Product Description

Product Description

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: Sherrie 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 thingfor 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: "Till 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.Su


Mike Myers's first feature role without his Wayne's World wig is a performance at odds with the best interests of the movie. Myers plays a single guy who always manages to find something seriously wrong with each of his girlfriends. His new love (Nancy Travis), a butcher, may be the perfect woman, except for one thing: she might be a "black-widow" killer who prefers dispatching husbands with a sharp instrument. Robbie Fox's original script has a fine shape and strong, black-comedy material within it. But Myers creates unnecessary dissonance by playing a variety of characters (including an irascible Scotsman like the one he often played on Saturday Night Live) and accenting his skills as an improvisational comic (such as impersonating the soothing cadences of a massage therapist). It's not that Myers isn't funny doing all that, but it has nothing to do with the movie. Directed by Thomas Schlamme (Miss Firecracker). --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mike Myers stars as Charlie MacKenzie; a guy that is hung up on finding that perfect woman for him. Charlie's friend Tony Giardino (Anthony LaPaglia) states that Charlie has dumped several really great gals. Charlie insists that his last girlfriend smelled like SOUP! Charlie meets Harriet Michaels (Nancy Travis) whilst buying a haggis for his mom in a "Meats Of The World" butcher shop where Harriet works . Thus, the romance ensues. Little does Charlie know that Harriet has MANY deep, dark secrets in her closet.
Mike Myers does a lot of improv plus he plays Charlie's father, Stuart, who has some of the best lines and bits in the movie.
Brenda Fricker is also excellent as Charlie's mom, May.
Amanda Plummer plays Harriet's strange and odd sister, Rose.
Some great cameos like the late, great Phil Hartman as an Alcatraz prison guide named "Vicky", Michael Richards, Maureen O'Boyle, Alan Arkin, Debi Mazar, Charles Grodin, and Glen Vernon to name just a few.
If you like Mike Myers humor this is a "must see"!
Happy Watching!

With a possible exception to the original Austin Powers, So I Married an Axe Murderer is quite possibly the best Mike Myers' film to date, whether he or anyone else thinks so. Wayne's World included. Not only does it include amazing work by an all star supporting cast (Travis, Plummer, LaPaglia, Frick, Arkin, Grodin, Wright and Hartman), but it combines Mike Myers' comedy skills with fresh mysterious plot twists in an otherwise basic romantic comedy. Myers should be commended for his (and Shlamme's) work at bringing forth the inherant laid back nature and frequently ludicrous feel of the nouveau San Fransisco beat poetry scene. Just listen to him recite 'Harriet' and you will know exactly what I mean. This film is the front runner in seeing Myers' earliest creation of true art through his poke-fun-at-what-you-love/imitation is the highest form of flattery period specific homages, only to be magnified and perfected later on in the original Austin Powers movie. For those who recognized and appreciated the more obscure 60's references in the first Austin Powers, you will understand what Myers was on to in his work in Axe Murderer. An excellent film, the difference laying with Myers more reserved everyman character in Axe Murderer, complete with realistic flaws. Thankfully, the humor and drama are never sacrificed for one another in this film. Unfortunately, it is most likely this sophistication and subtle balance that has kept so many from truly appreciating the work in this film, having known him mostly for his more quirky or off the wall characters. A must for anyone who is looking to see the development of this man's career and truly good acting from a gifted comedian; or for anyone who is just a fan of all things Scottish.

This isn't Mike's best, but in my oppinion it's alot better than Shrek. Anyway in "Axe," he's an aspiring neo-beat poet in San Francisco who's had terrible luck with women. He's not a great beat poet but he acts like one, speaking with halting, Captain-Kirkian timing, a burning cigarette in hand, while a jazz combo plays behind him and slide images flash on the wall. His latest song -- which turns out to be the Chorus-like prelude to the movie -- is about latest obsession Nancy Travis, a beautiful butcher who chops flesh at Meats of the World. When Myers's Scottish mother (Brenda Fricker), an avid reader of World Weekly News, tells him about Madame X, a black-widow serial killer who offs her husbands on their honeymoon nights, he dismisses it as more kooky tabloid fare, but after meeting and falling in love with Travis, he starts to observe disturbing similarities between her and Madame X. Both women seem to have lived in the same cities at the same time; both share acquaintances with the same names. Myers, expressing his fears to cop and friend Anthony LaPaglia, becomes convinced he's next on the chopping block. "Axe" is not art by any means. It's often overly taken up with resolving itself. But Myers and others create an enjoyably loose, anti-slick feeling about the affair. Amanda Plummer is amusingly off-kilter as Travis's weird sister; Alan Arkin makes much of a small role as LaPaglia's painfully sensitive supervisor. Among the cameo players, Phil Hartman is an amusingly fascistic guide at the Alcatraz prison and Charles Grodin works with superb understatement as a laconic driver reluctant to give up his car to desperate officer LaPaglia. I won't say anymore other than that if you're a mike fan then this is essential viewing.
