True Lies

True Lies is a 1994 movie directed by James Francis Cameron. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Tom Arnold[?].

This action-adventure movie is largely tongue-in-cheek. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom Arnold are spies. Arnold is married to Jamie Lee Curtis, who thinks he's a simple salesman. The movie engages in international intrigue, smuggling, terrorism and nuclear weaponry. In the process, Jamie Lee Curtis, unbeknownst to her husband, and unaware of his true occupation, tries to be involved in spycraft herself.

Some critics have accused this movie of being misogynistic with the hero using his agency's resources to stalk and frighten his wife whom he suspects is having an affair. Others have criticisized the film for depicting Arabs as terrorists. Others have praised it as one of Schwarzenegger's better movies.
