One of the most infamous movies in history regarding women's portrayal. While I personally found accusations of misogyny overblown (female characters are mostly horrible people, but so are male ones), the movie certainly doesn't pass.
Catherine and Roxy make out in front of the camera, but don't feel a need to talk.
Catherine introduce Nick to Hazel and later say that she'll join her in a moment, but in both cases Hazel doesn't respond.
