Based off of the comic book. Unbeknownst to other people, there is a private agency code named MiB. This agency is some kind of extra terrestrial surveillance corporation.

He is searching for a super energy source called "The Galaxy". Now, Agents J and K must stop the bug before it can escape with the galaxy.Written by

In the tunnel when they're upside down, based on Kay's hand in relation to his seat (right hand holding tape and entering scene from right side places car upside down in shot), he places the Elvis Presley eight track tape into the player right side up, meaning the player is installed in the car upside down. The player also says "Eight track stereo" on front cassette door right side up to the shot, meaning upside down in the car. This is supposed to suggest that Kay regularly drives upside down in the tunnel and has the player oriented that way on purpose. See more »
When Will Smiths character becomes an agent he is given locker J and his new entry id is only the letter J, giving the impression that agents names become letters. Yet in the credits Will Smiths character is identified at Jay not J. Two other characters have their letter spelled out instead of a single letter. D is called Dee, and K is called Kay. See more »
The version that is seen on 7mate in Australia is completely uncut and PG. Some Blu-Rays rule the film PG. There is including something interesting that the GO! version when they still owned it to play on mainstream Australian television is rated M for "some violence" See more »
As my one line summary says, this is one of the best sci-fi comedies ever made, next to the classic Ghostbusters and the highly underrated Evolution. This movie has action, comedy, and some of the best special effects in the last ten years. Rick Baker, Hollywood's resident 'creature man', as I like to call him, has made such a wide variety of aliens. There's the first alien we see, Mikey; there's the Worm Guys; and the villanous Bug. But there are many others, such as Frank the Pug and the twins. The squid baby is pretty neat. Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith have an undeniable chemistry together, which repeats itself in the sequel. Linda Fiorentino is also good as the leading lady, and veteran actor Rip Torn is gruff as the head of MIB, Zed. Vincent D'Onofrio is also pretty good. My favorite line: "No, ma'am. We at the FBI do not have a sense of humor that we are aware of." All in all, two thumbs up, baby!
