Blockbuster movies that pass the Bechdel test
The films must show female characters discussing something other than men
Since it was created by American cartoonist Alison Bechdel in 1985, the "Bechdel test" has become a popular way to assess a film's female-friendly credentials. The rules are simple: the movie must contain two or more named female characters, and these characters must talk to each other about something other than men. Sounds simple, right? But a great many films fail to reach even this seemingly-easy benchmark.
There's good news for film fans, though: it's not just famously feminist movies that do make the grade. Many a blockbuster movie gets the Bechdel green light. Click through this gallery to see which of your favorite hit movies pass the Bechdel test.
