Ginny disagreed with the rating and said:
In the beginning (and the end) Barbie is talking to her sister Kelly about her drawings.
There are some conversations between Rapunzel and Gothel as well as between Rapunzel and her female dragon friend Penelope.
Rapunzel also rescues the little princess Katrina from a pitfall.
This film clearly passes the test.

Riese disagreed with the rating and said:
Yeah, what Ginny said. And I think there are other characters besides Rapunzel (female ones too!)

Bettina disagreed with the rating and said:
Barbie clearly passed the test... This is ridiculous, who rated this?

Barbie, Kelly, Rapunzel, Gothel, Penelope and the prince's three sisters.

Do they talk? YES~ Barbie and Kelly talk in the beginning about how they should paint, Rapunzel and Gothel talk about chores and Penelope and Rapunzel talking about Rapunzel seeing what is on the other side of the magic wall.

Those are just a few examples and I'm pretty sure Painting, magic walls and chores are not males.

Alexa disagreed with the rating and said:
Yeah, this definitely needs to be revisited. As people have said, there are more than two named female characters and they talk about multiple subjects together.

Barbie/Rapunzel talks to Kelly, Gothel, Penelope, and the three princesses (who also talk to each other as well as Rapunzel) about things other than a man.
