Directed and written by the talented comic, the movie suffers from the overblown notes of a punch-line-driven routine.

Rock really is attempting to channel Woody Allen in trying to craft a flick that flows freely from his own stand-up comedy style into a more sophisticated setting.

The film ultimately fails to make Nikki an enticing character. She is just a one-dimensional manipulator. This removes the drama, the danger, and the interest from the story.

You can enjoy the cast in I Think I Love My Wife, but it's too bad they don't have more notes to play.

Pootie Tang was spikier and funnier

I Think I Love My Wife slogs through drama and comedy as though both were a duty as onerous as a sexless marriage. Rarely do characters display anything approaching logic, unless their 180-degree turnarounds are part of a geometry proof.

As a director, Rock has little visual flair, so the film looks clumsy and stilted.

There's an undercurrent of misogyny in Wife, which is odd, since it ultimately wants to be a celebration of marital happiness.
| Original Score: 2/4

Just because this union of artist and material isn't a complete mind-bender doesn't mean that it works.

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

I think I hated this movie!

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

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

Wife is profane, awkward, and sprinkled with a strange racial subtext; basically the cinematic equivalent of Rock himself.

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

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

Just imagine how much more authentic, topical and engaging this would be if Rock made this film in 2015 instead of eight years earlier.

September 27, 2007
A roly-poly CBS sitcom, only with more liberal use of the f-word.
