Men in Black | 1997 | PG-13 | - 1.5.4

Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith battle aliens.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Scary looking aliens (tentacles come out of mouths, they look like insects). Aliens are shot and goo explodes all over people. An alien's head is shot off and he regrows one immediately. A man is pulled into a pit and we hear screams and crunching sounds; then a body is shown and it looks like a bag of skin. An exterminator is killed when his wand is shoved down his throat. A human body is seen decaying. We see a man squished in half, with his legs by his head. An alien eats a human and we see the alien's intestines. An alien's tentacle sticks someone in the neck and kills him. An alien pulls his skin back very tight and we see gums, etc. Explosions. A ball spins around and hits walls and people. Chases, reckless driving, scuffles, falls (with splat sounds). In a couple of scenes people are tossed around.

LANGUAGE 4 - Many scatological references, many mild obscenities and some anatomical references, one profane hand gesture.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
