Movie Info

Actor/comedian Chris Rock directs and stars in this American remake of Eric Rohmer' s classic French comedy Chloe in the Afternoon. Richard Cooper (Rock) is a high-powered investment banker with a beautiful wife and two wonderful children. Though on the surface it would appear that Richard could want nothing more out of life, his thoughts always seem to drift toward sex. Whether it's during his daily commute into the city, his endless barrage of meetings, or even his downtime changing diapers at

Rock's breakthrough as a director -- a chance for him to grapple openly with his status as a maturing (but still ostensibly immature) comedian.

One of the film's key revelations is that his resistance to having an affair comes as much from wishing to maintain his lifestyle (the high-paying job, the nice house, the kids) as from loyalty to his wife. Why sharp observations like that one would need

Rock's version is funnier, blacker, hipper, and sexier, but Rohmer's shows a little more skin.

Viagra jokes, I-have-a-headache rebuffs, a sequence devoted to the humiliation of buying condoms at a pharmacy...c'mon, Chris, you can do better than that.

I Think I Love My Wife is first and foremost a sex comedy. But Rock is sharp enough to set it in a world where people of all races share the same dreams and desires -- if not the same real estate.

Very little that's clever, romantic or witty in this formulaic romp.

A roly-poly CBS sitcom, only with more liberal use of the f-word.

I Think I Love My Wife doesn't seem to know which choice to embrace (comedy or drama) and ends up being a hit-and-miss affair.

Buppie infidelity, marital boredom and female temptation on every street corner are the predicaments posed by this Chris Rock directed oddly unromantic fare.

Until Rock is able to find a vehicle suitable for his unrestrained talent, there'll no doubt be more duds like this on the way

Rock's humor is once again in its diluted form here.

Here's a French sex comedy starring Chris Rock. Yes, really -- Chris Rock.

The big problem is, the movie is not funny.

Neither stylistically innovative nor particularly entertaining.

some witty social observations, but there are also some slapstick scenes that feel as if they were taken from a completely different movie.

Perhaps some comedians aren't meant for the big screen.

The movie has overtones of misogyny that stick in the craw.

I'm sure Rock meant well, but the next time he feels the urge to improve upon the French, he should try his hand at baguettes.

The problem with Chris Rock writing, directing, and starring in a film is that every character winds up talking just like Chris Rock.

March 21, 2007 Full Review Source:

Too bad the central character is someone you wouldn't want to spend five minutes with, let alone an hour and a half.

A crass mid-life crisis comedy that becomes an improbable, uneven rumination about love on the rocks.

Okay movie to watch on tv. Had a few funny moments, mostly I was cringing over how stupid this guy was, while at the same time could understand why he was bored at home. I think this was actually quite an honest film for a comedy. More for an older audience, I don't think those who have not been married or in a long term relationship would get a lot out of it.
The actress who plays Nikki is really attractive, you could sort of see how he got sucked in by her. I did almost take half a star off for the horrible singing at the end, however. Totally horrible, and would have been much more effective spoken.

The film is good for the vast majority. It's a rather mature critique of marriage that suggests perhaps marriage isn't for humans. Rock plays a hard working banker in a sexless marriage. The biggest problem here is his wife. She is neither attractive or friendly. I honestly can't see why Rock is with her. This makes it all the more frustrating when Rock meets Kerry Washington. She is so beautiful no man could resist her, especially in the final scenes. The ending is a real cop-out. It suggests that fidelity is almost a curse, but it's better than our protagonist being happy. The fact that the end realisation comes in the form of a very terrible song (WTF?) just makes it even more painful. Would have liked more from Buscemi's character, a man happily married for 17 years, despite his affairs and flings. Worth it just for Washington.
