Komond said:
There are several female characters that have a name, they talk to each other about a man once:

Ursa: What an undemanding male this Superman must be.

Lois Lane: Yeah, and you could use a tuck here and there yourself, sister.

In another scene, Lois talks to Ursa besides a man, but Ursa doesn't answer, so not sure it can be considered "to each other":

Lois: (to Ursa) You know? You're a pain in the neck! (and hits Ursa that falls into a big hole)

Sinhache disagreed with the rating and said:
Ursa is not named on the film
Even if she was, the only conversation she has with Lois is about Superman, I wouldn't consider the phrase Lois says to her when she hits her "talk to each other"
