About this movie

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son and heir to Los Angeles' largest newspaper fortune, is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain a direction-less existence. When his father James Reid (Tom Wilkinson) dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Jay Chou). They realize that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of James Reid's shadow. Kato builds the ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every weapon imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they will pose as villains. With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal underworld he controls.(c) 2011 Motion Picture © 2011 Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc.

I don't really like Seth Rogan but loved this movie. I don't know why people give such bad reviews. Definitly watch this movie it is worth every second. But I will admit it wasn't really a comedy but there were a couple funny parts nothing hilarious though.

Painfully predictable, old, worn--out trope: two guys start something, have a falling out because one is a jerk, and bond later under adversity. Still, it was a somewhat fun homage, though I think a serious take on the story would have been better. It's one of those films that is ok if you don't take it too seriously; still, I wish the people writing these things wouldn't depend on tired, re-used plots.

What a joke! The show was great, but Seth Rogen just had to ruin the name. He needs to stop making movies. He's the worst actor I've seen besides Will Ferrell.
