Suicidal, washed-up, has-been actor Bill Williams (Tom Arnold), the highlight of his career having been involved with the Schwarzenegger action-flick ‘True Lies’, donates his stuff to a homeless man, who downs his alcohol and takes half the pills that Bill was going to use for suicide.

Suicide scratched, out of nowhere crazy film agent Johnny Bernstein (Henry Winkler), shows up with an offer for Bill; billionaire, Davis Roman (Joe Mantegna) will finance a film where his son Aaron (Eric Gores) stars, his all-time favorite film of course being ‘True Lies’. Bill agrees.

Running into the drunk who took his drugs and alcohol, who turns out to be called Guy Prince (Richard Edson), Bill offers him a part in the film. With his hopes up that this may just be his second shot at stardom, Bill’s hopes come crashing down when he discovers that Aaron suffers from cerebral palsy, and whose favorite all-time star is Bill, as his all-time favorite film is ‘True Lies’.

Yet the more they hang out, the more Bill believes this can be done, and done well. They start writing the script of ‘Two Spies’ together- they even have a hot-tub tender kiss between Aaron and Arielle Kebbel to roll out the end credits…

With cameos by ‘The Terminator’ himself and Shaq, this feel-good movie is designed to do one thing- make you feel good…
