This movie passes the test quite early on. Carrie (a very important character later on, not saying who so I don't spoil anything) and her friend Michelle are walking through the rain, complaining about it raining, and making fun of each other for being scared. No man is mentioned at all during this exchange. If I recall correctly, there are a few other conversations between females, but they mostly center around Batman and/or the Joker. This movie is based on the First half of a comic series/novel of the same name, and part 2 will be, obviously, the second half. I'm not holding out much hope that part 2 will pass, from my memory of the comic, but we will see!
