Agent J travels in time to M.I.B.'s early days in 1969 to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history.
Barry Sonnenfeld's daughter appears as the hippie girl who meets 1969 Boris at Coney Island. She also appeared as Elizabeth, the young Rugrats (1990)-loving girl at the post office in Men in Black II (2002).
Prison Guard #1:
Well, well, Boris the Animal has a visitor. I guess one every 40 years is okay.
After J arrives in 1969 and leaves the Chrysler Building (42nd St and Lexington Ave), he looks across the street to a building labeled as the Roosevelt Hotel. The Roosevelt is at 45th and Madison Ave. In 1969, the Hotel Commodore was across Lexington from the Chrysler Building (the site now occupied by the Grand Hyatt).
The opening title appears in a pan from the Moon to the Earth (something usually done at the end of the MiB films).
The Chinese restaurant scene has been censored for the mainland China release. The sequence with J and K in the back room has been edited to remove all shots of Wu, thus eliminating the revelation that Wu is actually an alien. A subsequent moment with J neuralyzing a group of ethnically Asian bystanders has also been deleted.
