The sequel went through many titles. It was originally called "The Mask Of Zorro 2" and then that title was changed to "Zorro Unmasked" which had been the original script title by Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio. After their script was not used the title went to "Zorro 2" then to "The Return Of Zorro" before Sony pictures finally settled on the title "Legend Of Zorro". See more »
The Pinkerton agents claim that since California has not obtained statehood, U.S. authorities don't have jurisdiction to get a search warrant. But California in early 1850 is a USA territory where federal agents have just as much jurisdiction as in states. Furthermore, "Pinkertons" were not employed by the federal government until 1861.

Why are you still wearing his necklace?
I'm under cover! Besides, these are pearls. You never gave me pearls.
I thought you didn't care about things like that.
I lied. Every woman loves pearls.
Well, now you have them, *princess*.

If you don't like Saturday morning cartoons, children's adventure movies, and silly fun, then don't bother seeing this film. Otherwise, you'll have a good time.
The filmmakers take major liberties with history, human behavior, and the laws of physics, but it really doesn't matter. They're not going for realism. They wanted to make a flamboyant PG-rated kids' movie and succeeded. The characters all behave pretty much the way they do in kids' movies, and the cast is obviously having far too much fun.
Adults expecting a grown-up swashbuckler will be disappointed, but the adventurous kid in me really enjoyed it.
