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.

Other mistake: When Will Smith checks into the hotel and his credit cards are invalid, we see that the time is 5:38 and it is daylight outside. The only problem with this is that it is supposed to be around December given all the Christmas decorations. It would be dark then in the Baltimore, not soaked with daylight.
