Shallow Hal (2001)
"altrudocious" and "humanidocious"
There is a scene where Hal tells Rosemary that she is "altrudocious". She then says that there is no such word, and that he must mean "humanidocious". My friends and I have combed just about every dictionary in the world, but could not find "humanidocious". Even the internet listed the word only in connection with the movie. I think I finally figured it out. Altruistic and humanistic both mean the same thing - unselfish, and concerned about the welfare of others. I think Hal means to say altruistic, and instead says "altrudocious". I think Rosemary then picks up on that, and teasingly says "humanidocious" instead of humanistic.
My Three Sons (1960)
My Three Sons did, indeed, run way too long!
My Three Sons started out as a nice, enjoyable show, but ran way too long. It should have ended while it was still ahead. The beginning of the end came when the family moved from Bryant (or was it Briant) Park and went to California. It might have been all right if the family number had stayed at five. But then all these characters kept being added. Rob got married, and then had triplets. (Come on. Did Rob really need three kids? Wouldn't one have done just as nicely?) Then Chip got married. (If the show had lasted any longer, I'm sure Ernie would have gotten married, too.) I finally stopped watching the show when Steve got married to a woman with a daughter. All these characters for a half-hour sitcom? I was getting dizzy! Tim Considine had the right idea when he left when he did. But that's another thing that made me mad. His character was never mentioned again, like he never existed. They could have at least had an occasional letter from him, like Adam in Bonanza. A show that started off good was beaten into the ground. How very sad!
