Did You Know?
When he was attached as the writer/director, Kevin Smith (jokingly) said he wanted to cast Ben Affleck as BOTH the Green Hornet and Kato, making use of split screen shots and yellow face. See more
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

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.
But I was trying to stop some bullies...
