There are only two speaking female characters but only one is named. It takes over 20 minutes for one of them to speak.

This passes at least the first test. Both Emma and Leni have names that are mentioned in dialogue when those characters are addressed. There is at least one more woman with a name according to the credits, but I don't think it is ever actually used.

April Smith disagreed with the rating and said:
"Named" doesn't describe the vacuousness of the female characers. The main female character says virtually nothing throughout the film and is backround to the macho leads.
