Otherworldly villains are on the loose again, and it's up to Earth's interstellar police force to bring them to justice in this sequel to the sci-fi comedy blockbuster Men in Black. Agent Jay (Will Smith) has become a high-ranking member of the Men in Black, the secret government task force designed to deal with unruly visitors from other worlds, while his former cohort, Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), had his memory wiped clean and now lives a simple but contented life as a mailman.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The down-home satire of how we cope with cultural difference has evaporated, replaced by jazzy effects that wear out their welcome by the halfway mark."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"A mixed bag of a comedy that can't really be described as out of this world."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"It can't be said enough how much Smith's charisma and Jones' deadpan delivery almost save this movie and it's to their credit that this movie isn't as bad as it should be."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Crazy creatures, some scares, and loads of fun."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"About the most uninspired rehash of a popular hit I've ever seen."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"The movie's smart, funny and fairly forgettable."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"If the first Men in Black was money, the second is small change. But it still jingles in the pocket. It's fun lite."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"In the absence of the first film's rhythm, wit, and novelty, it's a typically lazy, diminishing-returns sequel."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A fiercely and aggressively bad movie..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A virtually identical remake of the 1997 blockbuster which offers almost nothing new."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"It isn't without a modicum of felicitous charms."
‑ Chuck Stephens, L.A. Weekly
"Men in Black 2 might be a retread of the first one, but I still say it's worth seeing. The stars are great in this."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
""Men in Black II" never matched the first film's perfect blend of action, comedy, and sci-fi elements."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"...falls prey to the syndrome that affects many sequels: the apparently irresistible desire to replicate the formula from the first film."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Men in Black II could care less whether you believe in it or not, or frankly, whether you bought the ticket and spent your time on the concession line trying to buy Goobers."
‑ Jordan Hiller,
