Were they watching the same movie?

From Michael Janusonis in Friday's ProJo:

Well, maybe [Chris] Rock's Americanized version would seem lighter and brighter and more knowing if it had been performed in French. Despite a scattering of funny bits here and there near the start, I Think I Love My Wife quickly devolves into a tedious exercise that's dead in the water.

And from A.O. Scott in Friday's New York Times:

In attempting to synthesize the later French New Wave of the late 1960s and early '70s with the upscale African-American comedies that flourished in Hollywood in the late 1990s, Mr. Rock has not only done his best work as a director and screenwriter but has also made an unusually insightful and funny mainstream American movie about the predicaments of modern marriage.
