I barely remember the dialog in this movie, but luckily IMDB has this quote

Kathy: A lot of magical things have happened since you walked through those doors.
Karen: Amen.
Kathy: My menstrual cycle started back up again. And I don't even have a uterus. I mean I have it... it's in a jar. It's actually in the room that you're staying in.

So while gross, passes.

A friend of mine put this on. i dont know why i didnt contest. I guess I was curious what straight white yuppie types (sorry for the generalization!) like to watch Awful movie although there were some funny moments. In a nutshell it stereo-typed "others," those who don't fit into the box of social norms (vegans, socialists/anarchists, artists), and made light of their convictions. An example would be the old hippie/anarchist who would leave the commune each Sunday to get his fix of meat. As if all vegans really, deep down want to eat meat. Get real. Anyway, there was more, but then I'd have to write a proper essay. Oh ya, and in the end the young white guy is the hero. How original.

And your review has what to do with the parameters of the Bechdel Test for gender bias, exactly?
