You know what I hate about movies? The fact that a friend gave me this challenge almost a decade ago, and I don’t think I’ve seen a single movie since then that fit the bill.

Name a movie where the protagonist is an adult woman, and she ends up
1. Alive and healthy
2. Happy

3. Not in love

What’s even more amazing (in a “what the fuck?” way) is how few movies pass the Bechdel Test:

1. There must be more than one female character
2. They must talk to each other
3. They must talk about something other than a man.
