Although the film passes the test, the sequence when the women talk is very short.
Still, I found the film very different in portraying women. It was not stereotypical at all. All the women were shown as brave in fighting the aliens and not as frightend girls wo had to be saved by the men.

jonathan disagreed with the rating and said:
The only women who speak to each other about something other than a man are Sam and an older neighbor when they talk about fireworks very briefly. But the neighbor is not named in the film - so the film fails the 3rd test.

The girls actually speak about something other than moses though as you might expect, most of the conversation is about the protagonists and the aliens they have lured. But the old neighbour is named ("Margaret").

The girls all have names. They talk to each other about random stuff (although only in scenes that are interrupted by the "main" action of the film) and Sam and the girls have a conversation about the reality of the alien threat.
