Yzma (the classical Disney villain) and Chicha (the wife of the "hero", Pacha) talk both about Pacha and about... Well, a doorknob. You can imagine it wasn't a real deep going conversation.

Talking about the doorknob counts, but talking about Pacha does not. Not for a 3/3.

Gaby disagreed with the rating and said:
I wish this could pass, but even though Chicha and Chaca (her daughter) have names in the credits, they're never used during the course of the film.

While this really is a great movie, and there are several conversations between two women that are not about men, Yzma is the only named female character, not counting the credits.

It doesn't count to name the women after the movie is over. This movie doesn't pass any of the tests.
