Consensus: Chris Rock's comedic instincts are muted and the female characters are unsatisfactorily drawn in this uneven sex farce/domestic drama mashup.

Ben Kenigsberg
Time Out

Rock's breakthrough as a director -- a chance for him to grapple openly with his status as a maturing (but still ostensibly immature) comedian.

Joshua Rothkopf
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.

Just imagine how much more authentic, topical and engaging this would be if Rock made this film in 2015 instead of eight years earlier.

Scott Tobias

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

Stephanie Zacharek

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.

Jonathan F. Richards

Rock's version is funnier, blacker, hipper, and sexier, but Rohmer's shows a little more skin.

Very little that's clever, romantic or witty in this formulaic romp.

Sandie Angulo Chen
Common Sense Media

Rock's so-so temptation comedy earns its R rating.

Okay movie to watch on tv. Had a few funny moments, mostly I was cringing over how stupid this guy was, while at the same time could understand why he was bored… More

The film is good for the vast majority. It's a rather mature critique of marriage that suggests perhaps marriage isn't for humans. Rock plays a hard… More

I must agree that the women's charactors were thinly drawn, but Chris' charactor had depth and a believablility that runs deeper than most comedies. I… More
