Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis star in James Cameron’s action-comedy. Helen Tasker (Curtis) thinks her 15-year marriage to Harry (Schwarzenegger) has become as dull as his job in computer sales. However, she doesn’t know that Harry’s actually an undercover government operative who spends his days battling terrorists and spies rather than flogging hard drives and floppy disks. But Helen picks a bad time to spice up her life with an extramarital dalliance: when he drops in to her office unannounced, Harry overhears her making plans for a date with her colleague Simon (Bill Paxton). Harry’s reaction is extraordinary: in a sorely misguided attempt to give her the excitement she craves, he arranges for her to be kidnapped and sent on a ‘secret assignment’ as a spy posing as a prostitute. But his hare-brained scheme goes awry when his two worlds collide. His daughter (Eliza Dushku) is kidnapped by terrorists and only he and his wife can save her. Also starring Tom Arnold, Tia Carrere, Art Malik and Grant Heslov.
