Passes with flying colors as several conversations pass the test in this movie.

The first scene after the movie trailer for the fictional movie Camp Bloodbath is between Max (it's never said what or if it's short for) and her mother about her mother's audition that she's just completed.

There's also several conversations between Max and the fictional character her mother played during the course of the movie, even though there are some conversations centered around men, there also others which have no mention of men in any context whatsoever.

Other conversations that each help this film pass the test include but are not restricted to:

Tina and Vicki about what she's trying to put into a cassette player is a mobile phone and not to take Vicki's Adderall.

Vicki asking Paula about where to find where the chainsaws are in the camp.

Vicki and Gertie about how they spread vicious rumors about each other at school.

Max and Vicki about why they fell out and stopped being best friends.

Tina and Vicki about how many of her Adderall she's eaten.

To add, Max's mother is named in the film (Amanda Cartwright) as is the fictional character she plays in Camp Bloodbath (Nancy in the film within a film in The Final Girls). Both characters are played by Malin Åkerman.
