Men in Black

Revealing mistake: When Will Smith throws a rock at the escaping Edgar alien, if you watch the rock after it hits the alien, it disappears after hitting the ground.

Audio problem: When Will Smith is looking at the two space ships at the MIB headquarters, if you look in the background Zed and K are there typing on the computer. But if you look closer you can tell that they're not even touching the keyboard and the sounds are just added into the movie.

Continuity mistake: Just before the diner scene, where the two aliens are discussing the galaxy, we see the outside of the Russian restaurant. The neon sign says "haroshaya" meaning "good" all the way across the window, in the next shot inside the restaurant, the "ha", which looks like the English letters "xo", is gone and the sign is centered.

Continuity mistake: When the Bug's spaceship floats over Shea Stadium and the NY Mets outfielder sees it and gets conked on the head by the fly ball, he is wearing number 23. In a later scene, when J picks up the tabloid newspapers, the photo of the ballplayer has number 20.

Continuity mistake: When the jeweller leaves his shop, the shop window clearly shows the reflection of the parked exterminator's van. Then you see the van being driven up the cross-street as the jeweller leaves in the taxi. Then Edgar/bug parks the van, goes to the shop, and you can see the same reflection in the jewellery shop window.

Visible crew/equipment: When Tommy Lee Jones shakes the dog asking him about the galaxy, right before they exit the car, you can see the cameraman's reflection in the shiny black door frame.

Continuity mistake: When Will Smith and the other recruits are taking their written tests, the white table first appears to be situated between the second and third men from the left. When Smith goes to the table to pull it across the room, it is much further to the right of the scene.

Continuity mistake: When the truck gets smashed at the start, the tree beside the truck is well alight, but when the man comes out of the house, it is only a little alight.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: At the diner, after the Edgar/Bug leaves the restaurant, you can see him push one guy down outside, and pass another guy wearing a tan overcoat. When the camera cuts to outside, the guy with the tan overcoat has disappeared.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When J is changing in to his suit, he reaches in to the locker with his right hand and pulls out a hanger with a pair of trousers and a jacket on it. His forearm is bare and he isn't wearing a watch. Seconds later when he takes the shoes out of the locker with his left hand, his forearm is now covered by the long sleeve of a white shirt and he has a silver watch on. A few seconds later when he lays the jacket over the bench, both his forearms are bare and again he isn't wearing a watch.

Revealing mistake: When the alien takes off Edgar's skin, when he throws it to the top of the hole in the ground then drags it back, you can see its rubber skin. I read the correction too. And no. Human skin doesn't look like rubber glove material.

Continuity mistake: When the UFO crashes against the ground, K's hair moves wildly in the front shot, but remains still in the angle shot from behind.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Will Smith is holding the squid, watch the reflection on the alien's black eyes. Although Will Smith is standing alone, the reflection on the eyes shows two people, or - depending on the shot - one with a big hat.

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where Agent J is standing on a car and shoots the "Noisy Cricket" at the fleeing Edgar. The camera shot is from inside the car and just before Agent J crashes through the windshield, you see a precut area in the glass.

Continuity mistake: After Will Smith holds the squid, the amount of slime on his jacket differs between the right and left shots.

Sacha

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in the beginning where Will Smith chases the alien who jumps off the bridge onto the street. Will Smith jumps from the bridge onto a tour bus, then jumps on the back of a newspaper delivery van. In the passenger side of the van is a cameraman with his back towards the windshield in order to film down the side of the van as Will Smith jumps off the van.

Other mistake: When K is searching for his wife on the computer, the zoom in highlight boxes don't match the videos.

Continuity mistake: When the countdown timer for the destruction of Earth appears on the viewscreen, you see it count down to 59:56. There is a cut to three cast members including Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones for a brief dialogue scene. When it cuts to Will Smith walking away you can see the clock still counting down on the screen in the background. Now it is showing the time of 59:54. The aforementioned dialogue section took noticeably longer than two seconds.

Continuity mistake: The Bug pulls his new "Edgar Suit" skin back tight over his face and the wife faints. In the wide shot, he is still holding it back, but the head is completely normal.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: After Mikey is gone, the guard comes down the embankment. As he does, the background "sky" now seems to have a long multi-story building outlined in it.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: After D is knocked down, K draws his weapon. In one shot of Mikey running, K has his gun aimed directly at Mikey. A moment later, K is shown aiming at Mikey again.

Movie Nut

Visible crew/equipment: As K goes to tell Mikey to be quiet, the corner of the sound stage can be seen over his left shoulder.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: As K walks out from the car, saying "INS, Division Six", look at the road they just drove up. It runs a short distance, and ends at a hill of dirt. Presumably, the pile and the end of the road are at the sound stage wall.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When Jay touches the ball that goes flying around, the ball goes past the Immigration Stats board where the time reads 33:01:42 pm. Then when we see the alien surveillance map, the time is 30:21:40 CTN. Then the second shot of the map, the time reads 32:01:42 CTN.

Bishop73

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, when the van is approaching the road block, you can see the 4 sets of headlights. However, when we see the road block from behind, we see one cop car parked at an angle, in front of another cop car's headlight, which would obstruct the view of the light which we saw before.

Bishop73

Factual error: When showing Orion's Belt on the screen the stars Alnitak and Mintaka are the wrong way round.

Continuity mistake: When K shows the neutralizer at the border patrol guys, he holds it parallel to his face, but in the close-up it's next to where his shoulder meets the arm.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When Arquillian's stretcher is about to pass through the doors, the cat is raised and nervous, when the angle changes he is resting relaxed.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: When J is searching for the cab, K arrives to pick him up and says "He won't be leaving in a cab". Right then a bus suddenly appears on the right lane, only to disappear in the next angle.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: At the morgue, K walks towards the Arquillian's head while Weaver and J walk to see the Jeweler. When the angle changes, a frame later, K is meters away, close to the racks.

Quotes

K: All right, kid. Here's the deal. At any given time, there are around 1500 aliens on the planet. Most of them right here, in Manhattan. And, most of them are decent enough, just trying to make a living.
J: Cab drivers.
K: No, not as many as you think.

Trivia

In many European countries, as in Spain and France, since Dennis Rodman's weirdness isn't that well known, the celebrity mentioned in the last line of the movie as being an alien was changed to Michael Jackson.
