Tommy Lee Jones only accepted the role of K after Steven Spielberg promised the script would improve. He had been disappointed with the first draft, which he felt did not capture the tone of the comic. See more »
When Mets player Bernard Gilkey is hit on the head with the ball, he is wearing jersey #23 (Gilkey's number), and the jersey has the standard "Mets" script across the chest. Later, when he is seen on the cover of the tabloid, he is wearing #20, with the 1993-94 script that has a "swoosh-tail" attached to the "s" underlining the word "Mets." 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.
