    Seriously? Did you look at the list?

    Half of the movies are love stories...and chick flicks I might add...so of course all they do is talk about men. A good quarter or so are about men (not every movie is about women you know) like Borne Supremacy and Slum Dog Millionaire or are cartoons with few gender specific figures. The other quarter actually pass the test, like Laura Croft Tomb Raider....ABOUT A WOMAN NO LESS...and Transformers.

    I'm sorry, but this is just a standard that is absolutely silly. I wonder how many movies would pop up the other way around...if you replaced the rules with the word men for women. Fried green tomatoes, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Love Potion #9, Toy Story, Walle, A Bug's Life, Bee Movie...and that's just off the top of my head.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    How many movies do have at least one male character talking to another male character about something other than a woman?
    I may be wrong.
