YMMV / So I Married an Axe Murderer

  • Covered Up: The song "There She Goes" by the La's. A peculiar case as the original La's version and the version by the Boo Radleys appear in the film, yet the main one anyone knows is the Sixpence None the Richer version, which was included in every single Freddie Prinze Jr. movie ever made.
  • Cult Classic: A box office failure on release, it's become a favorite due to the high number of memorable cameos and a couple of Memetic Mutation one-liners.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Michael Richards has a cameo as a guy who makes a joke about one of Mrs X's victims. Charlie asks about the dead man's wife, trying to find out if it's Harriet. Richards' character thinks Charlie is calling him out for being insensitive, leading to an outburst where he shouts: "I'm a very insensitive man!" It makes for a pretty awkward scene in light of Richards' infamous racially charged outburst at the Laugh Factory.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: While not the main star, it's a little uneasy to watch Phil Hartman in a movie where a wife is accused of murdering her husbands, as Hartman himself was killed by his wife.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Vicky the Alcatraz tour guide played by Phil Hartman. He's only in one scene that lasts less than five minutes, and he doesn't advance the plot in any way, but the bizarre prisoner murder story he tells with a completely straight face is one of the funniest bits in the movie.
  • Vindicated by Cable: A flop at the box office, the film finally got noticed around the time the Austin Powers movies were released (probably to see how Myers did such good Scottish accents).
