    Clicking and Streaming: 'Fried Green Tomatoes' and 'Bridesmaids,' two films that pass The Bechdel Test
    When it comes to film, representations of women are for the most part, epic fails. They're almost always afforded roles like a flatly characterized romantic partner or their actions and emotions are used toward other, almost always male characters' motivations.

Conceived by cartoonist Alison Bechdel in a 1985 strip from her seminal comic "Dykes To Watch Out For," it is used to highlight the rare movies which feature women talking to each other about something other than a man. That's literally it. Three criteria: It has to have (1) two named women who (2) talk to each other, (3) about something other than a man. You'd think that it would be incredibly easy to pass this test, but the sheer volume of movies (most of them) that don't make the cut is disappointing and lame.
