Obviously, as the plot revolves around Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks) marooned alone on a south seas island, there are few opportunities for female characters to interact. The main female character, and love interest for Noland is Kelly (Helen Hunt). There are a couple of other named female characters (e.g. a pilot, Gwen) but there are no interactions between women, except for a brief conversation at a Christmas dinner scene, but this involves Kelly being teased about her relationship with Chuck. So the film just passes the first test.

If the two women at the party talk about the main character, they are indeed talking, right? So the film passes two of three points.
