It certainly fails, but I think it might be a 1/3. Chris names one of his daughters ("Bonnie"?) and I think the other; other possibly named females are the police chief (tho no name in the credits), and the lady who finally lets her flat be searched.

Keegan disagreed with the rating and said:
During the song “Castle on a Cloud” (there’s only two lines of non-song dialogue in the whole movie), Mrs Thenardier enters while Cosette is daydreaming. Both roles are named females. Thenardier yells at Cosette and demands that she “fetches water from the well in the wood.” Cosette begs the woman to let her stay, but Thenardier refuses, and Cosette leaves. This should allow the movie to pass the test; I’m not sure why it doesn’t.

1. Several named female characters - Fantine, Cosette, Eponine, Mme Thenardier
2. Mme Thenardier speaks to both Eponine and Cosette
3. She talks about hats and chores, respectively.

Keegan, Claire, you are commenting on the wrong film (see the IMDB link). You are obviously looking for an adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel, this film is not such an adaptation.
