Film: I Think I Love My Wife

Opened: March 16, 2007

Directed by: Chris Rock

Starring: Chris Rock, Kerry Washington, Gina Torres, Steve Buscemi, Edward Hermann, Michael Kenneth Williams, Orlando Jones, Stephen A. Smith, Wendell Pierce, Roz Ryan, Christina Vidal & Eliza Coupe

While it’s supposed to be a comedy, I Think I Love My Wife is a disgusting, unfunny attack on married life.

Richard Cooper (Chris Rock) has been married to his wife Brenda (Gina Torres) for eight years. They have two kids and are in a rut with their sex life. A blast from his past, Nikki Tru (Kerry Washington) reenters Richard’s life and has him thinking immoral thoughts.

The worst part about this film is that both Torres and Washington play awfully stereotyped female roles that have zero depth to them. Brenda is portrayed as old and mean, while Nikki is young and flirtatious. They’re both clearly a man’s point of view of what he doesn’t want and what he does.

Rock’s jokes are crude and fall short making his character unlikable and unredeemable.

Final say: Nothing to love here. ★☆☆☆☆
