Mike Myers: [Scottish accent] Charlie's father Stuart speaks with it. See more »

Goofs

When the honeymoon inn emcee is announcing the newlyweds, the first word he is heard saying is "Folks," but his lips don't start moving until the second word, "to." In fact, he ends the same sentence in the repeated words "folks," so this was probably a mistakenly repeated word when the monologue was re-recorded for the film's audio. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charlie Mackenzie: Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing.
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.
