This movie is pretty much centered on men, but it has three named, important characters: Charlotte, Ellen and Anita.

While they invariably end up talking about men, Ellen and Anita share some dialog around housekeeping, habits and Florida itself. It's not much, but I believe it is enough for a pass, since it actually helps set background information between character relationships and setting.
