The paint on Kat and Patrick's jumpsuits change in different shots.
In the scene where Bianca and Cameron are under a bridge and he's asking her does she like sailing, in one shot she has roots in her hair about an inch thick and in the next she has none, her hair has been dyed.

During Patrick and Kat's first conversation, they pass a bench at the side of the field. The scene cuts to Cameron and Michael in the bleachers and Patrick's position has changed. There are also many more people near the bench than in the previous shot.

Right after Joey says, "OK, you're cool by association," when he's done drawing on Michael's face, an arm and short sleeve shirt are visible above Michael's head on the left side as if someone is standing by the table. In the next shot when it shows the whole table, no one is near their table.

When Kat and Patrick are playing paintball right before they kiss you can see that they are barely covered in paint. When they do kiss and are on the ground, they are totally covered with it.

When Cameron first approaches Patrick about dating Kat, he responds by drilling a hole in Cameron's French book. But when Michael holds up the book in the next scene, the hole is far larger than the drill bit Patrick was using would have made.

When Kat want to back out of the parking spot Joey parks his car behind her. The door of his car is completely visible. But when Kat purposely backs up into Joey's car she hits it with the right rear corner in the middle of the door, as seen in the close-up. That is only possible if Joey's car would have been parked a further four to five feet to the front.

When Joey parks his car in front of Kat's car outside the music shop, she is in line with his front wing, but when she reverses into it she hits the door.
The clasp on Bianca's necklace while in Kat's room.
When Kat rams Joey's car her hands continually change position on the steering wheel between shots without Kat actually moving.
After Joey draws on Michael's face and Michael walks back to Cameron, the drawing on his face is darker than it was to begin with.

Crew or equipment visible 

After Michael is almost hit by Kat's car, the reflection of set lights can clearly be seen on Michael's helmet.

Factual errors 

The poem that Kat reads in Mr. Morgan's English class towards the end of the film is titled "10 Things I Hate About You". It uses the word "hate" exactly 11 times and actually lists 13 disliked qualities.
The credits misspell the Fremont Troll as "Freemont".
The tagline for the film is 'How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways'. However, this isn't from Taming of the Shrew, or even Shakespeare at all - its Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Miscellaneous 

In the end credit, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's name is spelled with the hyphen between the Joseph and Gordon.

Revealing mistakes 

When Patrick and Kat are in the pedal boat, though they are pedaling, they do not move.
Just before Joey pulls up behind Kat's car, his red convertible can be seen reflected in the windows across the street as it sits waiting to enter the scene.
When Michael is nearly hit by the car and goes down the hill, you can clearly see the ramp where the driver is supposed to go.
The pedals in a Pedalo move in unison; when Kat and Patrick are pedaling, their legs are moving at different times.
In the scene in which the teacher gets an arrow fired into his backside by Bianca, a girl runs off to go find help, however before she runs off camera she stops and looks back, obviously unaware she is still on camera.
