This explanation is courtesy of Steves Digicams:

Right up front we need to mention that there are TWO different EX-Z4 cameras being sold. The EX-Z4 outside of N. America and the EX-Z4U which is what we have reviewed and is sold in the U.S. They are identical except that the Z4U does NOT have a movie mode.

I have no idea why the US version is being sold without the movie feature.

Anyway, here's a link to Steve's review:

I have heard that the movie feature is not standard on the North American model because of a lawsuit pertaining to copyright infringement. It has to do with this feature though I do not know exactly how, at least, that is what I have heard.

Also, does anyone know if upgrading the firmware on the North American model would work to enable movie mode? The NA model says EX-Z4 as if it is the exact same as the Z4U just with different firmware...
