This latest contribution to the booming subgenre of buppie relationship comedies arrives well stocked with sitcom stereotypes: A horny suburban dad (Chris Rock) is tempted to stray with a man-eating vixen (Kerry Washington) when his wife (Gina Torres) stops putting out.

EXTRAS Lots of 'em, including some delicious bloopers of Rock riffing on granny panties. C
