So I Married an Axe Murderer
So I Married an Axe Murderer is a 1993 American romantic black comedy film, directed by Thomas Schlamme and starring Mike Myers and Nancy Travis. Myers plays Charlie MacKenzie, a man afraid of commitment until he meets Harriet (Travis), who works at a butcher shop and may be a serial killer. Myers also plays his own character's father, Stuart.
Charlie MacKenzie is a popular, local beat poet living in San Francisco who makes his frequent break-ups the subject of his poems. His best friend Tony, a recently promoted police detective, chastises Charlie for breaking up over minutiae — since Charlie's reasons for breaking up are often self-serving and paranoid. Tony points out that Charlie simply is afraid of commitment and tries to identify (or invent) any reason to break up with someone.
