the protagonist's son has a wife and two very young daughters who have names. IF you count the daughters (female but not women), you could pass the movie on technicalities.. they do have brief exchanges from time to time, like "wake up, sweetie" and "get ready girls", etc. However, all the exchanges in the entire movie between female characters, including the ones about men, wouldn't add up to 30 seconds, much less 60... and I tend to agree with Anita Sarkeesian on this one.. if you drop your junior mints on the ground and miss the dialogue, it's probably a good indicator that the movie lacks female presence: which is the point of the test to begin with.
