Critics Reviews

Rolling Stone
Sonnenfeld deftly orchestrates the intricate two-part harmony, and Smith and Jones -- a powerhouse comic pair -- make it all look easy.
Full review
by: Peter Travers
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Sonnenfeld moves things along with alacrity and panache, serving up the exotic visuals quietly, blending in the sprightly humour efficiently, and keeping the mix at a rolling boil.

Men in Black is Whack
MIB (Men In Black) is fun. Let's be honest, they lose a lot in trying to be "too cool" and "too funny" but honestly, it's a great watch with groovy special effects. The best thing about it is because there's enough of a love story, you can take...

just fun
Fun and lots of it. A great summer movie that does not take itself too seriously. Aliens, secret agents, and some very big guns. Everything a guy can ask for in a movie! (well not everything, but almost :)

very entertaining
Sci-fi comedy filled with visual effects and visual gags. Will Smith is hilarious as usual and Tommy Lee Jones is good in the supporting role. These two are a great "odd couple" - very entertaining.
