True Lies (1994)

True Lies Quote: “Fear Is Not An Option.” – Simon


Years of Shat The Movies debate were finally settled this week when Ash, Big D, and Gene carefully studied the Jamie Lee Curtis striptease in “True Lies.” The song playing in the background wasn’t “Leave Your Hat On” or “Cream.” Ash was right: It’s “Alone in the Dark.”

This Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron team-up was the first movie with a $100 million budget, reinvigorated Tom Arnold’s career, and might be Bill Paxton’s greatest role.

The Shat Crew discusses shitty husbands, nuclear fallout, terrorist tactics, when to deliver the punchline, and the unforgettable Crimson Jihad.

Plot Summary: “True Lies” Secretly a spy but thought by his family to be a dull salesman, Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is tracking down nuclear missiles in the possession of Islamic jihadist Aziz (Art Malik). Harry’s mission is complicated when he realizes his neglected wife, Helen (Jamie Lee Curtis), is contemplating an affair with Simon (Bill Paxton), a used-car salesman who claims he’s a spy.
