Just like in The Taming of the Shrew, Kat (Katherina in the play) and scheming Patrick (Petruchio of Verona) eventually end up together. But Shakespeare's play has a much darker twist. After bad-boy Petruchio woos Katherina with psychological tricks, they marry in a disastrous wedding and he takes Katherina home against her will. But after some manipulation and what could only be described as psychological abuse on the part of Petruchio, the play ends with Katherina giving a speech about how wives should obey their husbands. We're glad the film switched things up.
