Much of the initial script drafts were set underground, with locations ranging from Kansas to Washington, D.C. and Nevada. Barry Sonnenfeld decided to change the location to New York City, because the director felt New Yorkers would be tolerant of aliens who behaved oddly while disguised. He also felt much of the city's structures resembled flying saucers and rocket ships. See more »
J and K exit the morgue at night and go directly back to MIB headquarters. J goes to his computer and scans for his lost love in Cape Cod, which is in the same time zone as NY. When the image is located, it appears to be daylight when it should be in the evening. See more »
"Men in Black" is a fast-paced action-comedy that over-achieves the whole way. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith make an amazing comedy team as the title characters who protect the Earth from the scum of the universe. Everything is tongue-in-cheek and the whole film works in a really great way. A great film that benefits from its characters and amazing special effects. 4 out of 5 stars.
