I found this movie very empowering. Not only were the two main characters female, sharing almost all the dialogue and meaningful scenes together, many side characters were female, including their primary assassin nemesis. Furthermore though a man is in the title, I'd argue the main focus and plot of the movie circles around our two heroines in their efforts to overcome obstacles, save people, and keep each other safe. There is a romantic interest, but I felt his involvement was secondary to everything else. I felt this movie passed the test very well.

This film passes two of the tests; it has at least two women in it, and they talk to each other... I did fall asleep halfway through it but my wife informed me that they didn’t talk about anything except men.... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm confused as you why this failed? Please tell me if I'm wrong but the two main, named, female characters speak to each other and not about men. The dumping is clearly the main focus but they do have talks about their friendship and what is happening around them.

This movie passes all 3 tests, so this rating is wrong.
