There are three named female characters. A woman that works at a hardware store, and two prostitutes. One prostitute visits the other in a hospital. The one prostitute is unconscious so she doesn't respond.

There was also the female spy that Washington goes to get info about the Russians. But it super fails the test.

The film has more than 2 named women in it, that talk to one another about something other than a man. When Teri/Alina is in the hospital and her friend Mandy is talking to her in Russian, we see Alina wake up and they do have a sort of conversation. Most of it is comforting words though. It's hard to hear since the scene is so quite however.

as justicar pointed out there was a conversation, it still counts in a foreign language
