This Wong Kar-Wi film loosely shares and continues the story from Days of Being Wild and In the Mood for Love. There are multiple, prominent female characters with names, but they do not interact with one another.

The film adaptation of the musical features several prominent female characters with names, including the lead, Aunt Mame, played by Lucille Ball. Her comical falling out and reconciliations with her actress friend Vera Charles (Bea Arthur), encouragement of the mousey Agnes Gooch (Jane Connell) to get out and live life, and breaking through to her in-laws, Mother Burnside (Lucille Benson) and Cousin Fan (Ruth McDevitt), and many more all seal this movie as a clear pass.

Juanfraner disagreed with the rating and said:
The second comment of luminum is not about this film. The characters he or she describes are definitely not from 2046.

In 2046 there's no interaction between the various female characters, as his/her first comment states.

Rating should be 1/3.
