Uh... This movie passes the Bechdel test in all three catagories.
1.) 2 named female characters: There were at minimum 9 that i remember
2.)They talk to each other: Through out the movie, that's apperant.
3.) About something other than a man: They make uniforms and discuss other things than men, two characters nurse a bird back to life without a man, Gloria talks to all the wives about life, many others.

This movie totally passes... It actually presents the women of the movie as rounded characters with their own agencey and decisions ( except Rita, who is a nanny).

Whoever filled out this form obviously didn't pay that much attention.

But disagreed with the rating and said:

What about the part with the Canadian muscle man?
