Video Wednesday – Bechdel Test in Movies

Posted Sep 3 2014, 7:30 am in , , , , ,

The Bechdel Test has basically 3 criteria: 2 women, who have names, have a conversation that isn’t about a man. This video hows some movies that pass the test. Obviously, the test is not proof of quality and in truth, I haven’t seen most of these:



As I said in yesterday’s post, I saw 9 movies this summer. Off the top of my head, The Fault in Our Stars would pass because Hazel talks with her mom. Maleficient would pass and so would Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (April has a conversation with her roommate, but I can’t remember her name). I can’t recall if any of my other movies would pass.

What’s the last movie you saw that would pass the Bechdel Test?
