  • Good mix of skillful acting and physical comedy

    7.5
    This is an episode (uncommon for the series, really), in which the writing, while acceptable, takes a back seat to the performances. Ross's scene in the tanning booth is completely in character and one of the finest examples of physical comedy in the series, the behavior of Monica's ill-mannered friend Amanda (played exuberantly by Jennifer Coolidge) is refreshingly appalling ("Wow, that accident must have been terrible! You look positively ghastly!"), and the entire cast gave brisk and effortless deliveries of their somewhat predictable lines (Joey: "I'm an expert at taking off bras").

    Last but not least, it was a tremendous relief to finally put the implausible pairing of Rachel and Joey to rest--that relationship seemed forced from the beginning.
