Corrected entry: At the end, Jay is holding hotdogs in his left hand and newspapers in his right. He hands the hotdogs to L but the papers disappear.
Corrected entry: The Arquillians threaten to destroy the Earth if they cannot retrieve the Galaxy. But where is Griffin's Arc Net Shield (MIB 3) which protects earth from alien invasions?
Corrected entry: When Jay and the woman in the morgue are feeling around in the body and Jay takes his hand out, there is no blood on his glove. The woman, in another shot has blood on her gloves.
Corrected entry: When Edgar stabs the Arquillians in the neck, they appear to die instantly from their wounds. However we see later at the morgue that the bodies are controlled from a control room in their heads. A neck wound to the robot body would not appear to be fatal to the operator in the robot's head.
Corrected entry: In the pawnshop right after Jeebs' head grows back, K tells him, "I want you off the next transport off this rock or I'm going to shoot you where it don't grow back". Yet Jeebs appears in the next movie. (00:20:35)
Corrected entry: When Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are walking through the hallway, right after they're done with the gun test where Smith shoots the little girl, Tommy Lee Jones says "this way" and they turn into the hallway. If you look closely on the right side of the screen, you can see the door that leads to the shooting test, which shows that it's the same hallway that they passed through before.
Corrected entry: When K reveals MIB's existence to J, J replies that K has been reading too many supermarket tabloids. K's response to this is to praise such tabloids as great journalism. These publications reveal information that is, in the film's universe, highly classified. Logically, K would see this as a threat and seek to neuralize, not praise, the staff of these tabloids.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Edgar's skin gets inhabited by the alien bug, and goes back into the house, he pulls his skin back to make it stop hanging from his bones, in the next shot, he appears to still be holding it back, but when he lets go, it is very apparent that he was only holding his hair.
Corrected entry: When K and J are leaving the NYPD station, J says he has to write a report. Then his boss walks past and compliments him on a good report. Who wrote the report? J was the only person who witnessed the whole chase.
Corrected entry: After they drive through the tunnel, they pass through a tollbooth. The sign on the toll says that it accepts the 1 cent coin, more commonly known as the penny. Illinois is the only state in which pennies can be used in tollbooths.
Corrected entry: When "Edgar" walks into the morgue, he's carrying a shotgun. He sets it down by the side of the window. Later, J walks in and starts ringing the bell. You can clearly see there is no shotgun there. Also, when he has the revolver to the lady's head, he doesn't have the gun. So where did the shotgun go?
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. (01:16:00)
Large cop: If you were half the man I am... [Jay looks pointedly at policeman's stomach] I am half the man you are!
