The movie's smart, funny and fairly forgettable.

With MIB2, [Sonnenfeld] triumphs yet again in giving us a quick -- albeit silly -- cinematic fix.

The chemistry between Smith and Jones is among the best of cinematic comedy duos, and the aliens are quirky and often hilarious.

Smith and Jones perform together as smoothly as if they never left the studio, and the script sparkles with very much the same fluorescence.

Strange, zany, generally amusing and very likeable without actually being all that hilarious or surprising.

Smith and Jones pick up right where they left off, managing to recapture that same chemistry that worked well in 1997.

There are plenty of crazy aliens, and a few jokes at the expense of the occasional celebrity. Too bad none of it was really all that funny or even memorable.

It isn't without a modicum of felicitous charms.

If you liked the first film, then you'll like the sequel, but it's neither as exciting nor as out-and-out funny as it should be.

Grab some popcorn, put your brain in neutral and enjoy.

The good (Tommy Lee Jones), the bad (Johnny Knoxville) and the ugly (CGI effects)

Is it as good as the original? Given that what you're in for is no longer the surprise it was when this concept emerged from the egg of originality, how can it be? But that doesn't mean you shouldn't expose yourself to the latest installment.

It's a fluffy treat that doesn't include anything substantial or wholesome, just sugar and MSG.

Más sarcástica, divertida y demencial que su predecesora, es un buen ejemplo de lo que es el cine de entretenimiento puro y sin complejos.

This is effective button-pushing sci-fi entertainment, but you won't need to be neurolized to forget it.

If comic camp and big-budget special effects leave you drooling, Men in Black II should offer welcome relief from the crushing summer heat.

If you enjoyed the first one, chances are you'll enjoy the second--after all, they're almost the same movie.

Es sólo ciencia ficción; ver seres de otros mundos comportarse como humanos, con las mismas pasiones y deseos, con los mismos errores y desazones. Sólo eso.

This second Men In Black will likely be forgotten in a flash of light.

I thought it had some really funny moments, but maybe because it's pretty much exactly the same as the first one, it seemed like it's all been done before.
