Lisa and Emily are great friends but they only talk about Michael and his book.

Andrea disagreed with the rating and said:
Before Michael encounters either Lisa or Emily, he switches on the TV and watches a black and white movie. In it, two women are conversing with each other, with one of them describing how ecstatic/excited she is and the other attempting to get her to calm down.

The movie passes 3 out of 3. Also, yes, mods please correct the title.

Andrea disagreed with the rating and said:
I provided a case from the film in which two women talk to each other about something other than a man, proving that the rating should be 3 out of 3. The comment was approved, but the rating of the film has not been changed. Is there any reason for this?

Are the women in the movie on TV named? If not then it would not pass the test.

This movie would be hard-pressed to pass since it never really leaves Michael's personal perspective.
