Really funny.

It was a really good, funny movie with good acting. So I Married An Axe Murderer follows a man (Mike Myers) who doesn't have a girlfriend but has had several and he has broken up with all of them. He then meets a woman who he falls in love with. Later he reads a news paper saying there is a woman going around the country marrying men, killing them, and then changing her identity then he starts to get suspicious This movie isn't very intense for violence a guard at a prison described a terrible, murder a woman wields an axe and throws in but no on screen killings. Two people had sex off screen once and there's a shot of a mans but. Language includes two f--ks, s--t. So I Married an axe murderer is a funny movie with great music. It's is best for kids 8+.
