This mysterious fact is discovered by even more mysterious Men In Black who start nagging the family up to the point of threatening to kill them.

Goofs

In the car chase 20 years earlier, Stan is driving a 1980 Mercury Zephyr and then the story moves forwards 20 years. In the scene where Bob is at work, Harry tells him to use the computer instead of reading books. As he says; "it's the 90s". So that isn't a 20 year gap at all. See more »

Not a great movie, but a good one...
3 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

I thought Shadow Men was good, for a direct-to-video flick. Oh sure, the special effects weren't great and there were a few plot holes here and there, but otherwise, it was ok. There was a sort of creepiness about the whole thing. Afterall, would you really want to be chased by the MiB? (And I'm not talking about the light-hearted MiB of Jones and Smith).
