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.

Like an exploding haggis, funny but extremely messy.

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

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.
