Jason disagreed with the rating and said:
This movie has 3 named characters. Skyler, Cathy, and Kristen(?), though Kristen's name is barely comprehensible the one time it's spoken, and Cathy only has 2 lines exchanging sexual insults with Ben Affleck's character. It's in the bar scene 5 minutes into the movie. Here's the dialogue at the beginning of the scene:

Hi, Will.
Kristen, how you doin'?
I'm alright.
I didn't get on Cathy last night.
No? Why not?
I don't know...Cathy! Why didn't you give me none of that nasty little hoochie-woochie you usually throw at me?
Aw, fuck you, and your Irish curse, Chuckie!

The only two women with any relevance to the plot are Skylar and Sean's wife Nancy, who is already dead before the start of the story.
