Synopsis:
The galaxy is a very large place....wait. Let me rephrase that. The galaxy is a very SMALL place..and we are but one of many marbles in the universe. There are thousands of alien species living on our planet. All in disguise. Some of them may be your old highschool teacher. Others may be a famous celebreties like Sylvester Stalone or Dennis Rodman. Some may even be your own pet.

One of the aliens on our planet is an important ambassador to a race that helps keep the earth a peaceful place. He keeps his own galaxy marble on his cat's keychain. But the ambassador is assasinated, the marble stolen, and the aliens are very, very pissed off. There are only two people who can stop them.

Actors Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones portray agents who work for a very special branch in the government. These agents don't exist. They don't have any lives. Their lives are based completely on hunting down and destroying the criminal aliens who wreek havoc on our planet. Their job is to also keep everything a secret from the civilians of the planet by holding a "flashy thing" in front of their eyes to wipe their memory. These agents are very, very special. They are the Men In Black, also known as MIB

But their biggest job is yet to come. They must track down the stolen galaxy marble before the angry aliens destroy our planet. Can they do it without getting killed? Can they do it without the whole planet finding out? - Aaron C. Rogers, e-guide.

Reviews
"This is a hillarious movie. One of the funniest films I have ever seen. The wierd and wackiness of the man who invented The Addams Family films have done it again. Smith & Jones are hilarious. Rip Torn is very cool as the head of the MIB organization, and the aliens are even wilder than those seen in the Star Wars cantina. The sense of humor...well it never, ever ends. It doesn't have a real mushy plot. It's yeechy and slimy with wierd cooky monsters for the kids, funny and action packed for the adults. All topped with a very inventive original score by one of my all-time favorite composers, Danny Elfman (of Batman, Beetlejuice, A Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Darkman, Mission Impossible). Bring the whole family to this film. Everyone will love it."
