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.

But the ones who like it - BOY do they like it!?!?!??!?!
And this is one of my all time favs!!!!
I hope if I ever fall for anyone again it has all the sweetness, fun and sincerity Mike Myers and Nancy Travis displayed in this movie.
I never cared for her before this!?!?! But she was lovely in this film!!!
EVERYTHING WAS WONDERFUL in this film: From the music, to his little car to the beat poetry...
Definitely, definitely my favourite Mike Myers movie!!!
I loved the opening... with the oversized coffee cup as it made its way thru the restaurant into the kitchen, washed and topped up... back out to a new custoemr giving us our first shot of Myers!!! All in one shot???
I loved the genuinely scary ending!!! I can't fault this film!?!??!! I am trying to block in from my mind right now cos I shall not shut up about it!!!!
I loved his Scottish Dad and the Scottish Wall of Fame!!!
No Mark stop thinking!?!?!?!
'Oi 'ead!!! Did ya eva see a head the size of that boys???' - How cruel!!!
Stop your thinking Mark!?!?!?!??!
'We 'ave a piper down!!!' Ahh so that is why the pipes never play 'If ya think I'm Sexy!?!' the guitar solo cuts off the pipers oxygen!?!?!?!
Sorry: 'There I go... but I just can't contain? The feelings that remain....' from multiple viewings of this little gem!!!
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"!
