The Bechdel Test For Movies (video)

Sociological Images posted this cool video explaining the Bechdel Test for movies.

What is the Bechdel Test?

"The Bechdel Test, sometimes called the Mo Movie Measure or Bechdel Rule is a simple test which names the following three criteria: (1) it has to have at least two women in it, who (2) who talk to each other, about (3) something besides a man. The test was popularized by Alison Bechdel's comic Dykes to Watch Out For, in a 1985 strip called The Rule." (Video after the jump because I can't resize it.)
