Trivia

This show was distributed by Warner Bros. which owns DC Comics, the comic book company that publishes Batman comics. Batman (1989) actor Michael Keaton was in a relationship with Courteney Cox (Monica) from 1989-1995 and was parodied by Matthew Perry (Chandler) on Saturday Night Live (1975). Danny DeVito, who portrayed the Penguin in Batman Returns (1992), guest starred as Roy, the stripper, at Phoebe's bachelor party in Season 10. In season 7, Ross rents a tux that was worn by Val Kilmer (he believes Kilmer wore the tux in Batman Forever (1995) when really he wore it to the premiere of At First Sight (1999)). Both Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox had starred in film with Jim Carrey who played The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995). George Clooney, who played Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman & Robin (1997), guest starred as a doctor in season 1. Gary Oldman, before playing Comissionor Gordon in The Dark Knight Trilogy, guest starred on the two part episode of Chandler and Monica's wedding as an actor doing a war movie with Joey in season 7. In season 3, the friends make a list of celebrities they would sleep with. Chandler puts Kim Basinger (Vickie Vale in Batman (1989)) and Halle Berry (Catwoman in Catwoman (2004)), Ross puts Catwoman and Poison Ivy actresses Michelle Pfeiffer and Uma Thurman and Rachel puts Robin/Dick Grayson actor Chris O'Donnell.

Crazy Credits

When the "The One That Could Have Been" was divided into two parts for syndication, a sequence was added that had the ending credits superimposed. It shows fat Monica dancing to some music while eating some food. The original hourlong airing of "The One That Could Have Been" did not have the credits at the end of the first half hour and this scene was not involved. See more »

The Best Show Ever
20 February 2005 | by (Farmingville, New York) – See all my reviews

Everyone says that Seinfield is the greatest show ever. I love Seinfield but it doesn't come close to Friends. Every episode of Friends will make you laugh non-stop. We have grown to love the characters and what happens to them. The fitting personalities of these characters are absolute genius. Rachel the spoiled yet sweet girl, Monica the mother figure, Phoebe the hippy chick, Joey the dopey yet cool Italian, Chandler the sarcastic loser and Ross the neurotic victim stay together to help each other with their problems in the big city. I've got every season on DVD. This sitcom, in my opinion, is the greatest sitcom of all time and it changed the TV world forever. It's a great show.
