CarLover said:
During the chase scene in Russia Ramsey and Letty are in a car together. When they are in a tight spot:
R: "Tell me we're going to be okay!"
L: "We go this."

Unfortunately, this is the only example in the film and it's barely a conversation

Agreed. I thought that with Charlize Theron as the villain, there should have at least been an exchange, but no. They don't even talk. Also, Ramsey doesn't get a last name, so might fail the "must be named" addendum.

Ricardo Cardoso disagreed with the rating and said:
After the event and when they found out that Dom turned on them, Ramsey mentioned that Dom was probably no longer the same person, and Letty challenge her and told her that they were not going to give up on dom. This was the only actual conversation in the whole movie between these two, and it failed the test

It passes. There are two named female characters (the test doesn't require last names) who talk to each other (the test doesn't require it to be a "conversation") about something other than a male (their own survival).

I feel the arguments against the results of the test are misdirected arguments against the simplicity of the test itself.
