Still in Barbados after Ross' keynote address, the friends cope with a variety of dilemmas. Ross has kissed his colleague Charlie Wheeler, although she is still officially dating Joey. Joey and Rachel have kissed as well, but they agonize over how to tell Ross. Phoebe's former boyfriend, Mike, has followed Phoebe to the island and proposed marriage to her, despite his being in a relationship with someone else. And Monica has developed really big hair, due to the humidity. Chandler's problem is that he can barely restrain himself from making fun of his wife. Phoebe, Monica and Chandler learn about all the romantic drama by listening through the thin hotel room walls to hear Joey and Rachel's amorous conversation on one side and Ross and Charlie's on the other.

Critic Reviews for Friends Season 10

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (9)

Friends isn't a sitcom. It's a soapcom, a soap opera masquerading as a situation comedy.

Feb 24, 2021 | Full Review…

There are plenty of one-liners and memories that will leave you cheering, laughing and crying.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The "Friends" soap opera ended predictably and blandly last night, with no big surprises, just two little ones -- Monica's and Chandler's twins.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The show never rose above its artificial, formulaic roots - characters assembled straight from the sitcom-writer's handbook, jokes delivered with mechanical predictability at the network-mandated rate of three per page.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Altogether, Friends is really just a bland show about bland characters living bland lives.

Apr 26, 2021 | Full Review…

[The series' scripts were] concise and top-level. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The jokes and the adventures have not aged a day. It's a pure, classic comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

I found myself laughing and identifying with the friends more than I had the first time. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Starting a TV show is hard. Ending one of the most beloved series of all time in a satisfactory manner? Almost impossible, yet Friends pulled it off here.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a classic, heartwarming finale that gives you what you want with just as many laughs as you could want.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It was more than a phenomenon; it was a smart, classy show.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Even the kiss that cemented Ross and Rachel couldn't disguise the show's larger anti-climax, a cop-out from the logical conclusions of the show's premise, conclusions it began to acknowledge only to ultimately deny their existence.

Audience Reviews for Friends: Season 10

  • May 12, 2021
    Season 10 is awesome because of Friends' amazing series finale. Monica and Chandler get their baby and in true sitcom fashion, it's revealed they're getting twins. ROSS AND RACHEL FINALLY GET BACK TOGETHER! And sadly the foosball table is destroyed but overall season 10 is pretty good.
  • Apr 19, 2021
    A short and sweet ending to this amazing and hilarious show! I loved every minute of it!
  • Feb 17, 2021
    When it comes to consistency, Friends ticks all the boxes: a winning cast, unflappable chemistry, complex characters, well-developed relationships, humorous insights, and genuinely good smart humour!
  • Jan 02, 2021
    The best tv series I have ever seen, I always remember these six friends, when I have a bad working day, I watched friends, and I felt better, thanks to this tv series, is amazing.
  • Nov 20, 2020
    Friends ends his cycle in a smart and clever way, with epic episodes and lots of fun.
  • Oct 15, 2020
    Best tv series i've ever watched
  • Oct 03, 2020
    This show will make you laugh, cry, and drop your jaw in shock. For it's time it is amazing, this show is so iconic and I feel more people should watch it so the franchise lives on forever. I will say that sometimes some of the themes are a little offensive, but for it's time (The 90's and early 2000's) I am impressed by the quality of the show, the actors are incredible, and the story connects you to the characters. The show has it's problems but I will always love and connect to Friends. =)
  • Aug 30, 2020
    Friends is an excellent show. All of the actors are excellent and their comic timing is also perfect. It's great entertainment. Friends are talking and living their life, and you see what goes on. The writers have done best work. I have watched this show more than once. Only problem I saw in this show was after season 6/ 7, after which show's comedy content started becoming weak. Overall, I loved it and would recommend everyone to watch it.
  • Jul 24, 2020
    When Friends stuck to being funny, it was a very funny show. However, whenever it ventured into sentimentality, which was often, it was vomit inducing.
  • Jul 01, 2020
    Its amazing like always..but I think that in the last one, the final scene we dont have the feeling that its gonna be okay for everyone...I think could be and happier way to end the show that was a way for a lot of people smile everyday
