10 Things I Hate About You mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Kat and Patrick are playing paintball right before they kiss you can see that they are barely covered in paint. When they do kiss and are on the ground, they are totally covered with it. (01:06:35)

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Joey draws the penis on the guy's face, the penis drawing gets darker and more defined between when Joey initially drew it and the next. (00:20:25)

Continuity mistake: When Joey stops his convertible at the back of Kat's car, it's parked with his left fender right behind the other car's back bumper. But when Kat reverses, it's a few feet further forward so she hits the left door. (00:25:40)

Continuity mistake: When Bianca takes Cameron to Kat's room, she opens the third drawer. But when the camera angle changes, it's the second drawer that's opened. (00:31:35)

Continuity mistake: When Cameron's friend is putting on his helmet before he goes on the motorbike you can clearly see the goggles strap over the helmet. He gets on his bike and is run off the cliff but after he gets up the strap is nowhere to be seen but his goggles are still on. (00:11:20)

Continuity mistake: In the second scene where Cameron and Michael are talking to Pat in the shop, Pat puts down a bunch of triangles onto a glass surface. When the camera changes shots, he suddenly has more triangles in his hand, and he puts them down again. (00:30:00)

Continuity mistake: During the prom scene Save Ferris is playing 'I Know'; it switches from the middle back to the beginning and then the end of the song over the course of the scene. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: After Pat serenades Kat on the field, you see a shot of a "Detention Sign-In" board, where there are 9 names written, including that of Patrick Verona. However, inside the class, there are at least 14 people, all who are visible when Kat walks through the door. (01:05:00 - 01:05:50)

Continuity mistake: When Michael is on his scooter, his goggles are up on his helmet, but a split second later when he pulls up to Cameron, the goggles are on his face. It's all one continuous sequence and he's in shot the whole time - there's no chance for him to pull them down without us seeing. (00:11:00)

Continuity mistake: When Kat and Patrick are in the car after the party, when they're driving there's no rear view mirror, but one appears once they stop. (00:49:30)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kat rams Joey's car her hands continuously change position on the steering wheel without Kat actually moving. First she's reaching under it, then in a closeup she puts her hand on it from above, then in the original angle her hand's underneath again. (00:25:35)

Continuity mistake: When she's talking to the guidance counsellor, in the close-ups we can see some stadium lighting outside the window over the counsellor's shoulder. In the wide shots it disappears, and is replaced by the sea. It's definitely the same window - the ornaments on the window sill are the same, and the plant to the right is the same. (00:08:25)

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Patrick talks to Kat after soccer practice, her ponytail keeps moving from behind her shoulder to in front of it. (00:24:00)

Continuity mistake: When Patrick bores a hole in Cameron's French book, the spade bit damages the book's dust jacket as well, but when the book is held up the circular hole is perfect, and the hole's position is a bit off from the initial shot.

Continuity mistake: After paintball, when Patrick parks the car in front of Kat's house, the car is by the walkway (between the grass) near the corner, but as they walk onto the porch the car is actually parked about 30-ft behind where it was previously parked.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the teacher asks Kat why the school can't buy a book "written by a black man." the white Rastas are next to and slightly in front of the teacher as they raise their fists in support, yet as the camera switches to the front view, the teacher is in front of the class and they are at least ten feet away.

Continuity mistake: While Verona is asking out Cat for very first time on the soccer field the sun changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Patrick starts singing and gets that marching band to play, look closely at the field and stairs - the sun is changing from shot to shot.

Other mistake: In the scene where the kids are shooting arrows and the coach gets hit by one, they send a girl to call 911. If you look closely and follow her in the background, after she runs a few yards, she slows down and eventually stops and stands there playing with her hair. Talk about help... (00:57:05)
