There is one conversation between two women in the movie- Diana and Trish at Sandy and Trish's house, while Trish is doing the dishes.

There is a brief interlude where Diana asks if she can help with the dishes and Trish says "no, it's okay" but I doubt that is enough of a conversation to pass.

They have a conversation after that, but it is only about Sandy (Trish's husband) and whether he had sex with Diana.

Diana talks to the daughters, Frannie and Jessie, about food on the face. Does that count?

Diana and Trish do talk to each other -- when Sandy brings Diana home, and says she will be spending one night. Diana says to Trish, If that's alright with you. And Trish says, It's kind of mandatory.
It may be a very short exchange, but it does satisfy the third criteria. I say, this movie passes all three tests!
As for Trish's conversation with the Frannie and Jessie, the two daughters, I would posit that this is also evidence that the movie passes all three tests. I don't think we should discount females just because they are young. However, the criteria does explicitly say "women."

I disagree with the rating. The wife plays a minor role in the movie. And the conversation is about more than the man in the movie.

JD disagreed with the rating and said:
Diana and Trish speak to each other briefly in a lot of the tail end of the movie. Another scene is when Diana and Trish discuss her test scores. Also I feel like talking to the girls more than counts.
