The film has 3 females being present for more than 1 minute:
-The ugly, nerdlike shrink-computer program (Dr. shrink-rom played by Tilda Swinton),
- the sexy prostitute ("Bainsley" played by Mélanie Thierry)
- the sexy pizza delivery girl

Since Dr. Shrink-Rom is not a real name I've rated the movie "no two named female characters".

Women never talk to each other throughout the movie and womens sole purpose is to serve male sexual and emotional needs. The only main female character, Bainsley, has no real personality or motivation but is reduced to be sexy, empathatic and emotionally weak ("please run away with me"-scene)
