Everyone quotes the Scottish-accented misanthropy. But at its heart, "Axe" is a sweet, funny romance between people trapped in patterns and freed by a positive paradigm shift. It's also the reason we never see Mike Myers' true face in films anymore.

Although Myers is a brilliant comic, any potential he has as a romantic lead remains unfulfilled.

Arkin and the late Hartman also provide memorable moments, while the film as a whole is good-natured enough to make up for its inconsistency.

A tres hip slice of life about the dilemma of marital commitment with just a pinch of Hitchcock providing the cutting edge.

Myers pumps out a river of inventive shtick, but it doesn't cohere or connect; he seems less a character than a comedian doing couch time on a late-night talk show.

The look of So I Married an Axe Murderer is crisply professional, and John Graysmark's production design provides an element of visual surprise.

Works in bits and pieces and it's hard to care about the plot very much, but it's all so lovably goofy that it's hard to resist

Better on video than in the theatre. It's got that hindsight camp appeal.

Juggling mirth, romance and murder requires a deft touch -- think of Hitchcock's Trouble With Harry. Axe is a blunt instrument.

It doesn't help matters much that director Thomas Schlamme pays homage to great marital murder mysteries of the past, mostly because the attempts to borrow from the classics are so halfhearted.

Axe is not art by any means. It's often overly taken up with resolving itself. But Myers and others create an enjoyably loose, anti-slick feeling about the affair.
