During a Q&A with the screenwriters, Karen McCullah revealed where the title came from. "The title is based on a diary entry I made in high school," she explained. "I had a boyfriend named Anthony that I was frequently unhappy with. I made a list called Things I Hate About Anthony. When Kirsten [Smith] and I decided to write this, I went through all of my high school diaries to bone up on the angsty memories, and when I told her about that list, she was like, 'That's our title.'"
It turns out her ex-boyfriend likes the movie. "Anthony is very proud of that fact," McCullah said. "We're still friends today. And every now and then I'll get a random phone call in the middle of night: 'My nephew doesn't believe that this title is about me. Tell him.' On the phone, I'm like, 'Yes, I hated Anthony in high school.'"
Can we for two seconds ignore the fact that you're severely unhinged and discuss my need for a night of teenage normalcy?
