I counted 3 women who spoke in the movie. Although one woman does speak to a group that includes another woman, I do not feel as though this counts as them having a conversation, especially since the girl in the group does not respond back to the woman who speaks. Also, the main female character is "the girl" and this point is made clear in a very cringe-worthy way. Ugh.

Rachel disagreed with the rating and said:
It didn't even pass 1 of 3 in my opinion. There are only three female characters and they most definetely don't talk to each other without a man being involved.

George disagreed with the rating and said:
3 out of 3
I can think of 3 named females
2 of which do talk to each other when making a plan for London ( Lula and Bubu)
This conversation is not about a male as a plan has no gender

There is one scene where a group conversation happens. There are 5 men and 2 women in the group. At no point in the conversation do the two women exchange words directly with each other. The closest we get is when one woman is addressing the group and the other woman is shown with a smile of agreement.
