This double feature boasts laughs, drama, and romance.
I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alum Chris Rock writes, directs, and stars in I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE. Rock's film is a remake of the 1972 Eric Rohmer film, CHLOE IN THE AFTERNOON, which explores a married man's common struggle with extramarital temptations. Richard Cooper (Rock) has it all: a beautiful wife, Brenda (Gina Torres); adorable kids; a successful investment banking career--and complete boredom! He has become obsessed with other women, and a visit from an old friend's former flame, sexy and flirtatious Nikki (Kerry Washington), has him staring the possibility of infidelity in the face. Nikki pursues a friendship that provides Richard some much-needed excitement, but also lands him in all kinds of trouble. He jeopardizes his reputation at work, causes fights at home, and rapidly loses sight of what he has built his life around. At some point he must choose between his affair-fantasy and remaining the faithful husband and father he's always been.
WAITING TO EXHALE: Four African American women commiserate about the men in their lives after one of them is abandoned by her philandering husband. Released in 1995, the film was a well-received adaptation of Terry McMillan's best-selling 1992 novel.
