Friends to Go Film

Sex and the City's success may have had some influence on this. Meanwhile, I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of boyfriends cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

But major questions hang over this! Where will they take the story? Are they actually going to have Ross and Rachel break up again and then get back together only to break up and get back together again....again? Are they all going to move back to the city and undo the whole point of the series' end? Maybe it will be some crazy art film where Joey wanders Manhattan and comes across a boarded up Central Perk, only to see the face of a younger, more attractive man staring back at him in a fragment of broken mirror. The film ends with Ross running for five minutes straight until he reaches the sea and turns to look at the camera with a weary look of existential angst before the fade. Fin.

I would see that.
