Summary: Amusing, light-hearted, but not near as fun as the original.
No new jokes here, really. Frank the dog is funny in places, but the rest of it was really a lot of rehash of the first MiB. Decent effects and sound and music, but all the gimmicks are pretty much the same ones in the first movie, which was pretty disappointing. Also the whole thing was rushed... under 90 minutes.

Summary: Yikes.. what happened?
A lot of reused poo-poo with mailed in performances by everyone except Will Smith - and his seemed forced. Watching Tommy Lee Jones collect his paycheck on the big screen is pretty damn painful as he is really much better than this. I'll rack it up to a bad script. There are a couple funny moments (Agent M, the little guys in Jones's airport locker), but they are short and rare.

Summary: Not as good as the origianl but still great!
A wonderful movie, Bringing back some of the old characters and putting them back to life to allow the story to go on was a great idea. wonderful visual effects and great new aliens makes this movie a must see. If you liked the first one you will love this one!

Summary: Ok sequel
This one had fun giving a lot of the characters that had brief roles in the first one some more screen time. Throw in Lara Flynn Boyle as an alien that wants to be a supermodel, and odd stuff like the entire postal service being run by aliens, and you get a decent comedy.
