  1. As uneven as I Think I Love My Wife often is, it still has an emotional resonance lacking in most films about relationships. By dealing with temptation in even a quasi-realistic way, it affirms that, like comedy, monogamy is hard.
  2. 70
    Mr. Rock has not only done his best work as a director and screenwriter but has also made an unusually insightful and funny mainstream American movie about the predicaments of modern marriage.
  3. The results fall short of the grown-up comedy about seven-year itches it could've been, asking the Hamlet-like question: to scratch or not to scratch?
  4. 50
    If you're looking for Rock's trademark smart-ass wit, you'll want to look somewhere else. Likewise when it comes to a movie with something fresh to say about the balancing act that is wedded bliss.

    50
    The movie, full of wan gags and tedious situations, is directed blandly by Rock.
  6. 50
    The movie, instead, is a work of giddy self-sabotage that seems determined to matter and not matter at the same time.
  7. 25
    Rock appears to have edited I Think I Love My Wife with a roulette wheel.

    I gave this movie a 10 because it hits home. the truth is no one will understand this movie enless they are in the same position. I bet any I gave this movie a 10 because it hits home. the truth is no one will understand this movie enless they are in the same position. I bet any man who is in a relationship for atleast 5 years will love this movie. I dont really belive it was meant to be a comedy. Perhaps it was more of a justification in social history. The only sad part is, it truly shows all women how the average man truly feels. Period.... on point like no other. You can hate all u want on the skills as a "film" and perhaps i just googled the wrong critic page.. the truth is, ive seen this movie with many people now, ive gotten extremely mixed reviews. But the bottom line is, this movie will either relate like no other, or just seem like a stupid asshole of a guy type of movie....but like i said, if you are a man in a relationship, probubly longer than 5 years, or have been in one like that, this one is gonnna hit home like no other, with a little Chris Rock twist to it.

One of the most comedic, insightful movies of the new year post-Oscars, I loved every aspect of it and how it brought us a dark, new gritty angle, albeit more of a comedy version. Hands down one of the best of the year, along with the 300. Expand

    I think of Chris Rock as a funny man, but this is not his best work. With great female acting and a generally good script, this movie has I think of Chris Rock as a funny man, but this is not his best work. With great female acting and a generally good script, this movie has something to work with. Instead it delivers a very disappointing blur that comes up empty and endless. The film feels like it is 4 hours and very repetitive. Rock and his wife keep running into problems, and all you can do is watch the dull character struggle between a family or cheaters choice. It is a unoriginal comedy about something that has already been done before. The film essentially takes one idea, of which the title describes, and throws it upside down, restating it over and over with bad jokes and long dialogue. The good script and decent acting soon becomes dull when you realize that the movie always seems out of place. Even the small details like where the conversation occurs and the fact that a black persons house would never look the way Rock's does start to bother you as you focus less on the movie and more on how boring it really is.

    Mr. Rock takes on having everything to do with a movie he can. It seems, though, that he tries to hard to be a multi-talented man instead of Mr. Rock takes on having everything to do with a movie he can. It seems, though, that he tries to hard to be a multi-talented man instead of focusing on making a good comedy-romance-drama. It falls flat, despite some potential. It contains little plot and little progress in its conflict and character development and its jokes just do not work very well. Expand
