Kirkee disagreed with the rating and said:
There are three female characters, Catwoman, Ice Princess and Poodle Lady. They never speak to each other as far as I know. Although is hinted that Catwoman and Ice Princess talked to each other about letting Princess go the conversation itself happened offscreen.

Carl disagreed with the rating and said:
I'm not sure 'The Ice Princess' counts as a named character - it seems to me that her character is a model portaying a city mascot, rather than that being her actual title - and I feel strongly that 'Poodle Lady' does not, but there is another female character who introduces herself to the penguin as 'Jen' so I think this movie does pass the first test.

The review is correct, it passes none of the test. Ice Princess and Poodle Lady are not NAMES. There is no on-screen conversation between female characters.

Catwoman speaks to a woman she saves from a mugger but it's about "always waiting for some Batman" to save you.

Does catwomans mum count? I mean they do kind of have a conversation through a voice message but I may be wrong
