Superman and Men in Black



A friend of mine had a unfinished copy of Men in Black that we watched months before it was released to the theaters.  The movie was complete, but missing music and most of the special effects, so it was interesting to watch in that form.  Then we got to the scene where Tommy Lee Jones' character is interrogating an alien that is in the form of a little puppy.  This was a fan favorite scene in the final film, after the dog's face had been digitally altered to react and talk back to Jones... but in the version we were watching, it was just a poor scared little pooch being shaken.  Don't tell me that no animals were harmed during the making of that film, that little guy must have been scarred for life!

"Hared?!" You mean, that pug was turned into a jackrabbit?

At last year's Rose City Comic Con I dressed as MiB. Another guy had a similar idea. I thought it would be funny to go around to "question" cosplayers dressed as Superman and other famous ETs. We never did carry through on that, though.

I always assumed it was a stuffed dog when he was shaking it ...

Nothing that "pugly" could have been fake. ;-D
