meera disagreed with the rating and said:
I don't know if this film passes number 3.It has more than two female characters and they talk to each other. The first instance seems way too short to pass, it was less than sixty seconds and the next one Belinda mentions a man saying her and Landon are over. I haven't seen the movie in a while though so I could be wrong.

I also disagree with the rating. I think the conversations are too short and the longer one begins with talk about Landon (the ex). I have watched this recently.
