At no point in the movie do the women talk to each other. Very disappointing.

There are at least two named women (Katya, a Russian assistant, and Kathy, the protagonists fiancée) but they do not speak to each other throughout the entire film.

This is another classic failure. The only major female character is the hero's girlfriend. She's only useful to the story when she's getting kidnapped or flirting with the antagonist when she's roped into the espionage.

The villain's assistant barely counts against the "two women" part of the test. But she's there, and I did notice that Jack's support team had at least one woman I remember in it. But they aren't meaningful characters.
