    Delivers a quick buzz, lots of stuff to look at, and a totally nonnutritious joy that can only be attained with the aid of artificial flavorings and Yellow #5. In a nutshell, it's the perfect summer movie.
  2. 67
    It's a welcome and nicely goofy bit of sci-fi froth with the occasional hint of genuine comic smarts.
  3. 63
    So eager to please, it practically licks you in the face.
  4. On the positive side, the four Worm Guys haven't lost their squiggly charm, and Rip Torn is always welcome as MIB mastermind Zed. On the minus side, you get two Johnny Knoxvilles, one of them a tiny head that protrudes from the big one's shoulder.
  5. 50
    There's something wrong with this picture, and the problem is there on Smith's face -- Smith looks distressingly I-was-an-Oscar-nominee bored. That goes double for Jones.
  6. It's a stylish package with not much inside.

    If it isn't the worst sequel ever made, it's only because it has too much competition: Impersonal and frenetic, it's a landmark Hollywood disgrace.

Everything we loved about the first film is still present here which is great, and its great to have the main players back as well as some new additions. As far as sequels go its not up there as the best, and I feel the third was better than this one, but overall it will still appeal to the same audiences of the original Expand

    "Men in Black 2" entertains the audience with joy, but it's not worth it compared to its prequel.

    This is probably the worst sequel ever made - bar none. A zero is fair due to the moronic upvoters.
