Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Chris Rock's loose remake of 1972's Chloe In the Afternoon, the latter an entry in French New Wave genius Eric Rohmer’s Six Moral Tales cycle, is a half-silly, half-starchy adult comedy about a buttoned-up money manager, Richard Cooper (Rock), whose staid life at home has worn down his sexual vitality. With two kids and a somewhat joyless wife (Gina Torres), Richard's mind wanders on the job, on the train, virtually anywhere a restless husband can spot beautiful, unattainable women. Still, no harm done, until old friend Nikki (Kerry Washington) shows up in his office, wanting his support and counsel and friendship every minute over subsequent weeks. The two stay out of the sack, which makes it possible for them to be honest with one another. Nikki criticizes Richard for being in what appears to be a loveless relationship, bled dry of passion. Richard calls out Nikki for being flighty, unwilling to commit to anything.

As the relationship wears on, Richard's world is upended, and the havoc takes a toll on his family life and productivity. It's at this point where the film, co-adapted for the screen and directed by Rock, paints itself into a corner, with few interesting alternatives for a way out of Richard's dilemma that feel authentic or, for that matter, funny. A Viagra-inspired visual joke (gee, hard to imagine what that could be) is a crass gift to audience members growing suspicious that Rock has lured them into a chick flick. A soul duet between Rock and Torres appears out of nowhere and throws the emotional balance off at a crucial moment. This kind of thing makes one wonder how seriously Rock took his own project, yet there are signs that he--a very funny and intelligent talent--has a different kind of movie in him. Jokes about Michael Jackson, race, and even racially-slanted comedy are peppered throughout I Think I Love My Wife, harmless distractions in context, yet suggestive of a different kind of movie satire waiting to come out of Rock. --Tom Keogh

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Thoughtful March 21, 2007
Marriage is a wonderful thing. Very few things will make you feel like you're on the top of the world then having a wife and kids to take care of. The problem with marriage is that at one point it's going to get old, and you'll wake up one morning and wonder if you made the right choice or not. This is the situation Richard Cooper (Chris Rock) finds himself in at the beginning of "I Think I Love My Wife." He opens the movie describing the great life he has. He has a beautiful wife, two wonderful kids, and a job that pays well. There's just one problem: He's bored out of his %&#^!^@ mind! He and his wife, Brenda (Gina Torres), used to have sex all the time. Nowadays though there is always an excuse to not have sex. Either it's not his birthday, she doesn't feel like it, or her face hurts.

Whatever the reason is, the two aren't as romantically involved as Richard would like them to be, and with so much temptation in the world, Richard is finding it hard to stay faithful. I know the feeling, seeing as how I used to have a dog that used to love to play, but once he got older my goldfish was becoming far more interesting then he was. Richard's life gets a little bit of a jolt when an old flame of his, Nikki Tru (Kerry Washington), comes into his office asking for a favor. The two then begin a non-sexual affair where she is obviously flirting with him, and he feels guilty about spending time with her, but he has to admit that he's having some fun again. His co-workers are worried about Richard though. Not only does he cost the company a multi-million dollar deal, but they fear he will destroy his marriage if he keeps going on like this.

Richard's friend George (Steve Buscemi) warns him that "[Nikki] is nothing but trouble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forbidden Fruit vs the old staple September 15, 2007
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a movie I saw in the video store with my dad and we both together had to pick out a movie and he wasn't interested but alone I wanted to see it. I am glad I watched it. It was the type of situation that MANY MANY people find themselves in. The case of the "emotional affair" which generally can make you feel just as guilty because your mind is focused in another direction. I throughly enjoyed this flick because I understand the concept of the movie fully as well as love Chris Rock. I wasn't sure which girl I was rooting for. Both were beautiful and had positive qualities but I thought he had more chemistry with Nikki and in a movie.....thats what you want to see.....Age old question....happiness or morality and can you be happy and married at the same time???? Marriage has it's ups and downs and this demonstrates that lull that can occur after being married for 7 or 8 years and that you can get yourself out of it with communication and loyalty. I always like Steve Buschemi so I was happy to see him make and appearance. I think this is definately worth watching and I would recommend it highly:):):):)

2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously uneven, should have been better... December 26, 2007
Format:DVD
Been there, done that. Thus I found myself laughing at Chris' rants about his sexless marriage and frustration at not being able bring himself to cross the infidelity picket line. What I don't understand is why was Gina Torres cast as Rock's spouse? Most of the time Torres' acting came across as awkward, deer-in-headlights, and just plain hack. On the flip, Kerry Washington went all out, playing the innocent but seductive 'I could have you if I wanted to' role to the tee. She is the hands-down star of the film. Kind of made me wonder if she had homewrecking experience first-hand!(lol) She easily upstaged both Rock and Torres, to the detriment of the film unfortunately. Torres' miscastment and the overall ploddingness of the script hurt the quality of the film as well. Its disappointing because I'm a fan of both Rock and Torres and expected better from them. And what was up with that horribly lip-synched Rick James and Teena Marie duet? Straight trifling! Chris Rock won't attain Will Smith/Jamie Foxx-type cash with movie offerings like this. Definitely one of those could-have-been-much-better films.

4.0 out of 5 stars What is a Guy to Do? March 24, 2007
As much as I loved this movie I really have to say that Chris Rock stacked the deck in his favor here. Being male and being married means that he is going to have an itch- he will view every woman as beautiful and obtainable (if not for the wife) and somehow perfect for him. The problem as I saw it was the way Rock refused to let his character, Richard, be seen as the shady one. Not only has his wife cut him off from sex but the new girl in town, Nikki (Kerry Washington), is really hot and really throwing herself at him. But let's keep it real for a minute here. I'm sure Richard would not need to deprived, nor would Nikki have to be the least bit attractive for this film to work. The only difference is that Richard would be a much less likeable guy. Other than that "I Think I Love My Wife" delivered on every level for me. Sure, maybe I'm biased. I see Rock as the funniest man in showbiz and one of the most perceptive. His stand up show "Bigger and Blacker" has served as something of a Bible for me since its release in 1999. There isn't one problem in my daily life that can't be solved by quoting a line from that show, and I know them all. I even liked "Head of State." And still this movie is better than that one, it is hilarious in the way that it examines the world through the eyes of a sex starved married guy.

The plot is really easy to follow. Richard is bored with his frigid wife. Then, in a blast from the past, his old friend Nikki shows up looking for a job reference and so much more. She looks just like the siren she is, which means Richard is no match for her charms. Richard, taking orders from his most important of organs, follows her around, getting himself into heaps of trouble and threatening the cornerstones of his life, namely his job and his marriage.
