Continuity mistake: When Agent Kay empties his guns shooting at the trashcan robot in the elevator, he throws down his guns and swings back to the roof of the elevator. When the robot moves into the elevator, the guns are nowhere to be seen. (01:03:00)


Continuity mistake: Right after Zed kicks Serleena in the face a few times, you see Serleena tripping him with the vines from her fingers and he lands on his side. The camera angle changes and he is now seen laying flat on his back. (00:44:40)



Continuity mistake: When Jay and Tee first start to talk to Jeff, Tee grabs the "weed." When Jeff gets mad and starts banging on the grate, the wide shot shows Tee in the same position, gripping Jeff's weed, however it was not digitally added in that shot, so he's gripping nothing. But in the next shot, he's shown gripping the weed again.


Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole movie when someone is driving they keep driving to different locations but if you look out the window it's just the same green background all the time. (02:27:09)

Continuity mistake: The entrance room (the large stone building off Battery Avenue) to the starport reverses between the two movies. In the first movie, the guard sits on the right hand wall as one faces the elevator, with a fan visible through a grille behind him, and a circular vent on the other wall. In MiB II, he is sitting against the left hand wall, but the fan and grille is still behind him, meaning it has changed walls. (00:17:15)

Continuity mistake: When Agent J drives to see the small, gold alien ship in the yellow tent, he steps out of his car and into a small amount of mud. His shoes already have mud around the soles and edges when he steps out. (00:24:30)

Continuity mistake: When they land on the roof of the launch site, Jay gets out of the passenger side, even though he and Kay switched spots after which Jay was driving/flying.

Suggested correction: While they did switch when flying, the scene goes from them stopping in the tunnel and watching Serleena being eating by Jeff to them landing on the roof. Given Kay and always insisting he drives, they simply switched seats in the tunnel before leaving.


Continuity mistake: At Jeebs' basement, when Scrad comes to talk to J, J's tie swaps back and forth between tight and loose. (00:42:25)

Question: I never understood the two people on the bikes, you know the people with all the stars. What are they suppose to represent?

Answer: They are extraterrestrials, the fact they are weird gives it away to K now he has been deneuralized. He started to notice them again as his mind is rebooting.


Answer: They don't represent anything. Barry Sonnenfeld says in the commentary that he simply likes to use that cycling couple as he thinks that it is a cool visual.

Answer: And apparently they are a couple who actually live in that area of New York. So they may be familiar to some who see them in the movie.
