Episode 6 - TOW The Butt

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Chandler starts dating a beautiful woman who is married. Joey gets the part of Al Pacino’s butt double and Monica realises just how anal she is.

The Good: Chandler is funny and charming, Monica is sweet and Joey is loveable. The characters all shine in their roles and there is fun to be had with all three stories.

The Bad: Joey getting fired for acting too much is slightly odd. It’s not a great joke and it doesn’t say much about his character. Somehow it feels like there isn’t a lot going on in this episode.

Best Line:
(J) “He goes into the shower and then I’m his butt.”
(M) “Oh my god!”
(J) “C’mon you guys this is a real movie and Al Pacinos in it and that’s big.”
(C) “Oh no its terrific. You deserve this, after all your years of struggling you’ve finally been able to crack your way into show business.”

Best Friend: Chandler
