Trivia

Nancy Travis interviewed a butcher to better understand her character's profession and to find out what traits a butcher possesses. According to Travis, the one thing the butcher constantly emphasized was to keep her eyes on the meat during cutting so as not to injure herself. Incidentally, while shooting the cutting scenes inside the butcher shop, she accidentally cut off the tip of her left hand's middle finger while chopping vegetables. See more »

Goofs

When Charlie is offered the "health shake" and retreats into the closet, a man wearing a red ball cap can be seen crouching in the lower left hand corner of the screen. 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.

Alternate Versions

In the original version, Mike Myers is wearing a short green towel (covering from waist to mid-thigh) that falls of when he hugs Ralph, exposing his bum. In the TV version, the shot where the towel drops has been altered-the towel has been digitally lengthened (covering from waist to mid-calf), and only begins to drop off before the shot ends. In all other shots the towel remains short. See more »

Underrated Mike Myers comedy
22 April 2003 | by george.schmidtSee 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.
