Darnn said:
There are various minor roles for women, such as secretaries, waitresses, etc. None of these talk to each other.

Kathleen Turner's character has scenes with her sister-in-law and the sister-in-law's daughter, but they barely address each other.

Turner's character also exchanges a few lines with a female friend, but these are at the presence of Hurt's character and mostly refer to him.

There's nothing like an actual conversation between two women, even about men.
