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

Quirky '90s comedy with mock horror action, sexuality.

This guy always falls for the wrong girl. This time he thinks he's married a killer.
Lafe Fredbjornson
Weird black comedy with a strange bunch of characters. Mike Myers does his Scottish character act again. This movie was not too funny.
