Who am I to critique a legend? No doubt it's a great bit, but the way he keeps calling his "mother" "honey" ruins it for me. He says "darling" once, too.

Who calls his mother "honey"?

I don't think I ever knew that Elaine May was beautiful. She really is. Maybe I've only ever heard her, or seen bad scratchy video tape.

[1] if your mother is an angel of the first degree, then she's honey straight from the bee.

When I was a youth...I confused Nichols and May with Steve and Edie. I know different, right? But both couples were cool in an early '60s Rob and Laura Petrie kinda way. Stiller and Meira, not as cool.

What a movie maker this man was, ultimately will be considered one of the greatest.

2) She was beautiful.

3) I'm not a fan of his movies, actually. The first two are memorable and he made a few more good ones but I've always felt his reputation as a filmmaker is over-stated. I liked Primary Colors, though.
