All the while, of course, Mount Vesuvius is itching to make her Grand Entrance–Yowza! (JLH: 3.5/5)

Q: Does Pompeii 3D pass the Bechdel Test? Alas, no.DoomedLovers

Here we get into one of the Bechdel Test’s gray areas: what exactly is “a conversation” between two women characters & how long does this “conversation” have to last in order to qualify…?

I say that if the total time named female characters spend talking to each other about something other than a man is less than a minute, then there is no “conversation” & the film does not qualify. (I mean really: ONE minute in a film lasting between 90 & 180 minutes is that really too much to ask?!?)

In the case of Pompeii 3D, Cassia (Browning) exchanges a few words with her mother “Aurelia” (Carrie-Ann Moss) & her slave “Ariadne” (Jessica Lucas), but in my opinion, no actual “conversations” occur in these contexts… Too bad, but so it goes. Lovers? Yes! Bechel? No.
