Alex disagreed with the rating and said:
I may be wrong since I'm not sure if the characters are named, but two women talk about having sex with men early on in the movie. That would be a 2/3 pass, if the characters are named.

Chandler Gloyd disagreed with the rating and said:
Those two women do have names (Vizinha and Ceara) and I would certainly consider talking about warming up a banana and sticking up your vagina something besides a man.

"Vizinha" is not a name or a slang, it means "neighbor" in portuguese. As in "Ceara's neighbor". And they are talking about Paraíba, Ceará's husband and how HE does not satisfy her in bed.

In time, I watched the movie last night and Ceara's name is only stated at the credits, not in the actual movie.
