The Daily Movie Quote: True Lies
"Same thing happened to me with wife number two, 'member? I have no idea nothing's going on, right? I come home one day and the house is empty, and I mean completely empty. She even took the ice cube trays out of the freezer. What kind of a sick bitch takes the ICE CUBE trays out of the FREEZER?" - Albert 'Gib' Gibson, True Lies (1994)

Synopsis: Harry Tasker leads a double life as a computer salesman and CIA agent. Those two lives come to a head when Harry believes his wife is having an affair while terrorists plan a nuclear attack on U.S. soil.
Fact: Jamie Lee Curtis actually hung outside the helicopter rather than use a stunt double. She did the stunt on her birthday.
Trivia: The character of Spencer Trilby is based on Marvel Comics Nick Fury.
Movie Mistake: The cut on Juno's face comes and goes as well as switches sides.
My Take: What a great, fun veg out movie. True Lies is great for grabbing some popcorn before forgetting about life for awhile. True Lies also demonstrates the genius of James Cameron who can take virtually any topic and make it amazing.
