Actor/comedian Chris Rock directs and stars in this American remake of Eric Rohmer' s classic French comedy Chloe in the Afternoon. Richard Cooper (Rock) is a high-powered investment banker with a beautiful wife and two wonderful children. Though on the surface it would appear that Richard could want nothing more out of life, his thoughts always seem to drift toward sex. Whether it's during his daily commute into the city, his endless barrage of meetings, or even his downtime changing diapers at home, Richard's mind is constantly preoccupied by fantasies about the women he sees on… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rock's breakthrough as a director -- a chance for him to grapple openly with his status as a maturing (but still ostensibly immature) comedian."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out
"Viagra jokes, I-have-a-headache rebuffs, a sequence devoted to the humiliation of buying condoms at a pharmacy...c'mon, Chris, you can do better than that."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Pootie Tang was spikier and funnier"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"I Think I Love My Wife doesn't seem to know which choice to embrace (comedy or drama) and ends up being a hit-and-miss affair."
‑ Stax, IGN Movies
"Rock's humor is once again in its diluted form here."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"One of the film's key revelations is that his resistance to having an affair comes as much from wishing to maintain his lifestyle (the high-paying job, the nice house, the kids) as from loyalty to his wife. Why sharp observations like that one would need"
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"I Think I Love My Wife is first and foremost a sex comedy. But Rock is sharp enough to set it in a world where people of all races share the same dreams and desires -- if not the same real estate."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Rock's so-so temptation comedy earns its R rating."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Buppie infidelity, marital boredom and female temptation on every street corner are the predicaments posed by this Chris Rock directed oddly unromantic fare."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Here's a French sex comedy starring Chris Rock. Yes, really -- Chris Rock."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Rock's version is funnier, blacker, hipper, and sexier, but Rohmer's shows a little more skin."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com
"Very little that's clever, romantic or witty in this formulaic romp."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"A roly-poly CBS sitcom, only with more liberal use of the f-word."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"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"
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"The big problem is, the movie is not funny."
‑ Lori Hoffman, Atlantic City Weekly
