Men In Black II
Will Smith's first sequel was Men IN Black II. The film opened strong but failed to live up to the creative or box office heights of its predecessor. This Will Smith had few laughs and the script was basically a retread of the first. It did however have great special efx and another great score by Danny Elfman, plus the chemistry between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones remained strong.
The DVD for Men IN Black II was very strong with many behind the scenes featurettes including Will Smith adding lines in ADR, and a commentary from director Barry Sonnenfield.

It may not have been the best movie but this is one of the best DVD's you will ever find. Its packed with interesting extras and featurettes on all aspects of the making of the film. The development of the special efx is one of the many highlights. Also seeing Will's ADR work is pretty funny.
The Men In Black are back for more out-of-this-world action and hilarity as Agent Jay(Will Smith) must find and restore the memory of Agent Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) to help him combat a new threat! With their headquarters under siege from a renegade Kylothia monster(Lara Flynn Boyle, best known for TV's The Practice) disguised as a lingerie model, Agents Kay and Jay enlist the help of Frank the Pug and a posse of hard-living worms to help them kick some serious alien butt!
The scene with the ballchinnian was very funny.

K, that won't work he's a Balchinian!"

Worms "K, you're back, they told us you were dead, you look good!"
