Great sequel-better than the first!!

There were a few startling parts- like things jumping out, but it was not scary like the first one ( I thought) was. It was very funny, and even the violence was comical. One word description: HILLARIOUS!!

Hilarious Fun! I must say I enjoyed this more than the first one!

MEN IN BLACK 2 is here. And Men in Black are (what else?) back, and in black. This time they're fighting evil alien/human Seralina, who is looking for a mysterious STAR. She's nasty. She's evil. And the Men in Black have to stop her. To do so, Agent J (played to hilarious perfection by Will Smith) must bring his ex-partner K (brilliant Tommy Lee Jones) back to the business. Though no sex or nudity is shown, there is a certain level of sexual humor and innuendo, giving this the "provocative humor" rating that the first didn't have. Violence is comic for the most part, and all of the combatants are aliens. Lnaguage is frequent. MEN IN BLACK 2 is worth watching. Maybe a bit crass or vulgar for youngsters, but tweens and up will love it. Highly reccommended.

Not as Good as the First One

This movie is overfilled with scary aliens. (Much more scary than the first.) E.g: Giant Worms, Multi-headed and Multi-armed creatures and scary snakes. Violence is more intense than the first, including fist fights and bigger ray guns. A scary alien woman is... Well, a Victorian Model. The Language is surprisingly much better than the first, "p--z", "a-s", and "cr-p" are the only swear words mentioned. The aliens are much more scary. 12+

Common sense

This movie is awesome, but a little gross and not good for little kids.

Very good movie. But violence, and provocated humor is innapropriate

Another MIB movie! Must see.

Good follow up to the first movie. Nothing in here especially inappropriate for tweens and preteens. Not really for younger children due to the alien violence.

Great Sequel To Ok Movie Is Slightly More Innapropriate Then It's Predecessor

Decent Movie for 12+

This is a good short film sequel. Alien slapstickish. Good movie.
Adult Written bylizperle April 9, 2008

Really funny sequel -- love that dog

This is a perfectly fun diversion for you and your family if your kids are into gross jokes and don't scare too easily. No nutrient value and quite a lot of action/violence but it involves mutants and bugs mostly and isn't anywhere near nightmare material.

Entertaining for kids and adults - language a bit worse than summary indicates

Kids and I really enjoyed the movie - fun characters and jokes but the use of words like "ass" were a little too frequent for me. Not that kids don't know and hear the word but probably better suited for 6th graders than any younger. If it was on local station where they edited then it would be great for all ages.

Fun sequel is very graphic/intense.

My rating:PG-13 for strong violence.

I like it, but I was 9 when I watched this, I found some bits too scary.
