If ou are looking for a good time at the movie theater along with laughter, witty sayings and no pulling of punches… The Green Hornet is for  you.

Britt Reid( Rogen) turns over a new leaf after his father’s death.  He along with the world’s greatest coffee maker/ mechanic, Kato (Jay Chou),  create alter-egos who fight crime by being the bad guy.  Who is the head bad guy?  Christoph Waltz, who plays Chudnofsky. I see longevity in his career as the bad guy.  He wasn’t the only bad guy.  Reid is not the brightest so it takes him a while to figure out that the DA Scanlon was also a villan and actually caused his father’s death.  For some odd reason they casted Cameron Diaz as the hot female, that helps our heroes and causes friction.  That is a whole different post as to what Sunshine and I think about that (here’s a hint: its not good).

Elizabeth’s Thoughts:

The movie isn’t great but it is worth seeing in theaters.  Sunshine and I unfortunately waisted our money 3-D ( it was the only option).  So if you think it will be better it will not.  I give this film 3/5 black beauties.

Sunshine’s Thoughts:

The only true waste in this movie came at the box office when we had to pay 3D prices for a 2D movie.  Unfortunately our favorite theater only offered the 3D (or RealD) option and it was not worth it.  The movie itself though was fun from about 5 minutes in the end.  The first 5 minutes was kind of draggy with some back story attempting to explain the strained relationship between Britt and his dad. However, once Kato hits the scene its non-stop fun.  Jay Chou has a good career ahead of him if he keeps performing like this.  Cameron Diaz on the other hand needs to consider retirement, she was a huge waste of space in this movie.  Overall, a very good time indeed, 3.5/5 black beauties.
