Ugh, this film was so disappointing on so many levels. There's only really one substantive female character, and she's constantly demeaned by her husband because he feels inadequate. I agree with the rating.

But the joke is that she is beautiful, sexy, intelligent and well-appointed and he doesn't deserve her so he covers by demeaning her. They even state that in the script.

And yes, there are more than two female characters, as stated already.

There are definitely more than 2 named women characters. Should at very least be 1/3.

There are more than two women in the film (although other than the wife none have more than a few lines.) However they don't speak to each other about anything other than a man.

Allen calls his mother-in-law Mama Ramos, and that's how she's listed on IMDB. If you consider her a named character, she and Sheila talk to each other about him and this would be a 2/3. At the least, this should definitely be 1/3, as previously mentioned and explained several times.
