Men in Black II

Corrected entry: The worm in the subway is a very, VERY big worm: We see, while Agent J is riding on it, that it is roughly the size of a subway car, and at the end, it is sitting in the tunnel waiting to eat the alien. So, questions: If the worm's this big, how do the subway cars manage to pass it time and time again without 1. running into it and/or 2. People seeing it and having to be neurolized?

Correction: J tells the worm that he is restricted to a certain section of the subway tunnels. We can only assume that this section is no longer used so it is safe for him to be there.

Corrected entry: In the scene where agent J is riding the large worm through the subway and then is thrown into the last carriage. He then tells everyone to move to the front, then there is a shot of the back of the train. Look closely at the two people sitting down, they start running before the worm bites the train. (00:09:05)

Correction: Actually the woman is looking out the back window and sees Jeff coming, but the guy is still sitting until Jeff bites the train.


Corrected entry: When K has just been deneuralyzed at Jeebs place and gets ejected and slides across the floor, the steam coming from his ears is coming from underneath him, not from his ears. (00:39:22)

Correction: I think that it was supposed to be that his hair was smoking. If his ears were smoking it would mean his brain was fried.


Correction: This is mentioned by one of the characters, so it's an intentional error and not a movie mistake.

Corrected entry: In MIB, Zed says there are about 1500 aliens on Earth at any given time. In MIB 2, J says just about everyone working in a Post Office is an alien. Surely there are more than 1500 people working in all the post offices in the world.

Correction: It has been 5 years since the first movie - surely there could have been some kind of mass exodus from another planet during that time which meant that the number of aliens on Earth could have risen sharply. There are any number of things that could have happened which would have caused a boom in Earth's alien population.

Corrected entry: If K neuralized himself to forget where he hid the light on earth, and J neuralized K to forget all about the MIB. Why did the deneuralization bring back all information except info about where K hid the light? Wouldn't deneuralization bring back all of K's memories that were neuralizied?

Correction: The information about the light would have been neuralized out of him twice. He would need to be deneuralized twice, which they didn't want to do, or it was impossible to recover.

Corrected entry: When agent J summons his car for the first time, it pulls out of the parking stall and stops in front of him. As the car stops you can see the hand of the person driving it on top of the steering wheel. The car stops and the hand slides across the steering wheel to the right and disappears from view. He can't be the automatic driver, as his hand would stay on the wheel.

Correction: It has to be because if you look closely at the man in this scene, and the automatic driver in the rest of the movie, it is the same guy. In this scene, he even has the black suit and the sunglasses.

T Poston

Corrected entry: You can NOT tell me that with the sorting machine, and a hole THAT big, that Kevin couldn't look in at any time and see the alien in there? Not once in five years? Give me a break.

Correction: One contributor wrote: I am a postal worker and we never, EVER open the machinery. Only mechanics are authorized to do this, and if the machine was working fine, why would Kevin look in there in the first place?

Corrected entry: Agent K tells Laura that when it rains it is because she is sad. When she gets in the little space ship and flies away to the shining star, you can see her become sad and it starts to rain. When the shot changes back to Agents K and J there is no sign of rain falling. Rain doesn't stop and evaporate that fast.

Correction: At the end of the movie when Laura becomes sad, it only rains inside the spaceship she is in. That is why Agents Jay and Kay do not get wet. You can clearly see this when a picture of the spaceship is shown against the sky.

Corrected entry: In the first Men in Black movie, K tells Jeebs to leave Earth or he would basically kill him, but Jeebs is still on Earth and he isn't too scared to see K again.

Correction: Jeebs is visibly terrified when he first sees K. He only stops being afraid after he realizes that K doesn't remember his "promise" or his history.

Corrected entry: When the MIB car pulls up to Agent J and K in the public and the driver gets sucked into the steering wheel, you can clearly see in the background the people walking by speed up when the driver goes into the steering wheel. The special effects used were obviously speeded up, someone forgot about the extras in the scene and they sped up as well!

Correction: This only happens in the trailer - it's been fixed for the proper film.

Corrected entry: In the first film, the noisy cricket is an extremely powerful gun that launched J back about ten feet whenever he used it. Yet when K uses it, he stays perfectly still.

Correction: The reason that the noisy cricket blasted J back in the first movie but not K in the second movie is because that gun can be "dialed up" in power. According to the website for the first movie, rookie agents were often given noisy crickets dialed up to full blast by their superiors to teach them a lesson in perception.

Corrected entry: This whole thing with the light is said to have happened in 1978. Although the film was set in 2002, they keep on referring to the events that happened 25 years ago. Twenty-five years before 2002 is 1977.

Correction: The "25 years" is a time approximation, just like one would say "a month ago" instead of "27 days ago".

Corrected entry: When K and J are in Times Square after being flushed, they are covered with droplets of clear water. However the water on the walls of the cylinders as well as what they were in was blue. (00:35:35)


Correction: There's no mistake, they just appear clear, but it's all the same blue liquid. In fact, in one shot you see Jay spit out the blue liquid and even as the blue liquid is seen, some of the drops on his lips and chin appear clear.


Given the droplets were the same size on the walls of the pod as they were on J and K, they would not appear to be blue on one surface and clear on another. If the drops were larger in the pod vs on them, then I'd agree that the color could possibly be blue vs. Clear - but they weren't so they should be blue regardless of being on a person vs. Pod wall.


Correction: There's a lot more to just droplet size that affects what color you see. But the point being, he is seen spitting out blue liquid and that same liquid appears clear (as opposed to seeing him spit out blue liquid, have shot change, then another shot back to J where the liquid is now clear).


Corrected entry: When J shoots the door of MIB so him, K and the worms can get in, they are all sucked in through the hole he blew. The only way this would happen is if the pressure inside the building is less than outside the building and, judging from the powerful suction that lifts them off their feet, there would have been a vacuum inside the building, which means that everyone inside would have suffocated.

Correction: Not necessarily. Large stadiums have a high internal air pressure to keep the ceiling up. When you exit, the difference in air pressure can knock you down if you aren't prepared for it, yet you don't really feel the difference while you're inside. So the pressure inside MiB headquarters could be significantly lower than the pressure outside (likely to accommodate beings from low-pressure environments) without actually being uninhabitable to humans.

Corrected entry: The guy in the video store who asked agents J and K if they had, "Seen any aliens lately?" Is the same guy who played the morgue attendant who got slimed by the bug in the first movie. He's called David Cross.

Correction: Since in the first movie we never learn his name, it's never made clear that he was killed, and he has an obvious obsession about aliens and the Men in Black, we can assume that he is in fact the same character.

Men in Black II mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When MIB agents exit the lift to get into the main hall of the MIB Office, the lift opens halfway up the wall and they need to go down a little platform. But when K and J return during the lockdown and face the trashcan with guns, the lift opens at floor level, so it can be conveniently peppered with bullets. (01:02:05)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The building is in lockdown so it is no surprise that the lift is changed to a less flamboyant version. Even in the first scene, there are some doors there.

Agent Jay: Could I have your attention, please? [Neuralyzes the crowd.] Thank you for participating in our drill. Had this been an actual emergency, y'all would have been *eaten*. 'Cause you don't listen! You're ignorant! How's a man gonna come crashin' through the back of a subway win - that's the problem with all y'all New Yorkers!"Oh no, we've seen it all!" "Oh no, a 600 foot worm, save us Mr. Black man!" I ask you nicely to move forward to the next car, y'all just sit there like... [Neuralyzes the crowd again.] The City of New York would like to thank you for participating in our drill. Hopefully you enjoyed our smaller, more energy-efficient subway cars. Watch your step, you all have a nice evening.

More trivia for Men in Black II

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.
