Men in Black

Continuity mistake: After Laurel is abducted and Jay tries to find her in one of the cabs, Kay brings the LTD around to pick Jay up. The LTD stops beside Jay in a position parallel to the white lines in the road. Jay gets into the LTD and when Kay drives off the LTD has noticeably changed its angle to the white lines even before it begins to move.

Continuity mistake: When K and D are talking to Mikey, they are standing in a clearing with no grass on the ground. When Mikey spots the trooper behind him, he turns and starts running towards the trooper, and he is running down a pathway in the grass. When K shoots Mikey and he is blown apart, there is a shot from the trooper's point of view towards K and D, and the pathway that Mikey just ran down is no longer visible and K is no longer standing in a clearing.

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. (01:23:20)

Question: When we first see MIB headquarters, K says that the little destructive energy ball thing is "a little practical joke by the Great Attractor." As far as I can tell, the Great Attractor is just a gravitational anomaly, so how could it play practical jokes?

Answer: Yes, "the Great Attractor" can refer to a specific anomaly in the Centaurus Supercluster, but that is a far cry from saying that the term can only refer to that specific anomaly. It is completely possible for a high-tech prankster and/or performer to use the name "the Great Attractor." It's like saying "the Boss" when referring to Springsteen. The term means a manager over a group of people in a place of work, but he can still use it as a stage name.
