I have watched both versions of this film, and -eventhough I liked the original version- I found this one even funnier than the original. I am not going to go into technic details because I simply like watching movies, and I don't sit to watch them with a checklist on hand for what is in excess, or is missing. I liked the acting, the adaption of the theme (taking into account the cultural differences), the costumes and the music in it.

In all honesty, I can't say I was really clamoring for a remake of Nancy Meyers' "What Women Want." The original, made over ten years ago, starred Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt and was a fitfully funny exercise in slapstick mayhem and opposites attract romance. It seemed an unlikely choice for writer/director Chen Daming (who also takes a small cameo in the film) to adapt, but I guess the world needs love too. Originally titled "I Know A Woman's Heart," the DVD release has the good sense to reattach the familiar "What Women Want" moniker to drive interest in the international distribution. After all, familiarity with the original movie certainly can't hurt. For my part, I don't really see any need or reason to reinterpret the Gibson version. While popular and amusing enough, it's hardly the gold standard in the American romantic comedy genre. However, that being said, if you are going forward with the idea--at least this remake had the smarts to attach two of the most appealing matinee stars possible. Frankly, I'd watch Andy Lau and Gong Li in just about anything, so cast together--this becomes a no-brainer.

Lau plays an aging lothario, an advertising executive getting by on his charm and insincerity. While he thinks he has everyone enamored by his winning ways, he has little idea what women really think of him. Li enters the scene as his new boss and rival, and the two instantly clash in some expected comic set-ups. Feeling that the agency needs to get in touch with female consumers, Li has the brilliant notion for the male employees to try an assortment of feminine products to make them more aware of their intended audience.

I rent this movie for my Chinese Language class. The movie is funny, only one thing not good enough is the English subtitle, it didn't translator all sentence when they talk.
