In this contemporary retelling of director Eric Rohmer's cerebral 1972 film Chloe in the Afternoon, Chris Rock stars as Richard Cooper, a happily married man who can't seem to stop fantasizing about other women. But Richard finds his feelings for his wife, Brenda (Gina Torres), are truly put to the test when a friend's former paramour (Kerry Washington) enters the picture and puts the moves on him.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, like Chris Rock's popular stand-up routines (think HBO, not Saturday Night Live), this comedy contains graphic sexual banter and innuendo. Rock plays a successful, sex-starved husband who fantasizes about every attractive woman who passes by. When a super-sexy beauty from his past shows up with come-hither looks, he obsesses about her availability. The temptation to commit adultery -- even when depicted by a usually hilarious comedian like Rock -- isn't exactly kid- or teen-friendly material. There's no actual sex, but Rock's character definitely has sex on the brain. And he swears up a storm, too.

Sexual Content

Although there's very little actual sex -- just one scene of foreplay when the camera lingers on a woman in a bra and thong panties -- there's plenty of sexual banter: "I can't wait to suck your d--k," "Are you still f--king?," "She's like a work of art I'd like to mount," etc.


Richard gets a thorough beat-down from Nikki's thuggish ex-boyfriend.


Do you even have to wonder? Like Rock's stand-up routine, the movie has plenty of profanity, from racial terms like the "N" word and "cracker" to dozens of "f--k"s and its derivatives. There's also a lot of sex talk, like "d--k" and "p---y."

Social Behavior

Richard spends most of the film objectifying women -- from beautiful passengers on the commuter train to cleavage-baring sales clerks and waitresses. Every beautiful woman is seen as a tease, flaunting her obvious sexuality -- except, of course, for Brenda. Nikki says that Richard has "n----r ears," because he listens to songs by black musicians.


More product placements than usual: Chopard watches, Porsche convertible, Volvo station wagon, iPods, and Saks Fifth Avenue, to name just a few. And, of course, Viagra.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Viagra might as well have received its own film credit since it's so heavily featured as the drug of choice for George and, later, Richard. Nikki also smokes incessantly, even in smoke-free places, and Richard gets drunk at a Manhattan nightclub. Two couples have wine at dinner.
