    This episode has a score of 9.3 out of 10. Yes it's got Brad Pitt (I don't care because I'm a guy) but this episode is really poor IMO. It's actually one of the worst episodes of Friends, and it's a major disappointment because Season 8 was really quite good before this episode.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like this episode? All the reviews for this episode have scores of 8.9 or higher and to me that is ridiculous.

    There is no substance to the episode. And that whole thing about Ross and the 50 y/o librarian is totally ridiculous.

    I actually LOVE this episode, and it's definitely in my top 10 of all time. Brad Pitt was freaking hilarious, Phoebe cracked me up and Joey... Well they were all good. And of course the best line of it was: "That's right, we said your parents flipped a coin and decided to raise you as a girl, but you still have a hint of a penis

    Yeh that was uncalled for too. "Un-Friends like" IMO.

    Well as someone who has never been a fan of Brad Pitt and quite frankly doesn't find him that attractive, I don't get the fuss I mean I really don't find him attractive, I gotta say he was hilarious in this episode. I mean surprisingly funny actually. I was a little worried, it's like 'Oh no Jennifer is having her hubby guest star what's this gonna be like!' but I really liked it.

    Don't worry, you're not the only one. I don't like the episode. I think the main reason why this one ranks that high, is because of Brad Pitt. Otherwise, there's nothing it it that makes it stand out.

    That's alittle drastic... I think that yeah, its added alot to it that Brad and Jen were married at that point and so the all idea that his character was the founder of an "i hate rachel" club is funny, but i (personally) think there was more to it then that. the rumor story was good, joey's fight to eat the turkey was hilarious and phoebe and chandler cracked me up. i think casting Brad helped spice the ep up, but the script itself was hilarious... IMO.

    It was kinda funny. Brad Pitt did a crappy acting. Yes he's hot and I'd like to do naughty things with him, he sucks as an actor.

    I do agree that Brad didn't really do a great job acting wise in this episode, though he did have some funny moments.

    I don't really like him anyway. I do agree he's not a "live audience" actor. There were moments that he reacted before time (you can see him getting ready to stand up for example) and there were too many moments where it was obvious he covered his mouth or rubbed his nose so you won't see him laughing. he wasnt the reason i love this ep. it was just everything around it. the script and the group.

    I'm definitely not a Brad fan but this was a great episode, I really enjoyed it. Everyone is entitled to their opinion obviously, but I doubt that so many people liked it solely because Brad Pitt was in it.

    I wasn't keen on this episode either - Brad Pitt wasn't very good IMO. But the rest of that season was really great!
