Chris and his wife, Malaak, have been married for 10 years and have two daughters, Lola and Zahra. Chris says he added small, real-life details of his family life to the film. "I put it in some of the flavoring of the movie, like watching The Wiggles on TV and checking to see if there's any black kids at the play dates."
Malaak says she's often asked if I Think I Love My Wife is based on her marriage. It isn't, she says. "It's a French remake of a movie, but you do see bits and pieces of our marriage, for sure, and our life," she says. "You know, certain things don't happen when they should happen when you have toddlers in the house."
