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

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.

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.

Mostly you spy the red flags that shout Troubled Production and We Don't Know What to Do With This Script.

Merely a clothesline on which to hang worn-out, off-the-wall skits.

A disappointing film that never finds its right tone

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

Quirky '90s comedy with mock horror action, sexuality.

Easily Mike Myers' best movie.

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.
