| Great fun - don't expect anything else
Why should one watch this film? It's stupid, without any character developments and is about as believable as any James Bond movie. I'll tell you: It's great fun. When I watch a movie, I try not to confuse art with entertainment, as some commenters clearly have done. True Lies doesn't have a hint of art - but its comic-style spirit and adventurous action is compelling. And please don't be childish - admit you like seeing nukes go off on screen. This film isn't a Great Film. But it is Great Fun.

Quotes

Juno Skinner: Oh shit!


Goofs

If Harry can tell Aziz so many details about the nuclear warhead he should know that the missiles fired by the fighter pilots won't set off the nuclear warheads but when asked by the fighter pilot, Harry gives Albert a worried look.


Crazy Credits

In the middle of the credits, Gib (who's waiting outside in the stereotypical spy van as Harry's having fun inside the party) says, "You know what? I'm sick of being in the van. You guys can be in the van next time. I've been in the van for fifteen years, Harry."


Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by 1 second to remove an ear-clap, and VHS versions received a further 8 seconds of cuts (the video sleeve actually carried the note, "This film has been edited for censorship purposes"). These cuts included: removal of a head-butt; a reduction in impacts to the face with a hand dryer; a reduction in impacts to a head being rammed into a urinal; a reduction in length of sight of bloody facial injury; sight of a trocar being thrown and embedded into an eye; removal of neck breaks (including a rearranging of footage); removal of a tire iron being rammed into a ribcage. The original 2001 DVD release (issued by Universal) was an uncut version, likely taken from the Australian DVD, and wrongly featured the fully uncut print. It was recalled shortly afterwards and replaced in 2003 with a Columbia release, which features the same cuts but edited in a much more obvious and choppy fashion, using repeated and slowed-down footage in an attempt to maintain a consistent runtime. The 2008 "Greatest Ever Action Heroes" DVD collection features the full uncut version, but the BBFC did not officially waive the cuts until February 2010.
