I don't feel the Bechdel Test is the end-all be-all.
I doubt anyone does, except maybe Alison Bechdel herself.
For most people, it's really only used to show the gender bias of a film. I don't really see people citing it as a guide to judge whether a film is good or not.
It's always funny though to see people get defensive when a film they like fails the test. (For the record, I'm sure most of my favorite movies of all time fail it.)
