Men in Black II

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)

Revealing mistake: When Agent Jay is in the yellow tent with Serleena's tiny ship, the view back at HQ shows a shot from a distance behind the ship of Jay holding the communicator he's supposed to be transmitting the video from.

Movie Nut

Visible crew/equipment: When Serleena kicks Z and sends him flying, the person flying and doing all the flips and jumps for all the scene is a very obvious stunt: Thinner built, much younger and with longer hair. (00:46:25)

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.
