Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
Paranoia was never this much fun. Everyone from weathermen to unwashed dirt farmers is a potentially murderous space alien in this science-fiction comedy that mixes laughs with fast-paced action and spectacular special effects. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith shine as a straight-as-an-arrow special agent and a fast-talking NYPD cop who form an unlikely partnership to rid the earth of extraterrestrial intruders. As imaginative and absurd as the comic-book series that inspired it, Men in Black is an entertaining send-up of self-important sci-fi flicks -- a blockbuster action film that delivers all the expected thrills while managing to revel in its own silliness. The limited-edition two-DVD set is a stellar package with "visual commentaries" from the director and stars, the Men in Black music video, storyboard and photo galleries, and several scenes with multiple angles.
All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
Because of its extensive ad campaign and huge box-office grosses, some viewers may be surprised at the comparatively small scale of this fun little science-fiction comedy. In fact, most of the reason the film works as well as it does is not the special-effects aspect, which is relatively modest, but the chemistry between its two leads. Tommy Lee Jones' wonderful deadpan delivery works as a perfect counterpoint to Will Smith's often frantic energy, and both actors are a joy to watch. The alien monsters are mostly of the cute and cuddly variety, making it more suitable for children than most violent alien epics of recent years, and it's so much fun that it's one of the rare films which actually raises hopes for a sequel.

I love how this movie is funny, but scary as in a Oh-My-God-That-Dude-Just-Shot-Another-Guy's-Head-Off way. I love movies like this one. I totally recommend MIIB (Men In Black Two) after you've seen this one! Even though it's rated PG-13, all ages (except for the youngsters) will love this epic movie!
