Although there are several named female characters, none exchange words during the course of the film. Mrs. Barker calls for her daughter, Johanna, but Johanna hides in a trunk instead of answering; and Mrs. Lovett shoos Mrs. Barker away from her store front, but that's about the extent of female interaction.

Which really sucks, considering that the stage show passes the test.
