I Think I Love My Wife (2007)

This is Chris Rock's directorial debut. I hope he's learned from his mistakes and directs more in the future.

The film centers on a man who is bored with his marriage, particularly with his non-existent sex life. A woman enters his office and stirs the fantasy of adultery. The fact that this is a serious drama should have suggested to Rock (writer/director/star) that some outlandish comedic routines would be out of place. The suggestion was missed.

Fortunately, there is still some real value to the story, remnants of a classic French film Chloë in the Afternoons. We get at the heart of temptation and the real fruit of choosing to follow forbidden urges.

The acting in the film is genuinely good; there are a couple very tense moments that propel the film. Afterwards, you are not too affected because of the distracting stunts.

Truth: All that glitters is not gold.
