The One with the Screamer
3 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode the best is everything around Joey's play. I did like the premier night when the director reads the reviews from the paper. Joey gets all excited about the fact that his performance was said not to be the worst in the play, this was too funny. And the director really flips out because of the bad reviews. This was a great performance by Reg Rogers

The story with Rachel's screaming boyfriend was kind of amusing. It was fun to see Ben Stiller in this part. he is a good comedy actor and the ending where he yells at the chick and the duck is a great scene

And I also liked the end of the show when Phoebe breaks the phone and tells Monica what number to call for repair
