Ann and Les think that I Think I Love My Wife (2007) could have been a much better movie than it was. While both admire the talent of Chris Rock, who wrote, directed, and produced this movie, they don't think he put it to the best use in this film. Ann thinks it all would have been alright if he had toned down the language. Les agreed that the language was over-the-top but he doesn't think just taking out certain words would have fixed the tacky nature of the whole film. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends another film about a man who wants to have an affair and, along the way, changed the way men talk about women. It's called simply 10 (1979.) In this comedy, Dudley Moore plays a man who becomes obsessed with the newly married daughter of his dentist and follows her on her honeymoon. The unsuspecting woman's role offered the world our introduction to Bo Derek. Moore's wife was played by the sensible Julie Andrews who, at the time, was married to director Blake Edwards. Though most people remember this film for things other than the humor, it was a funny movie. Ann also recommends a film about a married man, played by Tom Ewell, who fantasizes about an affair with his upstairs neighbor, played by Marilyn Monroe. This film by director Billy Wilder is best known for the poster that has Monroe in a billowing white dress standing over a NY subway grate as she advertises her film The Seven Year Itch (1955.)
