1. There’s One Shakespeare Quote in the First 10 Minutes and Then Never Again
We all know that the movie is based on The Taming of the Shrew, but in case we didn’t, Cameron helpfully reminds us by seeing Bianca and going, “I burn, I pine, I perish,” which is a totally normal thing to say in a 90s high school environment. It’s also a direct quote from the original play, which kinda makes you think there are going to be a couple more quotes scattered throughout. Nope! Just that one random line! And then never again! Okay!
(P.S. Yes, Michael does say more stuff like “assail your ears” and “sweet love, renew thy force” but those are from Hamlet and Sonnet 56 so NICE TRY.)
2. The Whole Black Underwear Thing
Kat is branded a sex freak by sneaky snoops Bianca and Cameron when they find black underwear in her room, because apparently that means “she wants to have sex someday.” Sorry, what? Is Bianca saying she herself DOESN’T want to have sex someday? Like, EVER? Also, Kat is a senior in high school, which is a pretty normal age to think about the POSSIBILITY of SOMEDAY having sex. Also, maybe she just likes how she looks in black underwear. This whole scene was weird.

And we’d get to rub elbows / have sex with the other most attractive people in the decade, namely Prince, Kelly LeBrock in the movie Weird Science, and that’s it! Just those two.
