This short is a look at how director Barry Sonnenfeld directs comedy, in particular the MIB films. With interviews with the man himself, cast and writers we see how he lets the audience find the jokes without having to try too hard.
There is an element of this that is a bit of back slapping for Sonnenfeld, however it is still worth watching as no-one else is going to hold a discussion on the act of writing MIIB! The people with the most to say are Sonnenfeld himself and the writers. It is quite interesting to see how the film is written to have a comic feel rather than just jokes.
Some of it is interesting but much of it is stuff that didn't need to be said. For example spending a couple of minutes on the fact that Jones is funny in his stony look and responses wasn't needed - we know this.
Overall it is a bit of a slap on the back for Sonnenfled and his writers - and they deserve it, after all, everyone else gets their own featurette on the MIIB DVD so why not them! However it is really of limited interest and could have been presented in a much more interesting way.
