Well, you get no argument from me that the movie is a face down fail. But I still think that is something that should be taken up with Tolkien and not Peter Jackson or Fran Walsh.
For this movie to pass the test even more drastic changes would need to be made to the story. Such as inventing another additional character or changing the gender of an established one.
Tauriel also qualifies as a bad ass that is also the object of affection of two men. She wasn't exactly an ornamental character.
Possibly worth noting: A lot of people are going to say this isn't an issue at all because JRR Tolkien's <I>Hobbit</I> doesn't have any significant female characters. But half of this movie doesn't come from Tolkien, and several major plotlines and characters were invented to give the film more romance, drama, and battle scenes, so "There aren't any conversations between women in the original" is no excuse.
