is much darker, including a subplot about a suicidal Mandella.

Cool Teacher: Mr. Morgan seems perpetually annoyed with his class, but he has a lot of passion and is very upfront with his students. Most notably, he turned one of Shakepeare's sonnets into a rap, inspiring Kat. "I know Shakespeare is a dead white guy, but he knows his shit."

What the Hell, Hero?: Cameron gives Bianca a piece of his mind when he learns that she was just manipulating him and his feelings towards her to try and get closer to another guy. This is, of course, after Bianca has decided that maybe he's the better choice after all.

All Girls Want Bad Boys: 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. But played straight with Bianca falling for Joey. That is, until she also subverts it by falling for Cameron.

Reconstruction: Has some elements of this with regards to the teen comedy. Kat's anti-social behavior stems from past high school drama and Bianca has a Heel Realization with her It's All About Me attitude.

Screw the Rules, I'm Beautiful!: Bianca believes she can manipulate Cameron's feelings for her based on this. When he finds out, as seen in the What the Hell, Hero? examples below, Cameron disagrees. Joey feels that, as the most handsome man on campus, he can have any woman he wants and be damned her feelings on the matter.

Groin Attack: Bianca to Joey after finding out he placed a bet to nail her on prom night. And the audience cheers. A Noodle Incident equivalent happens in Kat's backstory. ("I still maintain that he kicked himself in the balls.") When Michael is on his bike and accidentally goes tumbling down a hill, he shouts "My balls!" during one of the bounces.

Smoking Is Not Cool: Kat certainly thinks so, and according to Bianca she once said she would rather die before dating a guy who smoked. Patrick gives up to try and appeal to her. She walks away from him after the paint-balling session when he lights up (she also takes the cigarette from his mouth).
