This is up on Netflix as a movie, but it's actually the pilot for an awesome TV show about parallel Earths that hasn't been made (yet?).

It passes because (SPOILER ALERT!) in the closing scene, Polly turns out to be three separate versions of Polly traveling together and pretending to be one person. They have a brief exchange as to who'll be the "active" Polly for this Earth.

There may be exchanges between Polly and Beatrix that aren't about men but I don't recall. At least it definitely passes based on this exchange that I do remember.
