Aboard the Millennium Falcon, Qi'ra and L3 (female droid) talk to each other about Lando and love. This is the closest we get to two female talking alone. Other scenes contain women talking to a group.

Dialoge of Qi'ra and L3 starts with question Qi'ra about space outside the ship, then L3 talks about dangerous of Kessel Run. And after that they talks about relationships. Formally - they had conversation with each other not about men, but only in 2 lines.

Not sure if it passes the test or not, as there's a brief scene where Qi'ra and Enfys Nest are exchanging like three sentences. I don't know if that counts as they are technically also about men, just not that obviously.

Qi'ra and Enfys Nest also have a brief discussion by themselves, but they only talk about Han and Beckett.

Technically though the imperial emmigration officer and Qi'ra did talk about the coaxum while they were trying to bribe their way through the gates.

After Qi'ra takes out a guy, L3 comments about the move. Qi'ra then says Dryden taught her. Technically, they're talking about the move, and not Dryden, so it might pass, but it would be dubious. (I don't think it's dubious that L3 should count as female character, though. She's definitely female.) Only other female/female dialogue is when Qi'ra talks to Enfys (though I don't remember if she's named in the movie), but they are definitely talking about Han and Beckett.

two female characters also speak when Qi'ra and Enfys Nest interact, but it's only a few words that solely focus on Han.

Before Qi’ra and L3-37 talk about Lando in the same scene, they discuss the maelstrom they are flying through for a few seconds.

Qira and L3 talk in a later scene in passing. About what’s happening with the uprising taking place, can’t remember exactly what it was about but they weren’t talking about Lando or a man. Granted this movie barely passes and you have to count a droid who sounds like a woman. Weather or not you count L3 merits it’s own conversation.

Also, I wasn’t aware of any rules about the women having to be alone vs talking in a group. Is that that a rule?

it may pass by the very slimmest technicality when L3 compliments Qi'ra on her fighting technique. But then Qi'ra immediately credits a man for teaching her, which may invalidate the conversation.

I think Solo actually barely passes. When they're on Kessel, Qi'ra and L3 (female droid) go into the office of the administrator for negotiations and Qi'ra kills him. L3 says "Woah!" and then asks Qi'ra what that was, and Qi'ra responds with the type of fighting she used. I don't remember the exact exchange of dialogue, but I feel like it's enough to barely count.

I agree with the rating, If there is so much debate about whether a few lines of dialogue about space weather counts as 'passing' then it should be clear that it doesn't pass.
