It’s really just a quick conversation with her roommate, and then there’s some dialogue at the sorority meeting

She has multiple conversations with her sorority sisters that don't have anything to do with male characters, including multiple exchanges with her roommate.

HEAVY disagree with it being dubious. This movie passes with flying colors.

In the first day alone, Tree talks to Lori about her birthday, the cupcake she made, and Tree's driver's license. At the sorority meeting, which is all women speaking to one another (obviously) they discuss the charity that they plan on donating to and Danielle degrades Becky about her meal. At the hospital, Tree and Lori briefly talk about the shift that Lori picked up for her coworker. Later, Danielle comes into Tree's room to talk about wearing Tree's shirt, the party they're going to, and the power outage.

These conversations repeat themselves many times throughout the film as per the plot, and the other conversations she has change to meet the Bechdel test, such as during the second day when Tree comes home to Danielle asking her where she's been and instead of talking about who she was sleeping with, they instead talk about déjà vu and Tree's drinking.

Tree and Danielle talk briefly about Lori at the surprise party. During the third repetition, Tree and Lori talk about how Tree's been repeating her day and how she's worried about being killed again. During the repetition where she makes everything right, she apologizes to Lori about being such a bad roommate. During the final repetition, Tree figures out that Lori poisoned the cupcake (The motivation behind the poisoning is a man and they talk about Joseph Tombs briefly but other than that, the conversation revolves around the cupcake.) While Lori and Tree are fighting, Danielle comes in to ask what they're doing, Lori says that Tree fell, and Danielle reminds them about the meeting.

Those are just the passes that I caught, and there could easily be more.

This movie is far from a "dubious" pass. If someone could change the rating that would be good.
