MisterTao disagreed with the rating and said:
The conversation between Rita and Dana is very short, maybe two sentences. But not about a man. The interaction between MaryBeth and Justine is also very short. It has one sentence about a man and one that's not. I feel this is either a 1 (if these do not count as conversations) or a 3 (if it does). Also, while a male heavy film, the female characters were good.

If 'talk to each other' requires actual information input/exchange, then both Rita/Dana and Meredith/Justine cannot count, cos after all Dana only responded by 'Sorry' and Marybeth greeted with a 'Hello'. Plus I believe the subtext of Rita's words is asking Dana to stop interacting with Chris.
Nevertheless it's still comforting to see Rita as a female management staff, albeit turned out to be a scapegoat later; and Marybeth as an independent investigating agent. As for Dana, she merely supported for the character portrait of Chris, as a cliche damsel in distress.
