Men in Black 3

First slide

Moderately fun, but ultimately forgettable third round for the well-established secret alien crime-fighting duo of Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones). In this outing, J wakes up in an alternate timeline to find that an extraterrestrial villain (Jemaine Clement) has killed K off, and begun the enslavement of humanity. So J must set the clock back - all the way to 1969 - and dissuade a younger version of K, played by Josh Brolin, from pursuing the course that would eventually lead him to his doom. Director Barry Sonnenfeld delivers a slightly tired retread of the comedy franchise, the premise for which derives from Lowell Cunningham's comic book "The Men in Black." And screenwriter Etan Cohen's dialogue makes wholly unnecessary forages into vulgar language and profanity, putting this beyond the pale for younger audiences.

Watch out for:Frequent action violence, at least two instances of profanity, occasional crude and crass language.
