critics consensus

Chris Rock's comedic instincts are muted and the female characters are unsatisfactorily drawn in this uneven sex farce/domestic drama mashup. Read critic reviews

    As first-rate stand-up comedian and awards show host, Chris Rock has demonstrated a definite knack for hilariously wry social commentary. Between the gangster rap yarn CB4, presidential comedy Head of State, and Heaven Can Wait remake Down to Earth, Rock has demonstrated the same knack as film writer/actor…but his end results in this arena are never as funny as their premises. The occasionally humorous I Think I Love My Wife only solidifies this theory. In writing and directing the whole comic she-bang, Rock proves that he is more of an idea guy than auteur. Though his efforts result in the best film of his short oeuvre (which, sadly, is not saying much), the overall vehicle feels like it should have been a lot funnier based on its promising hook. Based on the film Chloe in the Afternoon, the R-rated I Think I Love My Wife finds a bored businessman (Rock) flirting with the idea of throwing away his perfect suburban life with his beautiful wife (Gina Torres) and kids to sleep with a friend’s sexy ex-mistress (Washington). Very recently, Rock’s creative capacities as Idea Guy have given us The CW’s critical darling Everybody Hates Chris, which is loosely based on his childhood. Now pulling focus on his real-life role as husband/father, his new movie is also a slice of life, albeit not as earnest. Laugh-out-loud comedy, however, never rises out of this stew—-possibly because Rock is overtaxed, wearing every hat from head chef to bottle washer. Audiences deserve more yuks from such a gifted comedian. Bottom line: I Think I Don’t Love This Movie.

    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.
