Great Movie Moments – Men in Black: Or do I owe her an apology?
Sometimes, a movie has a scene in it that transcends the movie itself. The Men in Black franchise has had its ups and downs over the years, but the first time, man, did they get it right. “Or do I owe her an apology?” is one of these Great Movie Moments.
I like this entire “Will Smith taking the exam” sequence; the bit where he drags the table across the floor is also great (I still say, “You wanna get down on this?” all the time), but I prefer this scene. The dynamic between Rip Torn and Smith is fantastic – and Torn is good at telling you exactly what he’s saying without uttering a single word. He likes the analysis, hates the attitude; it’s played perfectly on his face. Meanwhile, Smith is the most charming MoFu on the planet. I don’t understand why this guy doesn’t have a giant movie out every year.
Anyway, if you’re going to watch an MiB movie, this is the one to check out.
