PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
The character of Patrick is based on The Taming of the Shrew's Petruchio. Heath Ledger drew on Richard Burton's portrayal in The Taming of the Shrew (1967), as well as giving him a "Jack Nicholson edge to him with his cheekiness and his smiles".
Well, the night I take you places you've never been before.
Kat Stratford: Like where, the 7-11 on Broadway?
When Kat and Patrick are on the porch, Kat asks Patrick to tell her something true. When she says this there is a strand of red paint-stained hair on the side of her face. When Patrick kisses her neck, the hair is tucked neatly behind her ear.
During the credits there are practical jokes made by cast and crew and also goofs - including scenes that didn't make the final cut.
