Many women appear in this movie and are considered central to the plot. However, very few of them are actually named or interact with one another. Early in the movie, a neighborly squabble is seen by our peeping male protagonist, where two women argue over the volume of one’s speaker system from across the apartment complex. Later, two unnamed actors and moonlighting sex workers conversate over their appearance in a film as they watch it. Among these exchanges, only one of the characters has a name (Sarah). Some female characters have been assigned names in the credits, but those names are never spoken on screen (or at least not that I noticed).

Mat disagreed with the rating and said:
There are actually two named women, Sarah, and Millicent Sevence, the daughter of the billionaire, named around 31'.
They never meet, so 1/3 and not 0/3.
