Friends The Reunion“, aka “The One Where They Get Back Together“, is a 2021 reunion special of the television sitcom Friends. Firstly, It is executively produced by the show’s co-creators, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, Kevin S. Bright, the show’s main cast, and Ben Winston.Furthermore, The reunion is hosted by James Corden.
The special sees the main cast revisit the sets of the original show (such as the Friends apartments, the Central Perk coffee shop, and the Friends water fountain), meet with guests who appeared on the show as well as celebrity guests, do table reads and re-enactments of older Friends episodes, and share behind-the-scenes footage.
However, if you are willing to immerse yourself in the world creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman created for fans across the globe, you would be in for quite the ride. There are a few jaw-dropping revelations (which must be out on the internet at this point), and there is a genuine sweetness about the way Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer interact with each other. The bond is telling. Director Ben Winston has done a neat job of programming the special as a series of games and chatter, with even a ramp show thrown in the mix.
However the celebrity guests’ part turned out to be a bit of a downer, with icons like K-Pop group, BTS and soccer star David Beckham making virtual appearances only. The only cameos that mattered were when a few actors from the ten-season long sitcom actually showed up to celebrate the reunion and reminisce about the time gone by. The part where Lady Gaga gets to jam with Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay was fun to watch as well, with the former claiming how Phoebe’s ‘different and vibrant’ personality made some people who didn’t fit in anywhere feel special.
