Detailed plot synopsis reviews of So I Married An Axe Murderer

Charlie is a serial dater, and his best friend cop Tony thinks that he is simply a commitment-phobe who is neurotic when it comes to analyzing the flaws of the women he dates. Charlie then meets Harriet, a butcher, and the two hit it off. As they get to know each other Charlie finds out that Harriet lives with her sister Rose, that she used to have a relationship with a martial arts guy, that she previously lived in Atlantic City, and that she mentions a "Ralph" in her sleep. Things are rosy, and Charlie introduces Harriet to his kooky parents. While reading one of his mom's tabloids, he comes across an article about a serial killer Mrs. X who kills husbands during their honeymoon, and oddly, some facts about her appear similar to Harriet's life. Again, Charlie neuro-analyzes that Harriet is wrong for him, Tony reminds him, he is being paranoid. Charlie asks him to do a background check on her, and as he increasingly becomes shifty, he ends it with Harriet. Tony then tells Charlie that someone has already confessed to the crimes. Charlie wins Harriet back and they get married. At a secluded hotel, the couple honeymoons, however Tony learns that the one who confessed to the crime is a liar, and all signs point to Harriet. He tries to warn Charlie on the phone but is abruptly cut off. Charlie realizes he's in danger, but is shocked to find Rose in the room, with an axe. As Rose pursues Charlie, he finds out that she kills her sister's husbands since she never wants to lose her. Tony comes to the rescue, and subdues Rose. Mystery solved, Charlie's fears are gone, and he and Harriet enjoy their married life together.
