MOVIE TRIVIA …
10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU
The title "10 Things I Hate About You" sounds remotely like "Taming Of The Shrew" (on which this film is based).
Julia Stiles originally auditioned for the role of Bianca Stratford.
Larisa Oleynik and Joseph Gordon-Levitt also date each other in "3rd Rock from the Sun" (1996), as Tommy and Alissa.
