Claire said:
Two women (the protagonist and a casting agent) have a scene where they talk about casting. The protagonist also talks with her sisters, but often for advice about her friendships with/taste in men.

I'm not sure the casting director would be considered a named character. what are others' thoughts?

Valentina disagreed with the rating and said:
The scene with the casting agent still has Gary in it, and he even told Alana what to answer beforehand / interrupts her to make her change her answer. The scene with the sister is indeed talking about men, so according to me it doesn't pass the test at all.

I think the movie fails this test. It is a stretch that the agent is a named character. Scenes with sister are about men.

The casting agents name is Mary Grady, which makes the rating hold

I agree with Jody. The rating is correct: Licorice Pizza passes the Bechdel test. It does not matter if a male character is present in a scene where two female characters talk -- that is not one of the three criteria.
