I'm not certain they have names, I can't recall and the credits don't help, but two women at the very start argue about keeping the noise down.

No other women talk to each other in the rest of the film.

It's ironic that this film only passes because of a throwaway exchange between characters in the sexploitation porn film-within-a-film at the start.

This is most definitely a case where the most objectifying and (intentionally) demeaning element of the film is the only element that actually passes the Bechdel Test.
