Alison Bechdel has a character in an early number of her comic strip say that she no longer 
watches movies unless

(1) there are at least two women characters
(2) who talk to each other in the course of the movie
(3) about something other than a man or men.

When this was published in the mid-1980s, there were remarkably few American movies coming out 
which met these rather minimal conditions. There are more now, thank heavens. 

But it always amuses me to apply the criterion. :)
