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.

The late great Phil Hartman is his typical fabulous self in this movie with a cameo as "Vicky," the Alcatraz tour guide. This movie has it all; a great soundtrack, an enjoyable and funny cast, infinitely quotable lines ("Mom, how can you call The Weekly World News 'the Paper'? Newspapers contain facts!" "This paper contains facts! 'Pregnant man gives birth.' That's a fact!") I could go on and on. Meyers is terrific as unlucky-in-love San Francisco beat poet Charlie MacKenzie. Nancy Travis is the love interest who may--or may not--be an axe murderer. The plot twists are clever, as is the relationship between Charlie's undercover cop buddy (played by the always-great Anthony LaPaglia) and his overly-understanding boss, played by Alan Arkin. You will laugh out loud at Meyers playing Charlie's father with a brogue as thick as pea soup (not vegetable beef!) and at Brenda Fricker as his randy mother. You can actually see LaPaglia break up as Meyers screams out "I'm no' kiddin'; that kid's go' a huuuuuge noggin!"
A great movie to watch again and again. If you grew up during the Seventies, you will totally groove on the Bay City Rollers snippets and LaPaglia dressed like Huggy Bear in "Starsky and Hutch."

Actually, I give this movie 3 1/2 stars. It's not the drum I march to, but there are some things about this movie that make it better than much horror and comedy on the market today. (And sometimes I do need a laugh between movies relating to the works of Shakespeare and Dickens.) First the story is well constructed, and even the title of the movie plays an important part in leading us to believe something. Next, Charlie's friend Tony almost immediately gives an important line: "Charlie, every time you meet a nice girl, you come up with some paranoid reason why you should break up with her." Later Charlie meets Harriet and he tries to keep his friend's message in mind. The irony is well constructed in that this is one time Charlie may very well have something to worry about! First we are lead into believeing something very bad is up; then we gradually receive information that says there is nothing to worry about; then the tension arises and we learn that Charlie is in fact in a bad spot! (Along with Charlie, we worry, relax, and start to panic. Excellent!) Charlie's parents are handled well. Through their appearances, we can see where Charlie gets a lot of his traits; we also get to see disputes between them; but in important things we see the love they have for each other; Charlie organizes a nice 30th anniversary party for them; and at Charlie's wedding Charlie and his father hug. Even secondary characters like Charlie's friend Tony, Tony's boss who is too nice, and Charles Grodin seem to make the most of their screen time. I said this is better than a lot of comedy out there. (To be sure, there is some humor that is in bad taste, and sometimes it's overdone.Read more ›

I'd say this is one of Mike Myers' best films. It can be safely described as a cult film after an unfair failure at the box office grossing only $12 million. Myers plays dual roles as Charlie MacKenzie, a commitment fearing coffeehouse poet and his dad, Stuart, a paranoid, singing, hard drinking Scotsman complete with accent. After a series of failed relationships, all of Charlie's self undoing, he meets the perfect woman in Harriet (Nancy Travis), a sweet butcher. Charlie's inhibitions get the best of him when he starts suspecting a few things. As far as the DVD, it pretty much sucks and can be described as a bit of a disappointment with the exception of three languages (including english), and the film's strange trailer which pretty much describes what the movie's going to be like in a nutshell. If you see the trailer, there's a deleted scene in the movie. That's something that I don't like about certain DVDs. They just put the trailer and the standard stuff on it but don't put anything else on it like the TV spots like some actually do. Getting back to So I Married An Axe Murderer, you may or may not like it depending on what comedy you're into. Everyone I've talked has liked it but then they're all around my age. Rather than that, movie is very delightful and entertaining. Look for a lot of cameos.
