So I Married an Axe Murderer Reviews

March 27, 2019
You may feel trapped in a Saturday Night Live skit part of the time; the silly plot doesn't hang together well, and too many bawdy jokes misfire. Nevertheless, a sweetness pervades the film, which provides a generous view of human nature.

Best of all, are the characters who would be at home in one of Hitchcock's wackier outings: folks who are sympathetic or absurd, notorious or utterly psycho.

Funny spoof on serial killers.
May 5, 2015
Quirky '90s comedy with mock horror action, sexuality.

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.

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.

Not great, but is very watchable romance comedy.

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.

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.

Not only is the film funny, sometimes side-splittingly so, but it's also very well made, with unexpected moments of real tension and tenderness in and amongst the comedy.

Easily Mike Myers' best movie.
