    Synopsis


    So I Married an Axe Murderer
    Comic actor and former Saturday Night Live stock player Mike Myers attempted to transform himself from the goofy title character in Wayne's World (1992) (and its sequel) into a romantic leading man with this box office disappointment. Myers stars as Charlie Mackenzie, a San Francisco poet who meets the girl of his dreams, Harriet Michaels (Nancy Travis) when he stops to pick up some haggis for his parents at Meats of the World, a butcher shop where Harriet works. Although he's been neurotically commitment-phobic in the past (dumping one girlfriend because she "smelled like soup"), Charlie thinks Harriet could be the one. That is, until his mother May (Brenda Fricker) and cop best friend Tony (Anthony LaPaglia) begin to suspect that Harriet could be an axe-wielding serial killer who has butchered several husbands. Harriet's wacky sister Rose (Amanda Plummer) and her connection to several of the slayings make Charlie nervous, but he nevertheless pops the question, leading to an eventful honeymoon where all is revealed. Although So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993) earned less than $12 million at the U.S. box office, Myers hit upon the Peter Sellers-inspired formula of playing various supporting characters with this film, portraying Charlie's amusingly paranoid father Stuart. The actor repeated the trick with greater success in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997) and its sequel. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Did you really think Waynes World and Austin Powers was all Mike Myers had to offer? This is one of those under the radar black comedies that has to be seen to be believed. Is it a comedy? A horror? A mystery? Yes. Its Mike Myers channeling some of the best suspense movies around and twisting them as only he can. Where as Austin Powers was Bond...this is Hitchcock, if Hitchcock decided to write for SNL.

      I haven't seen this movie in years until I went to a relatives house and thought wow this is better than I remembered, so I ordered it. Mike Myers has two roles in this film and my favorite is when he portrays the father.

      This show is so funny, tons and tons of quotable one liners. And an incredible cast. Mike Myers playing his father, and Steven Wright are the best characters in the film. I higher recommend this.

      See Mike Meyers as a young actor and San Francisco from 25 years ago. Mike Meyers is funny as usual, but not laugh hysterically funny. Clever ending; have to admit I didn't see that one coming!

      Had to return this disc and order again. It took 5 minutes to load up the movie, then randomly it would begin to skip through the movie. Love the movie but needed a better copy.
