There are really only two notable female characters in this movie, forest ranger Grace, and her fiance's daughter Natalie. (There is also a female Dr. Marquez, that Grace talks to in a couple of scenes, but only about Pete). There is only one short conversation that lets this pass. When Natalie first meets Pete, she falls out of a tree, and all the adults come running. Grace asks, "What happened to you?" Natalie replies, "I fell out of tree" and Grace responds "You fell out of a tree?" Then Natalie's father joins in. But it's enough to let it pass.
