The One Without the Ski Trip
3 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode the writers had a good idea to show how a break up of a couple may be a problem for their mutual friends as well. I think they did a fairly decent job with it although I must say I was not too happy with the episode

The whole Chandler acting the same as when his parents divorced was not funny to me at all, actually it just was getting on my nerves. Same as the annoying anti-smoking campaign they had in there

My favorite in this episode was Ross. Being all upset, guilting his friends and talking to Cartol while she wanted him out to get to the romantic anniversary with Susan was very funny
