Men in Black by Barry Sonnenfeld, 1997 (PG-13)

with Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, Vincent D'Onofrio, Linda Fiorentino, Rip Torn, David Cross, Tony Shalhoub

In director Barry Sonnenfeld's hip sci-fi romp, a streetwise New York City cop is enlisted to work with a seasoned government agent on a top-secret team that monitors space aliens living on planet Earth, unbeknownst to the general public.

I remember when I was much younger, bored in the beach family house, and going to the movies with my cousin to escape the family rituals. And going to see: Men In Black! That was fun. Watching it again was great, but strange in a way. The outfit of Will Smith, pajama style, really got old. The suit on the other hand is timeless. The toys aka weapons are still up to date, New York as well, same old Manhattan. It was great to watch it again now that I live in New York, that I can recognize the references. I also realized it was really a great idea to put celebrity on screen as aliens, and most of all, reusing all the alien theories into a secret organization closer to a immigration custom.
