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.
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: Soon after Jay pushes the little red button on the Ford POS, Kay inserts an eight track cassette. "Eight Track" and "Elvis 'Promised Land'" are both right-side up, although, since they are driving on the ceiling of the tunnel and Kay is on the right (while upside-down), it should be upside-down.
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?
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.
