Product Description

A married man (Chris Rock) who daydreams about being with other women finds his will and morals tested after he's visited by the ex-mistress of his old friend. A funny and thought provoking look about the joy and pain of marriage and relationships.

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

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.

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:):):):)

Chris Rock's latest movie starts out on a promising note, but looses momentum till it burns itself in the ending. It slides from funny to generally gross and to downright annoying. In its paths there are a lot of racial jokes, sexual innuendos, and a certain way-over-the-top Viagra incident. Because the ending is what the audience remembers most (as it is the last thing they saw), the movie looses whatever goodwill it earned in the beginning. And that's really a shame - this movie could've been so much more. Rock's usual antics are often either funny or disturbing and in this movie they prove to be more of the latter than the former, still he carries the entire picture on his shoulders alone, with the supporting staff getting in his way rather than helping.

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.
