Editors Note
Note SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alum Chris Rock writes, directs, and stars in I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE. Rock's film is a remake of the 1972 Eric Rohmer film, CHLOE IN THE AFTERNOON, which explores a married man's common struggle with extramarital temptations. Richard Cooper (Rock) has it all: a beautiful wife, Brenda (Gina Torres); adorable kids; a successful investment banking career--and complete boredom! He has become obsessed with other women, and a visit from an old friend's former flame, sexy and flirtatious Nikki (Kerry Washington), has him staring the possibility of infidelity in the face. Nikki pursues a friendship that provides Richard some much-needed excitement, but also lands him in all kinds of trouble.  He jeopardizes his reputation at work, causes fights at home, and rapidly loses sight of what he has built his life around. At some point he must choose between his affair-fantasy and remaining the faithful husband and father he's always been.^I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE provides an entertaining and at times thought-provoking modern version of a classic tale, injecting lighthearted humor into a sensitive and all-too-familiar subject that plagues the marriage culture. Rock perfectly channels the suburban, career-climbing family man, while Torres and Washington are convincing as the angel versus devil on his shoulders.
Reviews
New York Times "Mr. Rock has not only done his best work as a director and screenwriter but has also made an unusually insightful and funny mainstream American movie about the predicaments of modern marriage." 03/22/2007 p.E12
Box Office "Rock's second stint behind the camera results in a sophisticated look at the tedium of an old marriage and the temptation of a new love that marks a maturing of his humor without any attendant dulling of his cutting-edge causticity." 04/01/2007 p.98

Review Upon occasion, cinema can make for strange bedfellows. Consider, for example, I Think I Love My Wife. This relationship comedy marries the sensibilities of French New Wave auteur Eric Rohmer with the youth-friendly, sometimes raunchy humor of Chris Rock. Yet, as strange as it might seem, the unlikely juxtaposition works. Putting aside The Departed, I Think I Love My Wife represents one of the best re-makes in recent years, and it's because rather than merely regurgitating Chloe in the Afternoon, Rock adopts the framework of the story and some of the key ideas and reworks them for a new audience in a different culture...In doing so, he has crafted a persuasive and intelligent motion picture that should have appeal beyond his core audience...What is missing in depth and philosophical intent is compensated for with humor and humanization.

Review You have to hand it to Chris Rock. At least his source material is solid. For his latest comedy, I Think I Love My Wife, he and Pootie Tang screenwriter Louis C.K. turned to the classic Chloe in the Afternoon, the last of Eric Rohmer's Moral Tales, as the basis for this quasi-remake. Sadly, while borrowing the story of a married man who daydreams of other women and then really has to decide whether or not to cheat on his wife when a seductive old friend re-enters his life, they left something critical out of the formula. Namely, the charm that buoyed Rohmer's original is completely absent, trashed in favor of scabrous misogyny...In the end, it is not the sexism and misogyny that truly ails I Think I Love My Wife--if the movie was actually funny, Rock probably would get away with all of that--it's just that it's so tired. The humor falls flat. The situation is hardly novel. While Torres cuts a sympathetic figure as Brenda, Richard and Nikki are both repellant characters.
