Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (13):

This sequel may not be quite as good, but it's still loads of fun and pretty funny, with many imaginative creatures. Men in Black was wonderfully original and achieved near perfection with a tone that was just off-center and the essence of cool, a satisfying story and spectacular special effects; it's hard to live up to that.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
