Everyone is looking forward to the special ‘Friends: The Reunion’, which will reunite the original cast and promise to bring back many nostalgic memories for fans.
However, it seems that the meeting did not please everyone. With 15 reviews posted, the special only got 67% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, dividing the opinion of critics.
We separate the main parts of the reviews:
“Like every reunion, the special is fun, interesting and heartwarming – even if it’s too mushy at times – but that’s exactly how ‘Friends’ was, so it feels good.” (Vulture)
“Every part of this special that not only the six are talking about has a hard time justifying its existence.” (Rolling stone)
“The special is better when it doesn’t bother the actors and shows us what has always attracted us to them and to each other.” (New York Times)
“It’s as close to a scripted ‘friend’ reunion as we’re going to have, and it’s fascinating how easy it is for them to reprise those roles, 17 years later.” (CNN)
“This reunion is a self-expanding celebration of an old series, but still loved.” (AV Club)
“Oddly enough, despite everything, and its similarity to the invention of a DJ Khaled album, the end result of this special is sloppy.” (Deadline)
“” Friends: The Reunion “is the best casting reunion ever.” (Decision maker)
Don’t forget that “Friends: A Reunion” will be released on May 27 in the United States. In Brazil, the exhibition takes place in June.
