''I Think I Love My Wife'' is a romantic comedy film starring Chris Rock, based on the French film ''Chloe In The Afternoon''.

Rock plays Richard Cooper, a New York executive with an ostensibly perfect life. Despite his loving wife Brenda (played by Gina Torres) and two children, Richard is bored with his sexless marriage. Enter [[FemmeFatale Nikki Tru]] (played by Kerry Washington), an old friend who wants to reconnect. Faced with Nikki's youth and sensuality, Richard starts to have a crisis of fidelity with regards to his comparatively mundane home life. Their [[ShesNotMygirlfriend friendship]] seems innocent enough to Richard, but the last man to date Nikki wound up [[NoodleIncident psychologically obliterated]] by the experience. Will Richard be next?
