Men In Black 3
Third Is The Word
Official Website | Trailers & Mo
PG-13 | 106 min
No one usually asks for thirds, but that never stopped Hollywood from serving triple helpings of anything that will automatically bring in the bucks. You can’t fault the cash grab of a third Men In Black, with all the principal players in place, but is this something people really need? Turns out we do. Apparently there’s more to the relationship of Agent J and K than any of us could have ever imagined, which makes Men In Black 3 not only watchable, but totally watchable!!! IT’S TRUE!!!
MiB3 starts off with the usual inane silliness of J & K hunting down gross aliens and then returning to their stark white offices to do office stuff, but then things get more interesting. Main bad guy alien Jemaine Clement jumps into the past with aims of maiming the man (Tommy Lee Jones) who done him wrong, so Will Smith has no choice but to follow him back in time so things don’t go bad in the future!!! Fish out of waterness ensues, Mad Men clothes are sported, and Michael Stuhlbarg acts weirderer than his screen brother Richard Kind did in A Serious Man
This means Tommy Lee Jones is younger, and Josh Brolin brilliantly plays/imitates him as young version of Tommy Lee Jones. Genius! Will Smith imitates himself and it’s all basically juss a MiB movie that takes place in the 60s. So far, so passable. BUT then things get really really interesting! They do! Not gonna say how or why, but it comes at the end, and makes the whole thing well worth sitting thru. Even if we have to endure the brief presence of toothy Alice Eve and her toothy teeth, pretending to be a younger Emma Thompson. What is it about Alice Eve? Why is she becoming a go to actress? Does she have dirty pictures of every studio head in Hollywood? Or do these studio heads have a teeth fetish?
moral of the story – we didn’t need it, no one really asked for it, but as third movies go, Barry Sonnenfeld semi-sorta has us asking for more! how is this possible? these movies are really nuttin but stupid fun. But #3 is more than stupid fun. WHY? we’ll tell you why – this movie ends up having more heart than Mola Ram’s hands done does in a year!! AND THAT’S A LOT OF HEARTSES!!!
Warhol of Fame: it was the 60s, so of course Andy Warhol makes an appearance in the flick, with the help of Bill Hader. Below is our movie Warhol of Famers who have admirably donned the leather jacket, sunglasses and white wig, including new member Hader

Verdictgo: Jeepers Worth A Peepers
