A trailer claiming to be for a movie version of Friends has caused a stir online and on social networking sites. The trailer, called Friends: The Movie (2015 Trailer), is actually a montage of shorts from the cast's recent work including Lisa Kudrow's Web Therapy, and Matt Le Blanc's Episodes.

The scenes have been cleverly spliced together to make it look as though the old friends have met up with one another after a long time. Add that serious narrator with his blockbuster announcers voice and voila. It might not be perfect but if you are a desperate Friend's fan who has been waiting for a film version forever you might be easily fooled. We were ... a bit ... a tiny bit. And maybe a little bit disappointed too.
