Not only does this pass the Bechdel (pick any two characters talking about bake sales, picking up kids, or the pressure of being a good mom), but it fails the Reverse Bechdel Test.

The closest it comes there is when Mike fist-bumps Dylan after Amy tells him about his school issues. There are only a handful of movies that achieve a Reverse Bechdel Test failure (and I think this and Ghostbusters achieve it this year).

The movie was inappropriate at times, but mostly hilarious en route to an easy pass.

This movie over 10 named female characters that I can remember. The main characters are Amy, Kiki, Carla, Gwendolyn, Stacy, and Vicky. The first conversation that some of the moms have is about work and their kids they don't mention any men. There are also several conversations between the moms throughout the movie that are not about men.

caitlin disagreed with the rating and said:
I feel that there is more proof to passing the bechdel test rather than the reverse.
