There are multiple female characters, but they rarely talk to one another. I think it passes because one of the female characters compliments other female characters at the bar. However, the compliment is done only to get the guys a date. Therefore, it is a little questionable.

She compliments the woman and then directly proceeds to mention the man standing beside her who is the reason they engage in conversation in the first place. This woman also is GIVEN a name though it is not remembered, I doubt even you remember it. I believe the test requires the characters not be walk ins.

this film was a waste of our time and was predominantly degrading to women. The meagre attempts of all the male characters to make up for their deplorable actions is insulting to the entire female race.
