Men in Black

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)

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where Agent J is standing on a car and shoots the "Noisy Cricket" at the fleeing Edgar. The camera shot is from inside the car and just before Agent J crashes through the windshield, you see a precut area in the glass. (01:01:25)

Revealing mistake: When J and K get into the car (a POS if memory serves) K makes a comment about J fastening his seatbelt, if you watch in the background out of J's window as they pull away there are a few people walking at an incredible rate showing that they filmed the scene at a normal speed then sped it up when put into the final cut. (00:40:40)

Revealing mistake: When the alien takes off Edgar's skin, when he throws it to the top of the hole in the ground then drags it back, you can see its rubber skin. I read the correction too. And no. Human skin doesn't look like rubber glove material.

Revealing mistake: When K and J buy the "hotsheets" (newspapers) to look for information, the clerk who K gives the money to briefly looks at the camera. (00:44:00)

Revealing mistake: In the scene after J shoots the exterminator van off of the tow truck he shoots again. When the camera clips to the tow truck driving away, you can see the smoke generators emitting smoke from the curb. (01:03:50)

Revealing mistake: As K walks out from the car, saying "INS, Division Six", look at the road they just drove up. It runs a short distance, and ends at a hill of dirt. Presumably, the pile and the end of the road are at the sound stage wall.

Revealing mistake: When J and K are knocked over by the roach near the end, when they land you can see a square of grass move. Shows that a crash mat is covered with a bit of grass to make the landing easier. (01:19:20)

Revealing mistake: When the jeweler's ear pops-open, the angle changes and it gets replaced for a prop that looks nothing like the real ear. (00:54:35)

Revealing mistake: When Arquillian is laying flat dead in the morgue, his pulse on his throat is very visible. (00:50:35)

Revealing mistake: When James Edwards (later, J) catches the alien in the beginning and has him next to a wall, the alien pulls out a "reverberating carbonizer with mutate capacity" to shoot J. A quick tussle, and the alien drops the gun. When the camera goes to a close up on the gun, watch carefully. You see it quickly fade out of view after it comes to rest, and replaced with a few burning sparkle effects to simulate disintegration.

Quotes

K: All right, kid. Here's the deal. At any given time, there are around 1500 aliens on the planet. Most of them right here, in Manhattan. And, most of them are decent enough, just trying to make a living.
J: Cab drivers.
K: No, not as many as you think.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

In many European countries, as in Spain and France, since Dennis Rodman's weirdness isn't that well known, the celebrity mentioned in the last line of the movie as being an alien was changed to Michael Jackson.
