- Teenaged termagant Kat has sworn off men for a very good reason. Enter bad boy Patrick and a handful of scheming friends and siblings, and you have yourself a semi-clever retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew
- Seattle and Tacoma have never looked better on film. Stadium High School was an inspired place to film. Although I seriously doubt anyone is ever allowed to have a paintball fight at Gasworks Park.
- Early roles for both Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. Julia makes some interesting acting choices.
- Love, love, love the adults here: Allison Janney and Daryl Mitchell. Nice work, you two.
- Karen McCullah also wrote House Bunny
- Tagline: How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways.
