Corrected entry: In the scene when all the top guys are doing the written test, the guy in the navy blue suit with the combover straightens his test out and it flops back down. If you watch carefully, you can see that he waits for it to flop down.
Corrected entry: In the scene when the alien ship crashes into the truck, it hits it from the side, and therefore would not split it perfectly; instead it would probably cut it in half and the 2 halves would both face diagonally.
Corrected entry: When J is chasing the alien at the building he gets to the locked door and shoots out the glass. The gun jams with the slide back but he still fires at least 2 more shots.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Will Smith (prior to becoming a MiB) follows the perp/bug into the Guggenheim, Will smashes a glass door. An alarm would have gone off (even a silent one) and guards would have come running. Not to mention the fact that there was no visible security around the museum, inside or out. It was deserted, as were the streets. This is NYC; come on.Lisa 176
Corrected entry: When Agent J gets his finger prints removed by a machine, it only removes the prints from the tip of his fingers. You can match prints from the lower parts of the fingers and the palms too, so he is still traceable.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Will Smith and the soldiers are being tested to become Men in Black, they are in the shooting range. All of the people there shoot off almost their entire magazine at the targets. Yet in the next shot one alien only has four neatly spaced holes in him and the others don't appear to have many if not any holes in them. I guess these guys are pretty bad shots.
Corrected entry: In the beginning the agents wear Immigration and Naturalization Services patches, drive Border Patrol vehicles, and use Customs badges. All three were diffrent agencies at the time the movie was filmed.
Corrected entry: When the "Edgar" alien escapes from the building with the lady, he jumps very high out of window and up onto the street. But when he is trying to leave planet earth, why does he climb up the tower if he can jump that high or scramble up the side of buildings, like the alien at the beginning?
Corrected entry: In the end when the bug leaves with his UFO, the 2 MIB are going to shoot it down. When they fire, Will is on the left side. After the shot he is on the right side.
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!
