Trivia

Jay Chou got the role of Kato after a video conference with Seth Rogen was set up. He was invited to do a screentest, the filmmakers did not know he was a famous singer, up until the last moments. See more »

Goofs

When Kato and Britt are being chased by the police, the police fires a gun into the window of the car. Britt pushes the bullet out of the window and a sound is played of the bullet bouncing on the ground .

This is wrong because they are in a chase for speeding, at that speed you would not hear the first bounce let alone the second or third.

The sound does not match up with what is happening around them. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jack Reid: [on the phone] Tell the Mayor, I'm insulted. I would never jeopardize the journalistic integrity of this newspaper for some rent-a-mayor's political agenda.
Jack Reid: [to his son] So Britt, here we are again. Sent home after another schoolyard fight. I know you miss your mother. So do I. But I have to take care of 750 employees, and you have to take care of yourself. Still that seems to be asking too much.
Young Britt: But I was trying to stop some bullies...

Amazing
28 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'm going to get right to the point,this movie was hilarious, entertaining full of some fantastic action. Seth Rogen and Jay Chou...amazing.

One of the main complaints I hear is that some people couldn't understand Jay Chou, and I had no problem what-so-ever understanding him, unless he was speaking in Mandarin, which he randomly does, but I was okay with that because within the context of the film it was understandable.

Essentially, anyone that says this movie is not one of the most hilariously entertaining movies ever made is overly critical and bitter about life. Well, apparently fun isn't for everyone.

Anyway, I watched this movie in theaters, rented it, and will probably buy it, because it's friggin' GOLD.
