Batman needs more women

I went to see THE DARK KNIGHT over the weekend and while I enjoyed the movie I left feeling that something was missing.

Thanks to Bitch Ph.D. I now know why. This movie, like so many others, failed the Bechdel Rule. You'll want to read the entire post, but briefly the Bechdel Rule states that movies should have:

1) at least two women
2) who talk to each other
3) about something other than a man.

Oddly enough, MAMMA MIA! might just pass but I haven't seen it so I can't say for sure.

Small little world. I had dinner with M. LeBlanc of Bitch Ph.D. in Paris in March.
