Anything with a lot of stunts and expolisions, they like Rambo movies and Bond movies, Space Alien movies etc. I watch movies with Chinese people and they like to think the movies are good as well. They know what a stupid, it sucks movie is!

I read somewhere that Avatar was so popular the government took it out of lots of cinemas and replaced it with some locally made film.

Garfield 2 and Transformers 2 were the two top grossers last time I checked, though that was a while ago. Of course, not much foreign makes it to the theatres. I suspect more American movies are watched on DVD and youku.

In general, it seems teen comedies, action movies and dramas do the best, which makes sense as those genres tend to be broad enough that cultural differences don't get in the way. Just like Kung fu, later-day Stephen Chow and weepy, heavily-visual art films tend to cross over more the other way.

Anything American with a big budget drives them crazy.

I thought Titanic was super popular all over Asia? I know it's old, but a lot of people seem to know that one.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
