Time passes, hope sinks and a theme emerges, unfortunately. Men in Black II shows that only two kinds of women exist on other planets: shining saints and snaky monsters.

It can't be said enough how much Smith's charisma and Jones' deadpan delivery almost save this movie and it's to their credit that this movie isn't as bad as it should be.

In the absence of the first film's rhythm, wit, and novelty, it's a typically lazy, diminishing-returns sequel.

"Men in Black II" never matched the first film's perfect blend of action, comedy, and sci-fi elements.

A fiercely and aggressively bad movie...

...falls prey to the syndrome that affects many sequels: the apparently irresistible desire to replicate the formula from the first film.

About the most uninspired rehash of a popular hit I've ever seen.

A virtually identical remake of the 1997 blockbuster which offers almost nothing new.

The down-home satire of how we cope with cultural difference has evaporated, replaced by jazzy effects that wear out their welcome by the halfway mark.

The movie's smart, funny and fairly forgettable.

Men in Black II could care less whether you believe in it or not, or frankly, whether you bought the ticket and spent your time on the concession line trying to buy Goobers.

The acting is good, the direction is good, the special effects are great, only the jokes are a little flat and far between and nothing very original is offered up here.

Sadly, the movie has no new ideas worth mentioning.

This film is so full of special effects that it seems as if there are only about seven minutes of actual story-telling from which to decipher a plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10

We watch and think, 'Yeah. So? What else can they do?' It's not that it's dull so much as that it's familiar.

Men in Black II doesn't replicate the blithely funny and hip attitude of the original.

Like a lot of the movie, the special effects are 'been there, done that.'

With MIB2, [Sonnenfeld] triumphs yet again in giving us a quick -- albeit silly -- cinematic fix.
Michael Dequina
January 12, 2004
A textbook example of a redundant, middle-of-the-road summer sequel tailored to please the most easily entertained of moviegoers.
