I Think I Love My Wife

I Think I Love My Wife is an interesting look at marriage, infidelity and male / female friendships. A remake of the French film, Chloe in the Afternoon, this modern adaptation says Chris Rock all over. His use of humor, race, language, sex and parody are effective. At times, it seemed like I was seeing Rock's stand-up, played out in the scenes of the film. I was very entertained.

Chris Rock for President! I am going to get out this week and see this movie. I really enjoy Chris Rock so this film should prove to be enjoyable based on what you've said.

I saw the movie yesterday. I really enjoyed the movie. I think the movie accomplished its goal...it made me think and reflect.

I don't want to give up too much of what happens but I have many more thoughts about this movie.

Glad you liked it. There is alot more to the film than I expected too. I think it had a lot to say about relationships.

I loved the line...They say life is short. They're wrong. Life is long and you have to live with every decision you make...

This film cemented for me that Chris Rock is a modern day Aesop. He's not afraid to tackle subjects from racism to marriage and what it all really means.

That is a brutally honest line, I liked it to. Rock tends to say things we think. His observational style can really make you think.
