Episode 114- SO I MARRIED AN AXE MURDERER

This week on the show, we talk about 1993’s So I Married an Axe Murderer, starring Mike Myers, Nancy Travis, and Mike Myers again. We loved it when we were kids, but were we still coasting on the fumes of Wayne’s World or is it actually good? JM was sick this week, so we’re joined this week by What She’s Having‘s Lisa Kennedy. So unless you think we might be crazed axe murderers, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes! And be sure to follow us on Twitter!

    I love this movie – definitely rewatchable for me. I loved Lisa’s analysis of Harriet, and I agree that watching this movie as an adult, I have a higher opinion of her than when I was a kid and now I realize just how nuanced Nancy Travis’ performance is. One thing, one of you mentions that Harriet knows that Charlie will be killed upon their marriage but my impression was that she never knew the truth (as shown by when Rose writes the fake note to Harriet that’s supposedly from Charlie, that said he’s decided to leave her, when Rose plans to kill Charlie.) Harriet instead thinks that, like all the husbands before him, he will leave her on their honeymoon, and that’s what she’s afraid of and sad about. The fact that she has to project these emotions in a way that will still leave us guessing whether or not she’s the killer – emotions that could be taken either as understandable fear or as axe-murderer lunacy – shows that Nancy Travis is a great actor.

    • Good point, you’re probably right and we got confused. Honestly, even if it turned out Nancy Travis was an axe-murder, I’d put a ring on it. A girl who laughs at all your jokes and brings home great cuts of meat is worth it.
