San Francisco in Cinema: So I Married an Axe Murderer

255 Columbus Avenue
True to its roots, Cafe Vesuvio, the North Beach institution on Columbus Avenue, portrays a beat coffeehouse named Roads in So I Married an Axe Murderer. The 1993 comedy stars Mike Myers as a poet who falls in love with Nancy Travis whose character may be a fugitive serial killer. It's fun to spot locations including the Palace of Fine Arts and SOMA in this odd movie that harks back to the John Hughes films of the '80s yet also foreshadows later, larger Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy comedies. Directed by Thomas Schlamme, So I Married an Axe Murder also stars Brenda Fricker and Anothony La Paglia and features local performers such as Cintra Wilson and Bob Sarlatte.
