Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Enjoyable on many levels ... OK, it's enjoyable on only one level--if you're a big fan of Mike Myers's screwball idea of funny. That this script had been through a lot of hands in Hollywood before Myers agreed to star in it (using his Wayne's World clout) seems amazing as most of the truly funny bits here seem to be straight from Myers. Most memorable is his role as his own irascible Scottish father, screaming at his youngest son and talking about the Bay City Rollers. But Myers also plays Charlie, a bookshop owner/poet who falls in love with a "hardhearted harbinger of haggis", the local butcher (Nancy Travis), who may also be a serial killer. Mostly enjoyable, but there's also some weird stuff here. Try as you might, you may never rid yourself of the image of Brenda Fricker and Anthony LaPaglia making out. Also features a great soundtrack with Soul Asylum and Toad the Wet Sprocket. --Keith Simanton

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE AIN'T THAT BAD! 10 Aug 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Mike Myers delivers his best in this hilarious tale of a young man who becomes suspicious that his girlfriend is an axe murderer. Myers is brilliant, specially his performance as his scottish dad, and Nancy Travis is brilliant as the so-called mad axe murderer/ wife to be. Watch it, it's a comedy with an edge!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Charlie, two words - therapy" 27 May 2010
Format:DVD
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.

"Woman. Woman. Whoa, man! She was a thief. Gotta believe, she stole my heart and my cat".

4.0 out of 5 stars "I think I'm dating Mrs. X!" 25 Mar 2013
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
A box-office disaster when it opened in 1993 carrying a lot of bad publicity over rewrites, reshooting and clashes of personality, So I Married an Axe Murderer is one of the funniest and most unfairly neglected comedies of the 90s. True, there are a few problems with the end result, mostly to do with Mike Myers delusions of unbridled charm, but it still works surprisingly well even two decades later. Myers plays a paranoid beat poet (no, really) whose fear of commitment leads him to suspect his betrothed (Nancy Travis) to be an axe murderer (previous girlfriends, he decided, were terrorists and mafia molls). That's pretty much it for plot, but there's a lot to enjoy. Among the supporting cast Anthony LaPaglia stands out as his best friend, a cop who is disillusioned that his job isn't more like Starsky and Hutch and that his boss (an unbilled Alan Arkin) is too understanding while there are a couple of unexpected cameos from Charles Grodin and Steve Wright. Some Scottish viewers of a sensitive disposition may be less enamoured at the portrayl of Myers' Scottish parents (Myers again and Brenda Fricker) and the notion that all Scottish cuisine is based on a dare, but for everyone else it's easy to recommend.

As with most flops, this receives no love on either its DVD or Blu-ray release. The sole extra on the DVD is the original trailer while that doesn't even make it to the Blu-ray. Both have fairly bland but acceptable widescreen transfers, but thankfully the film is more than enough fun to make it a worthwhile budget purchase anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Romantic Comedy 24 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Mike Myers is a San Franciscan poet who falls in love with a sexy butcher called Harriet (Nancy Travis). But when he suspects she is in fact infamous Mrs X - a serial killer who has killed three former husbands in a bloody trail across America - he decides to think again. But by then, it is too late...
This film is a real gem - a gentle romantic comedy flavoured with Myers' unique brand of quirky comedy. The performances by the whole cast are perfect (Myers playing a double role very successfully), and the many comedic details are painstakingly brought to life. The preposterous plot is gleefully played out to its obvious conclusion at a desolate honeymoon hotel, complete with various parodies of Hitchcock and 'The Shining'.
The film's got an excellent soundtrack too, and the winning performances of Myers and Travis bring to mind the similar awkward pairings of 'Fever Pitch' or 'Notting Hill'. Charming stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never fails to make me smile! 17 Sep 2012
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
'So I Married An Axe Murderer' (1993) is a brilliant American comedy-horror film starring Mike Myers and Nancy Travis. If you're a Mike Myers' fan (I confess that I haven't seen a great deal of his work) - you will love surely this movie even more. As for me, it's become something of own cult movie.

Myers plays a charming, but nervous, unlucky in love man called Charles (and also his eccentric Scottish father who is wonderful), who is afraid of bringing himself to commitment until he meets the gorgeous Harriet (Travis), who works at a butcher shop, as well as possibly being a prolific serial killer of her short-lived husbands (going by the name of Mrs. X).

This is a movie that I have enjoyed for many years, it's just so funny (not to mention trippy and surreal, and admittedly silly in places but that's definitely a good thing) and a DVD that I return to every so often (at least twice a year) because I know that it will still make me laugh from beginning to end.

A very entertaining black comedy that is complimented by a good '90s sound track.

Highly recommended!
