Audience Reviews for So I Married an Axe Murderer

    The central romance isn't all that convincing but I appreciate all of the weird elements (Myers' dual performance, the great cameos, etc.)

    Great cast and a film that is not as bad as memory would serve. This is a harmless romantic comedy that is Myers dialled up to 11. The two part role for Myers is perfect and would pave the way for the Austin Powers roles later in his career. The is not perfect, but as a 90s film that could never exist today, it's quite good. It's interesting to see all the supporting cast joining the film to work with Myers, times were so different. The film is flawed, but overall it serves its fun purpose. 14/10/2019

    Not typically funny, storyline was ultra unoriginal, totally expected what's going to happen in the first 30 minutes. It was just not funny at all, the jokes are stupid and dry, transitions was great, if only the film could be developed a bit more instead of having a bunch of unlike-able characters

    One of my all time favorite movies. You have Charlie (played by Mike Myers) and he is a commit-a-phobe. He alwas finds reasons to get rid of women. This is a typical sarcastic tongue in cheek style humor that made Mike famous. It's down home appeal mixed with its funny off the cuff remarks makes it extremely memorable with scenes well punctuated by a great alternative soundtrack.
