Beyond being a movie that really pays attention to the female/gay male gaze with long, lingering shots of women of diverse body type, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, MMXXL often seems to INTENTIONALLY point out how it's passing the Bechdel test. At several points in Rome's club, she names and talks with her female customers, culminating in the scene with Caroline. Then, when the boys arrive in Myrtle Beach, their entry into the contest is secured when Rome reveals herself to Paris, and they have a particularly intimate greeting all about each other and how Rome taught Paris everything she knows. I think there might be some stuff in Andie MacDowell's house too.
