QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A secret agent travels back in time to prevent an extraterrestrial from killing his partner back then and thus altering the course of history.
PLOT:
Despite being paired together for more than a decade as partners working for a secret agency designed to hide the fact that extraterrestrials exist on Earth and keep the peace between them and their human counterparts, Agent J (WILL SMITH) knows next to nothing about Agent K (TOMMY LEE JONES). When he tries to find answers from K or their agency boss, Agent O (EMMA THOMPSON), all he gets is that he shouldn't ask questions that have answers he wouldn't want to hear. Accordingly, all he knows is that something in the past changed K into the dour, hardened man that he is today.

J gets the chance to see exactly what that was when Boris the Animal (JEMAINE CLEMENT), an extraterrestrial assassin, escapes from his lunar prison. Having been sent there decades earlier by K who also took Boris' arm, the alien is determined to change all of that by going back into time and killing K before the arrest. He apparently succeeds, as K disappears and any history about him is rewritten, leaving only J remembering that he formerly lived through the present.

Realizing that means a protective and alien repelling energy field around Earth was never deployed and that a Boglodite invasion is now imminent, J travels back to 1969 to stop Boris from killing K, all too aware that he must avoid his partner's younger self (JOSH BROLIN). With the occasional help of another alien, Griffin (MICHAEL STUHLBARG), who can see all possible futures simultaneously, J unwillingly gets partnered with young K and they set out to find and stop Boris before history is once again changed.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they liked either of the first two films in the series, are fans of anyone in the film and/or pics about extraterrestrials, they might show some interest in this.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sci-fi action violence, and brief suggestive content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
