Wenlock disagreed with the rating and said:
Not that it's a particularly scintillating exchange, but Heather Lee has a conversation of about three lines with a hotel receptionist when she arrives in Las Vegas. The conversation is about the usual banalities of checking into a hotel room, and no men are mentioned.

The receptionist has a clearly visible name tag stating that her name is 'Leslie'. Whilst this is a pretty bare-bones instance of naming (so much so that my friend and I wondered if this had been specifically inserted to tokenistically pass the test), but as far as I know the test does not require the characters to be named through dialogue.

Ryan disagreed with the rating and said:
The concierge of the Vegas hotel (whose name was clearly Leslie) gives Alicia Vikander's character (Heather Lee?) her room number and comments on how nice her room is (no mention of a man) and Vikander thanks her in her response. Passes 3/3, but very dubiously.
