I Think I Love My Wife (2007)
Critic Consensus: Chris Rock's comedic instincts are muted and the female characters are unsatisfactorily drawn in this uneven sex farce/domestic drama mashup.

Critic Reviews for I Think I Love My Wife
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.
Audience Reviews for I Think I Love My Wife
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.
