The two named female characters only talk to each other about men. Glenda Baker's character Gina doesn't talk about anything besides men, ever. The closest the film gets to passing the bechdel test is in a scene when the woman who plays one of the villains, who is named in the credits (probably because the film is based on a novel) but who is not named in the movie, has a -30 second interaction with the main character, not about a man. But because she is an unnamed minor character, and because the bit is not a conversation so much as a very brief exchange, it clearly doesn't count. 2/3
