When you really laugh at some of the genuinely funny jokes, you realise this you're watching something a step above the sort of popcorn blockbuster usually on offer. Make no mistake - this is just another sci-fi comedy with blazing effects, but the solid comedy script make it all the more enjoyable and you don't leave thinking you've just wasted ten dollars to see a showcase of special effects.

J (Will Smith) has gone through a succession of partners and is starting to question an existence that nobody knows about. Then, when another despotic alien (who takes the form of lingerie model Lara Flynn Boyle) arrives on Earth to take possession of another trinket of galactic power, the MIB agency only has one choice; get K (Tommy Lee Jones) back, as he's the only one who knows anything about it.

After finally convincing him of his destiny, J & K follow the trail K left for himself years before with evil one step behind. The whole thing is good fun, well put together, well thought out and while it is an example of the brainless fairy floss we all flay Hollywood for, it's one of the best examples of it.
