Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sequel to Men in Black is filled with imaginative creatures and weird life forms, the more outrageous and humorously creepy the better. Giant worms, multi-headed beings, slithering serpents, as well as humans morphing into all manner of the grotesque, battle or aid the heroes. Cartoon action is nonstop; weapons range from giant ray guns, vaporizing explosions, crashes, martial arts, even a near drowning in a toilet bowl. Other than the very young who are not yet able to distinguish reality from fantasy, or especially sensitive kids, most will experience the movie as a hilarious thrill ride. Some mild off-color dialogue and insults ("putz," "kiss my ass," "crap," "hell"), some flirting, a kiss (which turns into an attack by snake tongue), as well as females who wear provocative bikini underwear in numerous scenes. Lots of commercial products are seen or mentioned.
A flirtation, sexy clothing, a kiss during which the female's tongue becomes a snake, and one brief description of a past romantic encounter.
Continuous comic-book action with colorful, hyped-up weapons and superpowers. Extraterrestrials are armed with a wide variety of fangs, antennae, and "monstrous" talents. Serpents strangle, insect heads are whacked off and regenerate, a giant worm destroys a subway car. And, amid the explosions, gunfire, punches, and wild rides, good guys (helped by heroic aliens) blast their way through the ultra-high-tech sets to save the planet.
Some mild off-color dialogue and insults: "putz," "idiot!" "kiss my ass," one "crap," one "hell," and a question about "anal probing."
Humans at their best are protectors of the Earth and can triumph over superpowered invaders from outer space (albeit often with the help of over-the-top weapons). And, as always in comic battles like this, the good guys (both human and alien) prevail.
