~So I Married an Axe Murderer... Week-end

Ok the week-end is here. So for your viewing pleasure I give you "So I Married an Axe Murderer."A lesser know Mike Myers movie. But, probably one of Mike Myers' finest films. The film is the story of Charlie MacKenzie, a commitment phobic who performs Beatnik poems in a San Francisco coffeehouse . Charlie is looking for the right girl of which he finds in Harriet, an attractive butcher whom Charlie falls head over heels for. The two begin to date but Charlie begins questioning his relationship when clues pointing to an serial killer show up and point directly to Harriet. I post the link to watch it all on line.
