According to Tumblr it passes. I haven't seen the movie so I do not know.

It's tricky- there is a conversation between two named women that starts off talking about their past, but it quickly becomes clear that they are speaking of their past in relation to a man (father of one, love interest of the other). The conversation turns into "Don't hook up with my dad, he'll break your heart like he broke my mom's."

Can anyone think of a moment besides that one? Because I'd consider that very thin ice to pass on.

@Mikalhvi... I personally don't think you should be allowed to submit a bechdel rating without having personally seen the movie yourself. It would be like giving a movie a rating on IMDb purely based on the trailer or a review. IMO this post should be deleted entirely until someone who's actually seen the movie submits a rating.

@zoreta... I have not seen the movie but if the line you've quoted IS the only line they say to each other, then it automatically fails. Mentioning her dad is talking about a man.

Do they not have a few lines of dialogue about where Nova's name comes from before they start talking about the dad?
