Ross buys a tux that he believes Val Kilmer wore in Batman Forever (1995), the Batman movie where Jim Carrey played The Riddler. Both Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox starred alongside Carrey in Bruce Almighty (2003) and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) respectively.See more »

The One with Rachel's Big Kiss, 1 September 2011
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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
