Brenda wears comfortable, cotton panties; Nikki wears sheer, lacy thongs. Richard Cooper is in the middle, with a good job in Manhattan, a house in the suburbs, and two cute children with Brenda, his intelligent, good-looking wife who's a teacher. But there's no sex in this seven-year marriage, so Richard's bored. Into the mix walks Nikki, a sexy, sassy, single friend he's not seen in years. Nikki has problems and finds a reason to stop at his office every day. He tries to help, they have some fun, and he doesn't mention Nikki to Brenda. His work and reputation suffer. Is he about to scratch the seven year itch? What choices does Richard have? Written by
The firm that Chris Rock works for is called Pupkin and Langford. This is an homage to the Jerry Lewis/Robert DeNiro movie "The King of Comedy" where DeNiro played Ruppert Pupkin and Lewis played Jerry Langford. See more »
Richard Cooper's (Chris Rock's) arm position between shots in the ambulance: At first we see a paramedic trying to hold Rock down as the other paramedic prepares to operate on him and Rock's arms up trying to struggle with him. In the next shot, his arms are down by his sides with no struggle, then immediately in the next shot he is being held down by that same paramedic and has his arms up struggling once again. See more »

Poor script helped by a by the numbers script sink a remake of a near classic
Chris Rock remakes Chloe in the Afternoon. Man who's wife ignores him is put to the test by a free spirit ex-girlfriend.
If you can get past the competent but clichéd way the film is put together (clearly some one was following the numbers) you'll have to deal with a completely miscast cast who come off as abrasive rather than charming. Even the reliable Steve Buscemi grates on your nerves. The real problem and the thing that sinks this film is the script written by Rock and Lewis CK. I'm guessing it might have worked in better hands but here the gentle sex farce of the original is just smutty and vulgar.
An example of how not to put a movie together.
