Enemy of the State

Trivia: The cat that Gene Hackman has is the same cat that was in Men in Black, and similarly, the cat is put into a bag in this film just like in MIB.

Trivia: During the brief occasional shots of the satellite you can hear Morse code. The code translates as CQ, which is amateur radio speak for 'is anybody there?' - hardly spy stuff.

Trivia: Seth Green, who plays one of the main surveillance guys in the van, is not listed in the opening or closing credits.

Trivia: Just a quick note - obvious to many, but a lot of people I know missed him. Note the techie who gets hit by a car after being chased for a while - he's Jason Lee, of Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma fame. I know, I know, it's obvious, but a few people I know didn't notice until I mentioned it.

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, after the shootout, there's a shot with the camera zooming in on a newspaper at Will Smith's front door. If you pause it right once the headline fills the top of the screen, you'll notice all the paragraphs are just repeated, word for word. Additionally the word "received" is misspelled.

Question: Is it true that there are acres of computers under the DoD? And that they scan for key words? Can anyone confirm that?

Jason Riley

Chosen answer: If there are, it is kept secret. But there is ECHELON http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECHELON which is able to listen in on most forms of electronic communication.
