Heathers (1989)
Vix's rating:

In order to pass the Bechdel Test a film should:

1. Have at least two women (named characters) in it,
2. Who talk to each other,
3. About something besides a man.

Simple, right?

It is based on Alison Bechdel's 1985 comic

Video on the topic
Screenwriter John August muses on the topic
Jennifer Kesler has an interesting piece on the issue
