Joey said:
The whole movie is two sisters trying to survive a cage trapped in the bottom of shark infested waters, with dimisnishing oxygen, there is a storyline about an ex boyfriend, but it is secondary at most.

They only end up in the cage because they meet two guys on a vacation. The sisters constantly talk about one of their ex-boyfriends, and talk about the other men on the fishing boat. This does not even come close to passing the test!

Emily Aleine disagreed with the rating and said:
Although they do talk about things other than men, I feel at least half of the dialogue centers on men (specifically one characters ex-boyfriend or the men that brought them out into the waters). I feel that qualifies as a failure

This movie has two women named Kate and Taylor.

Who talk to each other

About Taylors Ex boyfriend Stuart, while 47 meters in the ocean.

It's a clear failure of the test.
