Question: When Michael tells Cameron that Bogie started that rumour at the beginning of the movie, what are Izods? Is it an American thing or something?

Answer: They are a clothing brand, long associated with the 'preppie' type and society's upper crust. Until the emergence of Polo in the mid 80's, 'Izod' (and their alligator logo) was virtually synonymous with 'knit golf shirt.' If one aspires to the silly conventions of wearing such labels for their status, one would never buy them from an outlet mall, only an exclusive high-dollar retailer.

Question: What is the reason Michael tells Cameron his friends abandoned him for at the beginning of the film?

Answer: Michael says "Bogie Levenstein started a rumor that I...that I buy my Izods at an outlet mall."

Question: Kat drove with Patrick, Bianca and her friend to Bogey's party; so if Patrick drove Kat home, why did Bianca need a ride after Joey left with the other girl?

Answer: They all went in Kat's car and Patrick drove it home leaving Bianca behind. I guess she thought Joey would drive her home.

Question: Why is the movie called "10 Things I Hate About You"? I thought it was in reference to Kat's poem, but she lists at least twelve things.

Answer: 10 Things I Hate About You is a play on the title of the Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew. This movie is a modern re-telling of that play. Unlike DiCaprio's version of Romeo + Juliet, this movie doesn't use the original dialogue from Shakespeare. The premises are the same.

Answer: She only says "I Hate" 10 times. Some of those she says more than one thing that bugs her, but written in list form it appears as 10 things.

Shay

Answer: Actually, one of the screenwriters had been looking through her old high school journals for inspiration, when she found a list titled "things I hate about Anthony" (her ex boyfriend). She showed it to the director and he decided to make it the title, also the reason that they wrote the iconic poem for Kat.

Question: In the first classroom scene with Mr. Morgan, what does he call Joey?

Answer: He calls him "Chachi." This seems to be a reference to the "Happy Days" and "Joanie Love Chachi" character Chachi, who was played by Scott Baio. Joey (played by Andrew Keegan) looks like a young Scott Baio.

Question: Why does Joey dislike Kat so much?

Answer: They had sex once, but Kat didn't want to have sex with him again, and that made him angry because he was very narrow-minded and hormonal and wanted sex. It made matters worse that she also threatened to tell the cheering squad that his dick is small, which would ruin his chances of getting sex in the future.

Question: At the start of the film, when Cameron is in Ms Perky's office she tells him Padua won't be any different from his old school and then points at the window. What does she say at this point?

Answer: She says "Same little a*s-wipe sh*t for brains everywhere."

Question: At the party Joey says to Bianca, 'Come on, we're all congregating around Mr. Guervo.' What does that mean?

Answer: Actually it's Mr. Cuervo, as in Jose Cuervo tequila. They are all gathering around the tequila bottle.

Question: Does anyone know where I can find a script for this film, preferably a free one?

Answer: Go to http://www.allmoviescripts.com/scripts/5773164523f305abc3f7c1.html.

Question: In the part where Bianca's friend is asking "I know you can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, but can you ever be just whelmed?" Bianca answers something like, "I think you can be in Europe" What does she mean?

Answer: The answer doesn't mean anything, it's deliberately stupid to show us from her very first scene how much of an airhead Bianca is. The implication is that Bianca's thinking of something practised in Europe that isn't in America.

Shay

Question: In the first classroom scene, what is it that Joey suggests to Mr Morgan that Kat should take "before she comes to class"?

Answer: Her Mydol - pills to help PMS.

Question: Is her name Katherine or Katarina?

Answer: Katarina.
