Only three women talk at all in this movie. I thought it was two, but I remembered that a women in a car that blows up says something right before it explodes.

this movie features a few leading men and only one leading woman. This movie is mostly about a government spy crew (similar to CIA) that is made up of only men...not sure why they couldn't add a woman, or two, to the government spy crew.

Why does it matter if there's a woman in the movie or not though? Like why is this test even necessary? Just don't watch it if you don't like it.

Beep, the test is a simplistic way to evaluate if a movie is sexist or not. If you think about it, two women talking about something other than a man should be extremely easy to see, however, many movies don't accomplish it. Is not a serious test in any way, just a curious way to reflect on Hollywood's tendencies when wrtiting for women.

The movie only has one named female character in it, and she never speaks to another woman.

Rosie disagreed with the rating and said:
I think this is passed 1 of 3. There’s Ilsa the British spy and then Ethan’s Wife Julia is also named and appears towards the end to help disarm the bomb. They whisper something to each other at the end but there’s no idea what they say or actual conversation also they’re almost definitely talking about Ethan…

So definitely 1of3
