Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is a slacker by day, party animal by night... until he finds a serious career that’s seriously cool: crime-fighting action hero. As the Green Hornet, he teams up with gadget wiz and martial arts master Kato (Jay Chou) to take down LA's underworld. Even Britt’s assistant Lenore (Cameron Diaz) doesn't suspect this mismatched pair is the masked duo busting the city's toughest thugs led by Chudnofsky (Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz, 2010, Supporting Actor, Inglourious Basterds). With style, swagger and an arsenal of awesome gear, the Green Hornet and Kato are doing justice their way, making every mission a mix of over-the-top action and outrageous comedy.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: It's sporadically entertaining, but The Green Hornet never approaches the surreal heights suggested by a Michel Gondry/Seth Rogen collaboration.

Common Sense Says
Superhero "bromance" is funny but overly childish.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this superhero flick is really more of a "bromantic" comedy, with lots of childish language and violence. Fairly frequent strong language includes "s--t" and "ass" and their many variations, plus "p---y," "d--k," and one use of "f--k." Sexuality and alcohol are concentrated in the first third of the movie, including a fair bit of partying and one scene in which Britt (Seth Rogen) wakes up in bed with a bra-clad woman. There are no big life lessons to learn or strongly positive role models, as the two main characters aren't morally righteous superheroes we're used to in similar films. Instead, they're basically independently financed boys with toys who do good more for kicks than out of a real sense of duty. Note: The 3-D version of the movie has heightened martial arts/action sequences.
