What Women Want
Chauvinistic advertising executive Zigang Sun is not known as a good husband, a good father or a good son.
None of this bothers Zigang, since he’s focused entirely on his expected promotion to creative director. However, that opportunity disappears when his firm instead hires the female executive of a rival agency, Yilong Li, to develop campaigns targeted toward women. When Zigang attempts to understand the opposite sex to compete with Yilong, a comic twist of fate gives him the ability to hear what women are thinking. While his new power makes him an expert on women and helps advance his career, it also leads him toward a relationship with his once-office-rival Yilong, and changes his outlook on what’s important in life and love.
What Women Want is a 2011 Chinese-Hong Kong romantic action comedy film remake of the 2000 American film of the same name. The film stars Andy Lau and Gong Li. What Women Want was released in China on the 3 February 2011, the first day of Chinese New Year.
