With an automatic it is hard to tell and could be clutches, rings or solenoids or any combination, especially with that kind of mileage on it. If it only did it at certain speeds I would say the torque converter or torque converter switch, but I think your friend is probably right. Have you owned the car since new? Do you know if regular maintenance was done on it? When was the transmission fluid last changed and if it was what brand/type fluid was put back in? At mileage that high I am sure that there may be a lot of metallic sludge from metal wear in it and that plus high heat internally can jamb things up, especially the solenoid valves, since they have been using so much plastic in them.
