Continuity mistake: When Jay touches the ball that goes flying around, the ball goes past the Immigration Stats board where the time reads 33:01:42 pm. Then when we see the alien surveillance map, the time is 30:21:40 CTN. Then the second shot of the map, the time reads 32:01:42 CTN.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, when the van is approaching the road block, you can see the 4 sets of headlights. However, when we see the road block from behind, we see one cop car parked at an angle, in front of another cop car's headlight, which would obstruct the view of the light which we saw before.

Question: When K and J are about to leave the police station, J says that he has a report to do. At that moment, his boss arrives and tells him he did a good report. Who did his report? It couldn't have been the MIB, because J was the only person who saw the entire chase.

Answer: The MIB - or K specifically - had already erased the memories of all the police that were involved to cover up the alien sighting. It stands to reason therefore that theyd already have a cover story in place - that is the report that the captain is reading, and for which he congratualtes J.
