Riley Calaby said:
There are two named female characters: both are the girlfriends of major male characters. At no point do they speak to one another. At one point one of the named female characters speaks to an unnamed female character, saying ‘Thanks’. These are the only three female characters in the film to speak.

Sara disagreed with the rating and said:
There are 3 named characters in the movie - Toni, Erica, and Julie. They don't talk to each other too much, but at the beginning of the movie, Erica says "Toni, we're over here", to Toni. Julie also asks Toni if she could go grab some ice when she's stitching up a cut on someone else. Toni yells "come on!" to Erica when they're alone in a building and running after being spotted in the window.
