Two women, one barely named, they never talk.

Link Correon disagreed with the rating and said:
There are six women of note in the film:

Kevin Flynn's Mother / Sam Flynn's Grandmother - who never sees another woman

Quorra - who briefly sees a woman during a bar fight

Four women put Sam's armor on him in a short pseudo-sexy scene. One appears later in the bar fight, while another says one line to her: "There's something different about this one."

This movie barely rates a 2 - two women talk about the 'savior' man, Sam.

Another Siren does talk to Gem, which is the only instance of one woman talking to another, but she only says one line about Sam. There is no conversation between the two.

to dude - Only one of the women speaking to each other is given a name and it is Gem. So it passes the part of the test that two women talk, but not the part they both have names. Or that they talk about something other than man. (1/3)
