Editorial Reviews

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

By Pajamazon VINE VOICE on January 25, 2001
Format: VHS Tape
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."

I admit I didn't like this movie at first; I've never been much a fan of watching Mike Myers mug his way through films. I dislike Wayne's World and despise Austin Powers.
This charming movie, however, Myers' fourth film outing, shows a subdued and sweet actor finding his way among a dozen equally-talented, incredible comedic actors. Other reviewers have focused on Myers' portrayal of the racy Scottish father, but to me that's just another example of him chewing up scenery like it was chocolate-covered graham crackers. Instead, take some time to watch him interact with Amanda Plummer or Anthony LaPaglia, his underappreciated costars. He is quiet, charming, vulnerable and funny, without being obnoxious.
The story is about Charlie McKenzie, a beat poet in San Francisco who has a history of dumping women for stupid reasons ("She smelled like soup...beef vegetable soup..." He meets Harriet, a lady butcher, with whom he falls in love. But wait! Is it possible she's the murderous Mrs. X, who marries men and kills them on their honeymoons? Charlie thinks so, and the ride is on from there.
Pay special attention to the hysterical interplay between Alan Arkin and LaPaglia who play a police captain and undercover detective, respectively. Also watch for the uncredited costar, the city of San Francisco, which is shot more beautifully here than I've seen in any other film.
This DVD deserves a lot of extras, commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, outtakes, etc. With a stunning cast like this one, there must be treasures moldering in a vault somewhere, but you'll find none of them here. Aside from a soundtrack in Portuguese (? ) and subtitles in Korean, Thai and a host of other languages, you'll find none of that here. You'll just have to be satisfied with a wonderful movie.

Buyer Beware! I love this movie and give the movie five stars. However, this new re-release is NOT a special edition. There are no extras at all. Not even the trailer for the movie. It does offer several trailers for other movies and an anamorphic widescreen transfer, but that's nothing special and is standard on most DVDs. If this movie is a special or deluxe edition then every DVD is a special or deluxe edition and we need a new name for DVDs that include such things as audio commentary, documentaries, featurettes, still galleries and trailers. Calling this release of "So I Married an Axe Murderer" a special edition is false advertising and the marketing hustlers at Sony who are responsible for selling this hoax should be called on this and be held accountable. Their integrity is seriously called into question and they need to take a course on ethics. I'm returning my copy of this movie for a refund.

If you think about the genre, about 80% of romantic comedies are pretty awful, 10% are worth watching, and another 10% are truly great (think Annie Hall, Something About Mary or The Princess Bride). "So I Married an Axe Murderer" falls in this last category. The characters are wonderful, the story is extremely engaging, and the comedy will make you laugh out loud. Add to this some hilarious cameos by Alan Arkin, Charles Grodin, and Steven Wright, AND a smashing soundtrack, and you've got yourself a classic film.

The only complaint I have about the DVD is that it is pretty thin on the extras (but the trailer, I have to say, is brilliant). Nevertheless, I give this film my highest recommendation. It is one of my all-time favorites.

This movie was panned by a number a critics upon its release in theaters, and I haven't a clue as to why.

Mike Myers, whom I'm not the biggest fan of, hits the bullseye in his portrayal of the neurotic Charlies MacKenzie, a young man who is so afraid of commitment that he spends as much time trying to think up reasons to end his relationships with members of the opposite sex as he does in enjoying the relationships. Myers, who has a penchant for portraying multiple characters in his movies, also plays his own father--a man who's convinced that Colonel Sanders puts an addictive chemical in his chicken to "...make you crave it fortnightly."

The beautiful Nancy Travers, as Harriet, enters Charlie's life when he stops in one day at her butcher shop to buy his father some haggas (sp?). After dating and often hilarious miscommunications, they marry. Then Charlie's imagination starts to get carried away (again) as he suspects his new bride as being an axe murderer who kills her new husbands while on their honeymoon.

The other characters that fill out this movie are truly wonderful. You have, Tony, played by Anthony LaPaglia, Charlie's best friend and a cop who can't seem to find any satisfaction with his job. In his words to his Captain: "When I became a cop I thought I was going to be Serpico, but now I feel like Fish on Barney Miller." He goes on to say that he yearns to hang from that "thing on the bottom of a helicopter" (a la the opening credits of "McCloud," starring Dennis Weaver).

Funny stuff!

Other characters include Alan Arkin in an uncredited role of Tony's precinct captain, who LaPaglia believes is "too nice" to be a police captain.
