Ultimately, this film isn't quite as screamingly funny as its coming attractions trailer suggested, but it is an amiable enough piece of entertainment.

July 23, 2008
Combines the talents of Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and director Barry Sonnenfeld to hilarious, endearing effect.

A wild knuckleball of a movie that keeps dancing in and out of the strike zone.
Rob Gonsalves
March 11, 2008
Just a collection of sketches in which Jones and Smith run into farcical E.T.s.

The smartest, funniest, and best-looking sci-fi comedy since the movies learned to morph.

It's just the best yuk of the week.

Cool hot-weather fun -- this will be the one to beat right through the dog days of summer.

Will Smith, the only spark of life in Independence Day, now is allowed to shine in brighter, smarter material.

It's so much fun, in fact, that it's almost over before you realise that you've been watching a great idea for a movie in desperate search of a plot.

A fun movie.

September 4, 2003
The plot is paper-thin, characters are one-dimensional and even the protagonists' one-liners are forgettable.
Full Review| Original Score: 5/10

Fortunately, the cast's one-dimensional performances and deadpan delivery of funny dialogue actually enhance the humor.

As ragged as the humor is, there still are more hits than misses.

Though the story is pure cartoon, the movie is exceptionally smart and exceptionally well-paced.

This movie is a lot of fun, except that it has a little too much slime.

Good old alien fun

It's no big deal. It's more fun, anyway, to just kick back and watch the casual comic work of the MiB stars, particularly Jones.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Steven D. Greydanus
Decent Films Guide
July 1, 2002
Smarter, leaner, funnier, and more human than most entries in the genre, relying less on spectacle than on the chemistry of the two leads and the wit of the script for its appeal.

At times, it may succeed at manipulating you, but you won't like it.
