After the success of the movie version of Sex and the City, it seems the cast of Friends is also toying with the idea of a big-screen version. The show, which went off the air in 2004, starred Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer.

"Jennifer, Courteney and the rest of the cast are keen to reprise their roles, under the right circumstances," a source said, according the UK's Daily Mail. "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. Timing and the script are really important, but now that Courteney and Jen both have production companies, they can potentially get very involved in those decisions."

As a huge Friends fan, I'm a little apprehensive about bringing the TV show to the big screen. Will the reputation of the franchise suffer because of it? Will we see product placement and integrated advertisements aplenty like with Sex and the City? More importantly, will Ross and Rachel be together in the end?
