'Men in Black'

Scene from this movie The United States allows 1,500 legal aliens to live among us, mostly in New York. Of course, the government doesn't tell us they're here. These creatures look just like us, and their activities are constantly monitored by a team of crack covert operatives from an unofficial branch of the Immigration and Naturalization Service known as the Men in Black, or MiB. The mysterious G-men track down undesirable illegals and send them packing.

Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and his partner, Agent J (Will Smith), are up against a "bug," one of the dumbest, meanest, ugliest, cussedest varmints in the known universe. The mammal-hating insectoid causes war to be declared between Earth and another galaxy. -- Rita Kempley
