Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

In a few scenes, Rock is every bit as funny as his (often racy) stand-up material. But despite the occasional laugh-out-loud moments, I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE is never as consistently edgy or witty as the comedian's tightly written routines. There are a few controversial comments (apparently if you have too much Motown and R&B on your iPod, you have "n----r ears") and original songs (like the rap "F--k the Cracker") -- but not the smart observational humor viewers might expect.

While Rock is definitely an A-list comedian, there's not much here that's on a par with the movie's original source, cerebral French New Wave classic Chloe in the Afternoon.
