Mo Movie Measure

Here is a movie watching rule I came across. Its the Bechdel-Wallace rule and is known as the Mo Movie Measure in pop culture.
The rule goes thus. The movie should:
1. Have at least 2 women in it
2. who talk to each other
3. about something other than a man.

How many movies do we know that could pass this test?
Shall we add some other rules?
How about a movie with at least 2 men in it, who talk to each other without using unparliamentary language and unnecessary arm-punching/backslapping and do not talk about sex or war?
Hmmm... Cinema has to go a long way, sigh.
