I Think I Love My Wife, which held its Los Angeles premiere last night in Hollywood, is Chris Rock's newest baby: He directed, co-wrote, and co-produced the movie, as well as cast himself in the lead role. (Please, oh please, let it be better than Rock's last directing and starring vehicle, the woefully embarassing Head of State.)
Judging from the trailer, the movie looks to have some very funny parts, but this isn't the fall-down-laughing stuff of Rock's stand-up comedy days. In fact, it seems like Rock is trying his hand at a little dramatic acting along with doing his jokester thing. The story revolves around Richard Cooper, an investment banker with a lovely wife and two great kids. Yet, despite his idyllic-seeming life, Cooper finds himself thinking about women constantly. He never considers actually cheating until an old friend appears and turns his steady life upside down.
