Overview

In the 1950s a super-secret government agency was formed to monitor and police the activities of extraterrestrial aliens on the planet Earth. Some 40 years later a founding father of the agency, Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones), finds himself with a new smart-mouthed partner fresh from the NYPD who is soon dubbed Agent Jay (Will Smith). Their first mission is to save the Earth from destruction by a giant insectlike alien (Vincent D'Onfrio) that, incidentally, drives an exterminator's truck. Armed with their matching Ray-Bans, skinny ties, and space-age weapons that Jay barely understands--he calls the Neuralyzer the "flashy thing"--the new duo begin another average day of fighting intergalactic terrorists. An amazingly hip and terribly clever movie that riffs on everything from E.T.--THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL to CASABLANCA, this Barry Sonnenfeld film is based on the equally savvy comic book by Lowell Cunningham.

More Details

Synopsis:
A hilariously stoic top-secret federal agent (Tommy Lee Jones) and his wisecracking partner (Will Smith) don their matching Ray-Bans and skinny black ties and proceed to use all their considerable weaponry and wit to save the world from an undocumented and extremely unfriendly mantislike alien. MEN IN BLACK is a successful, tongue-in-cheek spoof of summer blockbuster alien invasion flicks, based on the comic book by Lowell Cunningham.

Notes:
Filmed in New York City and in studio (Culver City, CA). Estimated budget: $90 million. The film grossed more than $250 million at the domestic box office and nearly $600 million worldwide.

Reviews:
"...The out-there premise is irresistible.... Effects master Rick Baker whips up a swell array of oddball creatures great, small and just plain strange..." -- 4 out of 4 stars - 07/01/1997 USA Today, p.1D


"...Dryly clever....Extraordinarily ambitious, with all-star design and special-effects talent and a genuinely artful visual style..." - 07/01/1997 New York Times, p.C9


"...Wised-up and offhandedly funny....Barry Sonnenfeld is an excellent director for this point of view, and MEN IN BLACK is a blend of the strengths of his previous films..." - 07/01/1997 Los Angeles Times, p.F1


"...The movie makes good use of a lot of New York landmarks....[The film] deflates one sci-fi pomposity after another..." - 07/01/1997 Chicago Sun-Times, p.25


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he leads' buddy-buddy act works a charm, Smith's mock-macho maximalism and Jones' dour minimalism deliciously contrasted." - 06/01/2012 Total Film
