“So I Married an Axe Murderer” is a delightfully offbeat, inventive comedy I can see again and again, and laugh every time.
Mike Myers, in a dual role as the neurotic but romantic Charlie McKenzie and Charlie’s cantankerous father, gives the best performance I’ve seen from him so far (I’ve yet to see the “Austin Powers” movies but I didn’t especially care for “Wayne’s World,” maybe because I couldn’t stand Dana Carvey or his character). Nancy Travis is quite good as Harriet, the seemingly perfect girlfriend who’s got a secret. The supporting cast also does excellent work, especially Anthony LaPaglia as Charlie’s policeman buddy Tony.
What makes this movie truly special isn’t the principal story line — the romance-mystery-suspense — but the many wonderful bits of inspired lunacy/hilarity along the way. Among them: every scene involving the hero’s cantankerous dad; Harriet’s sister Rose persuading Charlie to stay for breakfast; Phil Hartman’s cameo as a very intense tour guide at Alcatraz (this scene gets butchered when the movie is edited for TV, even non-premium cable; make sure you see the uncut version!); Charles Grodin as the surly driver of a vehicle commandeered by a cop; an episode involving a guy who works on the obituary page of a newspaper; the side-splitting scenes between Tony and his precinct captain (a very funny Alan Arkin). There are many such moments throughout the film, turning up in the most unexpected places. The dialogue is witty, and the humor is completely unpredictable and fresh.
Geeky Randy’s summary
After numerous breakups over what his friends and family consider shallow and a way to avoid commitment, the hard-to-please aspiring poet Mike Myers finally finds himself the perfect match in Nancy Travis… there’s only one flaw… she might be an axe murderer! Very Mike Myers humor with lots of buddy comedians in supporting roles or cameos, all taking place in a so-very-’90s San Francisco—this film only works because all the pieces fall into the right place. Surprisingly light-hearted given its title, only getting dark in the third act. Killer (pun?) soundtrack. Travis actually cut off the tip of her finger during a scene at the butcher shop.
