There are more than two female characters with names and they talk to each other. Katherine talks to Diane in the emergency room and Rachael talks to Diane at dinner but I think they only ever talk about Adam.

Katherine and Diane also talk about how good Adam's doctor is, but the doctor is also a man haha.

Katherine and Diane do talk about how good Adam's doctor - Dr. Walderson, who performed the surgery, is, and Dr. Walderson is actually woman, played by a female actor - Donna Yamamoto.

While the female doctor is mentioned, they're still very much talking about Adam the whole time.

An excellent movie that nonetheless fails the test, 2/3.
