Men in Black II by Barry Sonnenfeld, 2002 (PG-13)

with Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, Lara Flynn Boyle, Rip Torn, Patrick Warburton, Rosario Dawson (Love In The Time of Money, Unstoppable), Tony Shalhoub, Johnny Knoxville

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprise their roles as Jay and Kay, two highly secretive, highly funded and highly unofficial government agents dealing with all things evil and alien -- including "outing" aliens living among us.

Same old story as Men In Black, guys saving the world. Which reminds me of Independance Day, Will Smith was the great savior for a while. This time, the girl to protect is so cute (Rosario Dawson) that even the sexiest woman they could find (Lara Flynn Boyle who since then pushed a lot for surgery) would not beat it. Anyway, interesting, funny again, except perhaps the exuberant dog. I loved the realization that a post office is the perfect place for aliens. Also, the reenactment program of the arrival of the light on earth is magical, very seventies. Finally, the subway scene, with people so used to emergency that no one reacts when Will Smith ask them to leave the wagon is very typical. The other day, someone had a heart attack on the other side of the wagon, so a guy started screaming and calling for a doctor. It took us at least 30 seconds to realize the guys was not just crazy and there was an emergency.
Next step this week was of course to watch Men In Black III!
