'Friends' reunion coming to the big screen

Tbdfriends070408_2 From the Dept. of Really Bad Ideas, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports the cast of now-syndicated staple Friends will reunite for the big-screen treatment. That's right, the crew that taught kids of the '90s that the Village was the only part of New York worth living in will dwell in the land of unnecessary reunions with shows like The Facts of Life and Growing Pains.

"The box office success of Sex And The City has really got their wheels spinning about how a Friends film could be just as big, if done right," a source says of the cast. "Timing and the script are really important, but now that Courteney (Cox) and Jen (Aniston) both have production companies, they can potentially get very involved in those decisions."

Warner Bros. will apparently be producing the project, which will supposedly even feature David Schwimmer, who once said he would refuse to work on a reunion show. But now that all the cast is in their 40s (save Aniston, who's 39), will a flick be any good? If that Joey spinoff is any frame of reference, then no.
