"Create a public image that's basically parasitic, marry the world's most successful and abrasive television star, impose yourself on her show as a writer and producer, get matching tatoos, double moon a World Series crowd, and propose a three-way marriage with Kim Silva, your 24-year-old female assistant. At this point, when your wife files for divorce--twice--the public says YESSS!! You become Letterman fodder, and your own sitcom--your second--does a swan dive. ... By the time your name appears among the credits for your biggest project ever--the Arnold Schwarzenegger-Jamie Lee Curtis blockbuster "True Lies"--the crowd at the screening boos.

"What happens next? You turn out to be really funny. Self-deprecatingly funny. ... Your character, Gig, the very divorced and goofy partner to Schwarzenegger's bottled-in-Bond Harry Trasker, turns out to be a delightful foil. ... Every review mentions your performance, because no one can believe it. Hey, did you see Tom Arnold? Yeah, maybe he's not such a bad guy after all."

--From "Tom Arnold's New Life" by John Anderson in New York Newsday, July 28, 1994.
