Nod your heads... Black suits coming! Nod your heads... Intermission! Nod your heads... Wake up! The movie's over, bozo! And in case you didn't have your shades on, you've just been neuralized and don't remember any of the movie. The Men In Black are back. At least one of them is, though he talks a li'l like Muhammad Ali every now and then.
Jay (Will Smith) finds that partners are not easy to get and that overgrown worms can get quite bugging. But when something that looks like what's left after Medusa's trip to Tirupati morphs into a lingerie model, Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) has to be brought back.
Knobby knees and neuralizer-resultant confusion fight for your attention as Kay gets ready to wear the last suit he'll ever wear... again. Serleena (Laura Flynn Boyle) is the bad dame. Dunno about the bad part, but I'll tell you how she became a dame. She starts off as a li'l, yucky thingummy,
which starts sprouting tentacles on seeing an ad of "Victoria's Secret"... Who wouldn't! Soon she looks like Laura Flynn Boyle. And she's all ready to go on the rampage with the help of the two-headed Scrad/Charlie (Johnny Knoxville) and some more of the scum the Men in Black managed to lockup in the period between MIB-1 and MIB-2.
So Jay, Kay, the worm guys and a dishy chick called Laura (Rosario Dawson) are up against some mean aliens. And the bone of contention is a light (as in "glowing", not "not-heavy") thingie, which can blow up the earth and all. And 'cos someone said "bone", Frank, the pug-faced
dog, wants in too. And now we are all set for some scum-butt-kicking.
The nemesis of all sequels is the comparison part. The first MIB was longer, yuckier and somehow had a longer retention span. You won't remember this movie for too long, except maybe for the scene where Frank sings "I will survive".
This movie is funny, has some hot action and manages to keep you from nodding off. Only, it's like a 12" pizza with everything on it but the cheese. Something's definitely missing. Mebbe it's the "prick-a**" gun (actually it's there in this one too, only this time Jay gives it to Kay), mebbe it's the roach or mebbe it's the lack of all that puke-like alien innards.
Whatever it is, it sure takes off some of the flavor. And in case you plan to watch this and haven't watched the first one yet, rent a CD of MIB ASAP and then head to the theaters for this one. 'Cos they are like Scrad and Charlie. Get the drift?
