Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps (German: Warum Männer nicht zuhören und Frauen schlecht einparken, literally "... women park badly") is a 2007 German comedy film directed by Leander Haußmann.


The successful lawyer and ladies' man Jan (Benno Fürmann) observes through a window of his apartment, how a car scrapes his red convertible. The driver is the equally successful publishing assistant Katrin (Jessica Schwarz). Despite initial mutual accusations, the two soon become a couple. Then the pregnant couple Rüdiger (Jan's brother) and Melanie are introduced. Subsequently, different hypotheses explaining the behavior of men and women are offered.
