ShawmK disagreed with the rating and said:
Technically, this film (sort of) passes. Although Commander Bowman is the only female character, she does spend a big chunk of the film interacting with the ship's onboard computer, Lucille. The computer's voice is female, and frequently responds to Commander Bowman; they have lengthy technical conversations about repairing the ship.

Whether this counts as a pass depends on whether one counts an Artificial Intelligence computer program as a "gendered" character. At least they don't spend the whole time discussing men.
