Susan, the main character, is a great heroine: she goes from just wanting to get married to the weatherman, to embracing her new superpowers and super size (acquired when she's hit by a meteor).

Guinea disagreed with the rating and said:
Sadly I don't think Susan ever talks to anyone other than her mother (who is bothered about her wedding), men and the monsters.

Ironside said:
She talks with her mother about her battle with the robot. She also speaks with her after being hit by the meteor. Derek is barely mentioned in either conversation. This passes the test.

Yeah her mum says something like "We always knew you would, y'know, stop an alien invasion and save the world" and Susan says "Thanks Mom"
