Chris Rock directs himself, Kerry Washington and Gina Torres in this unromantic comedy where a bored husband considers an affair with the blast from the past who keeps turning up at his office needing things and wanting him.
Chris Rock and Louis CK rewrite this remake of a French arthouse classic: Chloe In the Afternoon. You can see their stand-up personalities in a lot of the funnier moments. You can also see it as the work of a pair of men whose real life marriages will soon end in divorce. Borderline misogynistic at times but considering how unlikeable ALL the characters are, maybe it is more appropriate to say the work of at least one and half misanthropes. Still there are some chuckles and a few off the wall moments that herald CK’s later talent for hard whimsy.
