Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Boring married life ... and then Temptation
3 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

... And, it's Chris Rock at center. The movie was amusing to watch. There are some good laugh-out-loud moments, but it was mostly interesting because of his edgy narration throughout the movie. We hear his inner thoughts and clever wit - and we wait to see if he (a married man) will eventually give in to the endless temptation of a female friend.

Here's the setup: Rock plays a banker who has an effectively empty marriage ... his wife is focused on raising their two kids and is at the point of shunning any kind of physical intimacy. Out of the blue, a female friend from his past shows up and is pretty much everything his wife is not ... he can never say 'no' to meeting her, but where is it leading? Watching Chris kind of narrate his thoughts and feelings was fun to watch. All the other characters are kind of 1-dimensional, but they are so well acted, they are interesting to watch.

Whether or not you're a Chris Rock fan, this movie is pretty good based on its own merits: it's funny and insightful.
