Year 3 Day 24

movie: Men In Black 2
starring: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones,
genre: Sci-fi,
year: 2002
format: TV edit

plot: A few years after the events in the first film, Agent J finds himself without a partner, and up against an alien queen. In order to keep her from getting an object that will change who rules the universe, the former Agent K wiped his memory, and now must undergo a list of clues to locate the object.

You've seen me complain before about how sometimes tv edits feel like they are missing major plot points. This case, it just felt like the movie was going in circles.  Having Lara Flynn Boyle in a more comedic role worked, I think she pulled off a bit of depth to the character that otherwise would have just come across one dimensional. 
It was a bit predictable towards the end, with the one character played by Rosario Dawson. It just seemed to fold in on itself, undoing plots it had set up earlier in the film.
