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.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: While not the main star, its 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.
  • 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).
