This film passes when Hughs meets Katherine Hepburn's family. The women in the family talk to one another about politics, money and their food.

I agree with the rating and disagree with the comment. The scene at the family gathering is meant to be irrelevant chatter that annoys Hughes. While technically women talk to each other (with only Kate Hepburn and "her mother" are named), it is just a random throwaway and does nothing for the plot.
