After breaking out of a moon-based maximum security prison, Boris the Animal decides to go back in time and eliminate the person who arrested him - Agent K. When he does so, Agent J realizes that the time line has been changed and he too travels back to July 15, 1969, the day before Agent K is killed. After overcoming some disbelief, J manages to convince K and others of just who he is and why he's there. With the help of a being who can see all time lines, they track Boris down. J also learns a secret, something K had never told him. Written by

Did You Know?
This is the first Men in Black film in which Will Smith
does not have a song on the movie's soundtrack. Will had suggested that he and his son Jaden Smith
should perform the main song for the end credits, but this idea was rejected by director Barry Sonnenfeld
, who did not want Jaden involved in the film. Upset at this decision, Will decided not to record the main title track at all, even on his own. This created an opportunity for Pitbull
, who ended up releasing 'Back in Time' as the main song for the movie. See more
When K pulls J into headquarters for questioning, the green alien in the background hands the phone to the agent questioning him, twice. See more

Well, well, Boris the Animal has a visitor. I guess one every 40 years is okay.
The opening title appears in a pan from the Moon to the Earth (something usually done at the end of the MiB films). See more
