It just barely passes due to a brief scene where a female character, Ally, arrives backstage at a concert, and Gail, a stage manager, greets her and gives her instructions.

Jo disagreed with the rating and said:
Gail is not a round character. The name test is meant to pick out which characters are given importance by the script. Gail does not matter to the story. This interaction doesn't satisfy a more critical application of the Bechdel Test.

Hugo Reinhardt disagreed with the rating and said:
They briefly talk about how Jackson is excited that Ally is there, thus making part of the conversation about the main male character.

It's a 2:15 hours movie. One dialogue is trivial

The mention Jackson therefore the conversation did discuss a man.

It doesn't pass the bechdel test, as Ally talks to another female character, yes, but regarding how happy Jackson is that she came, making the conversation about him. There was another female character, Jackson's friend's wife, but she was unnamed, as far as i can remember, and i can't recall the two women talking about anything in particular.

This absolutely does not pass. Gail is not even a supporting character and they talk about Jackson.

Tkarrde disagreed with the rating and said:
I disagree because the main conversation between the two women is about Jackson. Passing this movie is inconsistent with failing other movies for the same reason.
