Men In Black II

2

Dragged back by dollar-sign squabbling and catapulted through production by a threatened actors' strike, Barry Sonnenfeld had a tough time with this sequel to 1997's sci-fi smash. But that, frankly, is no excuse for simply running his MIB blueprint through the photocopier and hoping no one notices the fade. The action's still zany, the aliens never weirder, but this time Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones must take on the scum of the universe (Lara Flynn Boyle's busty medusa and a two-headed Johnny Knoxville) without the help of a good script.

There's fun to be had here, but the smart spoofery only glints where it used to sparkle, and nothing hides the fact that Sonnenfeld is just pushing buttons to see if they still go `ker-ching!'
