The One with Rachel's Big Kiss
1 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My favorite part in this episode is how Chandler got a James Bond tuxedo. And how Ross got a Batman tux and Chandler was upset because Batman is so much cooler (which I totally disagree with). It was very funny how Monica tried to convince him otherwise. And especially funny was the end when he finally got a celebrity tuxedo and it ended up being Diane Keaton's

The story about Rachel's big kiss was pretty fun as well. Again, I disagree with Phoebe that Rachel getting drunk and marry in Vegas was less wild because it was with Ross. Come on, it is still a crazy thing to do!

And Joey trying to adjust Monica's wedding so that his parents get to see his part in the show was pretty good too
