Only two named women in the entire film and at no point do they meet.

Actually there are three named characters. (I'm not good with names and I'm not going to look them up, but I'm fairly sure all three had names in the film.)

JGL's character has a girlfriend in the film who he has a fairly long conversation with (and would definitely have said her name at some point). Emily Blunt plays a central role. Bruce Willis' character has a girlfriend in the future who he talks about a fair bit. All three are named, but none of them ever meet.

Actually, four women. Don't know if the wife ever gets a name (she's certainly not allowed to speak) but you're forgetting Beatrice. The waitress.

It's actually four named women: The prostitute, the mother, the dead wife and the waitress at the diner (Beatrix).

The film still fails.

Mike disagreed with the rating and said:
Four named women: Suzie the prostitute, Sara the mom, Beatrix the waitress, and... wait for it, Jen the other waitress (who we never actually see) - Bruce Willis' wife is never named.
