Lisa McDowell and her sister talk to each other, but their conversation is, in essence, about a man (or at least about a gift from a man). However, Lisa and Queen Aoleon say hello and talk to each other briefly (about something besides a man), so the film makes the test, but not with a very wide margin.

In one scene, the sisters talk about men - but discuss their own preferences and choices, not whether the men will accept them. Imho this is close enough.
