Overall: C

Agent Jay (Will Smith) has to pull former Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) out of the post office and back into their secret government agency when a space intruder posing as a lingerie model infiltrates MiB headquarters and plans to destroy the Earth.  Moving in the same orbit as the original film, Men in Black 2 is splattered with alien innards, sexual content and violent action scenes.

Violence: D+

Spaceship flies through universe destroying planets before crashing into Earth. Man attacks woman and holds knife to her throat. Alien eats man and then vomits (heard not seen). Large alien attacks characters and subway train. Man hits head on ceiling beam. Men held in chokehold; one has snake-like tentacles pushed in ears and nose and other is split in half. Man punched in face. Aliens attack office. Man shaken and thrown about in machine. Character’s head is shot off. Numerous scenes show fighting between aliens and humans including weapons, explosions and hand-to-hand combat. Woman kicked repeatedly in face. Man hit in face with platter. Woman is shot and killed. Man appears to threaten woman with shovel. Aliens are attacked and sliced in half. Gunfire exchanged between characters in building and during chase scene. Man bites character.

Sexual Content: C-

Human and alien characters make sexual comments and jokes throughout the film. Woman wears bikini top. Lingerie advertisement is shown.  Female character wears lingerie in public and later exposes it to man. Man licks woman’s neck during rape attack. Characters discuss man’s divorce. Woman makes comment about her breasts. Character is depicted with testicles hanging from chin. Aliens visit adult movie store. Man kicked in crotch. Woman licks man’s ear. Man falls on woman during turbulent flight. Man briefly describes his sexual encounters. Man seen sitting on another man’s lap. Vague reference to bestiality is made.

Alcohol / Drug Use: B

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Men in Black 2.

This film is preceded by Men in Black (MIB)) and followed by Men in Black 3 (MIB III).

Not all aliens are eager to live on the planet Earth. In E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, a little space creature is mistakenly left and tries to go home. Kevin Spacey plays Prot, a visitor from another world who is planning to return to his planet K-PAX with one lucky human.
