So I Married an Axe Murderer | 1993 | PG-13 | - 5.3.5

Mike Myers plays a young man who thinks that the beautiful and mysterious butcher (Nancy Travis) he's fallen for is a crazed killer.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sex is implied but not shown. The only nudity is a fully-nude shot from the back of one male character. A female character is seen grabbing the bare buttocks of this character and another female fondles a clothed male character's behind a few times. One scene in which a character fondles meat (and other silly and sick sight gags with meat...yes, meat -- in a butcher shop).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A lot of groin kicking. One scene in which a man and a woman fight. The woman is swinging an axe throughout. No real blood or gore (except the implied violence in the butcher shop when meat is cleaved). A vivid description of how a prisoner gouged out the eyes of another prisoner and then relieved himself into the sockets.

LANGUAGE 5 - One F-word, a few scatological terms and some cussing.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Murder, jealousy, insanity, fear of commitment, making fun of a child's appearance.

MESSAGE - A vague admonishment against fear of commitment.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
