Product Overview

Comedy sensation Mike Myers stars with Nancy Travis in this hatchet-driven romantic comedy about a wedlock-shy coffee house poet who finally meets the perfect woman.

When it comes to love, Charlie Mackenzie (Myers) has had his share of bad luck: Sherri was a klepto - Charlie still can't find his cat. Jill was unemployed - but Charlie knew she really worked for the Mafia. Pam smelled like soup - beef vegetable soup. Good thing for Charlie these shortcomings became apparent, if only to him. Good thing for Charlie he discovered the truth before things went too far - before he stumbled into marriage! Because to Charlie the "M" word is just one step away from the fate foretold in that chilling phrase: "'Til death do us part."

When Charlie meets Harriet Michaels (Travis) everything changes. Harriet's not like the others. She's smart, sexy, and crazy about Charlie. This time Charlie is determined to overcome the fears that sabotaged his past relationships. This time, he's ready for some commitment. Sure, Harriet may have her shortcomings - but so what? After all those other women, what's the worst she could be? An axe murderer?

Review As the "I" of the title, Mike Myers is as eager to please as a panting puppy who won't get a treat until he performs his cutest tricks. Myers plays Charlie Mackenzie, a clerk in a San Francisco bookstore who wants to be a poet and a lifelong bachelor. Myers also plays Charlie's dad, a haggis-eating Scot who chews out Charlie for his marriage phobia...This gifted Canadian, from the cast of Saturday Night Live, is a master of mischief in the sketch format. The Wayne's World movie, with Myers and Dana Carvey, worked best as a series of riffs. Axe is also funniest when director Thomas Schlamme, whose first feature was the under-rated Miss Firecracker, keeps things silly and loose. But the plot keeps intruding. Charlie falls for Harriet (Nancy Travis), the owner of a meat market. He proposes, then panics. Could Harriet the butcher be the ax murderer who's been chopping her husbands into hamburger?...Credit writer Robbie Fox for the fertile comic premise of equating marriage and death in the male mind. But the story, involving Charlie's cop buddy (Anthony La-Paglia) and Harriet's artist sister (Amanda Plummer), is too convoluted. Juggling mirth, romance and murder requires a deft touch -- think of Hitchcock's Trouble With Harry. Axe is a blunt instrument.

Review "So I Married an Axe Murderer" is a mediocre movie with a good one trapped inside, wildly signaling to be set free. The good movie involves a droll and eccentric Scottish-American family whose household embraces more of the trappings of Scottishness than your average Glasgow souvenir shop. The bad movie is about a young man's romance with a woman he comes to suspect is an ax murderer...It is one of the film's peculiarities that the same actor, Mike Myers, is the star of both the good and the bad parts. In a dual role, he plays a father and son named Mackenzie. The son, a San Francisco poet named Charlie, stops off at a "foreign meats" shop to buy that unspeakable Scots delicacy called haggis, and falls instantly in love with the butcher, played by Nancy Travis. The father, named Stuart, lives with his wife of many years (Brenda Fricker) in a house where time has stood still since the day he left Scotland. He seems less an immigrant, indeed, than a colonist...If he establishes nothing else in the film, Myers proves that his success in "Wayne's World" was not a fluke. He is very capable and funny here, in roles not unlike those Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness used to play: Eccentrics trapped in worlds that are seemingly normal, yet secretly more bizarre even than their fantasies.

Quotes
Christopher Null, FilmCritic.com Easily Mike Myers' best movie.
Jeffrey Lyons, Sneak Previews Enormously funny!
Joy Carr, Boston Globe It's hip, lively fun.
Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress ...so lovably goofy that it's hard to resist.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide Myers is ingratiating and funny (especially in a second role as his own contrary Scottish father)...
