I forget what it is called...

I read about this simple way to determine how male-centric a movie is. If a film does not contain these three things, then we ought not to be showing it to our children:

Have at least two female characters with names
Have those female characters speak directly to one another
Have that conversation be about something other than a man

It is amazing how few movies pass this test.

The level of violence could also be a determinant. Even some of the so called "chick flicks" would have trouble meeting your criteria.
