Robert's Review

Richard Cooper (Chris Rock) is a successful businessman who seemingly has it all. He's got a great job; a beautiful, intelligent wife named Brenda (Gina Torres) who takes great care of his two kids; etc. There's only one problem he's bored out of his frickin' mind! No matter how hard he tries, Brenda hardly ever has sex with him anymore... always too tired and never in the mood. They both see a couple's councilor to try and fix that, but it never helps. So, Richard starts musing about what it would be like to be single and to be able to have sex (as much as he wants) again. Enter Nikki Tru (Kerry Washington), who happens to be an old friend of Richard's that he hasn't seen in many years. She comes to town and just looks him up one day out of the blue, but she's not there for just a friendly visit her life hasn't worked out how she thought it would either and she thinks Richard and her would make a great couple, if only he'd leave his wife. Richard's dedication and loyalty to his wife is tested more and more as he tried to fend off Nikki's advances... but it's hard to not spend time with her. She's FUN and he's been bored for so long. Can he manage to say no in the end? Will he stay true to Brenda... for the sake of their marriage and their kids?

"I Think I Love My Wife" is a fun concept, but it's not executed well. There's about 15 minutes worth of really good stand-up comic material in the script, but it's rehashed and extended over 94 minutes of screen-time. By doing so the jokes feel very watered-down and the delivery just wasn't very good. It wasn't what I'd expected from a comic genius such as Chris Rock. The entire movie would've been MUCH better as a stand-up routine in my humble opinion. There were really only 2-3 truly funny moments in the story and the rest was just bland and uninspired. To top everything off, "I Think I Love My Wife" has a really bad ending. I'm not going to give away what happens, but suffice to say that there is a musical number between Chris Rock and Gina Torres. Neither of them can sing too well and the song was totally out of place with the rest of the movie (and frankly the song sucked too). Overall, this movie just didn't work (for me) and I would much rather re-watch some of his other movies (like "Dogma" for example) or his stand-up comedy specials than to re-watch this movie.

All in all, I'd give this movie 1.5 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: NONE (Once was more than enough).

Brett's Review

What happens when a successful investment banker never gets any quality time (of the adult variety) with his beautiful, intelligent wife who has her own career, takes care of their two kids and has absolutely no time for her husband? It would seem that Richard Cooper (Chris Rock) has it all, between the daily commute from the suburbs to New York City, the endless business meetings, the kids diapers, and the Wiggles on TV. However there's only one thing on Richards mind: women. The women he sees on the commuter train, the women who walk the streets of Manhattan, the women he fantasizes about in order to alleviate the boredom of his mundane routine life. Happily married to Brenda (Gina Torres), Richard has no intentions of cheating until an old friend, the stunningly beautiful Nikki (Kerry Washington), appears at Richards's door asking for help in landing a job. During lulls in his workday, Richard starts to meet Nikki for late lunches and the bankers' conventional life starts turning upside-down.

This was a quasi-attempt to take a 20 minute stand-up routine and turn it into a 94 minute movie. Even though the movie had some very funny moments and the fact that I like Chris Rock, it just didn't seem to carry all the way through. The acting was marginal, the humor was sometimes good and sometimes OK (the Viagra scene was hilarious). Even knowing the facts about marriage (everyone knows there is hardly any sex in a marriage after the first 18 months) this movie just couldn't deliver. The women were awesome to look at... Washington was simply eye-candy for most of the movie. Overall it just didn't seem to be what I would expect to see from Chris Rock. Maybe it should have been titled "I think someone will love this movie"

Overall Rating: 2 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: Low

Trivia: Charles Stone III was originally slated to direct but dropped out of the project (probably for good reason).
