Complete Bechdel fail. Not only are there no named women, and no women with dialogue, you barely even see women in the background. The major secondary female character/love interest from Rosemary Sutcliff's novel has been removed (given how they changed the direction of the movie, I can see why, but).

(I did enjoy the heck out of it, but I wouldn't say it's a very good movie either.)

So, unless it happened in the very very beginning of the movie I missed, Megamind utterly fails the Bechdel Test--one woman with no other women to talk to! Even worse (with spoilers) )

Counting most optimistically, 9 contained one "woman" character, inasmuch as any of the main wee burlap characters were gendered.

However, that in itself raises interesting questions (and spoilers). )

Overall 9 is a pretty movie, but disappointingly shallow.
