This was Mike Myers's first film after the break-out "Wayne's World", and is up there as his best. Ignore the recent disasters such as "The Cat in The Hat", "The Guru", and the decreasingly rewarding "Shrek" series. This has everything from when Myers was still regarded as funny.
The main action centres on Charlie (Myers) falling in love with a woman he later believes to be Mrs X, a serial killer of her new husbands.
But the best characters are on the fringes - Stuart (played again by Myers with his Scottish accent before that schtick started to grate), Brenda Fricker as his mother May, and Anthony LaPaglia as best friend Tony. Alan Arkin even cameos as Tony's police captain boss, who just wants Tony to enjoy his job.
Throw in some extra bizarre characters (especially the insensitive reporter, Vicky the tour guide, and the pilot who resembles Otto from The Simpsons), and the comedy keeps on coming.
I have watched this film so many times, because the comedy nuances reward repeat viewing.
Well worth a go, especially as it can now be had for a few pounds.
