Trivia

The Poets Corner hotel scene was filmed at the Dunsmuir estate, which was also the location for Stacey Sutton's (Tanya Roberts) mansion in the 1985 James Bond movie, A View to a Kill (1985). However, the estate is located in Oakland, California, not north of San Francisco in the mountains, as depicted in this movie. See more »

Goofs

Anthony LaPaglia (Tony) noticeably corpses (breaking character by laughing) during Stuart's rant about Colonel Sanders. He almost corpses several times earlier in the scene but manages to recover, a couple of times using his beer bottle to hide his mouth. See more »

Tony Giardino: It's practically a bowl.
Charlie Mackenzie: It's like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino!
Charlie Mackenzie: [laughing at his Campbell's joke and wiping his tears] Oh, My sides. Please. Aidez-moi.

Underrated Mike Myers comedy
22 April 2003 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

SO I MARRIED AN AXE MURDERER (1993) *** Mike Myers, Nancy Travis, Anthony La Paglia, Amanda Plummer, Brenda Fricker, Alan Arkin, Michael Richards. Hilarious comedy about a marriage phobia plagued neo-Beat poet (Myers) who finds the girl of his dreams (Travis) may in fact be a psychopathic serial killer.

Impressive supporting cast with absurdly hilarious situations and performances. Myers also plays his ribald Scottish dad and Charles Grodin has a hysterical cameo.
