There are at least three named female chracters in the film - Liz, Aunt May, and Michelle. The only scene I remember between two female characters was when Liz was talking about "F, Marry or Kill" with her friends, but none of them (except maybe Betty) were named, and they were talking about Spider-Man anyways, so it wouldn't count.

Liz and Betty Brant discuss which of the Avengers they have crushes on. I think Betty is only named in the credits, though, so if that doesn't count then this rating should stay at 1.

Great female characters- but unfortunately I don't think any of them speak to each other.

Maybe Liz and Liz's mum briefly.

Near the end of the movie, Liz and Betty (the blonde who does the video announcements) have the briefest conversation about Liz moving away, before being interrupted by Peter. Also, Liz and Betty have a conversation earlier in the film with at least one other unnamed female character where they play eff/marry/kill about the Avengers, so it at least passes 2 of 3 tests.

Liz and Betty (named on the TV screen as an anchor of the school's news team) talk briefly by the end, when Liz is moving out of the city.

Several have disagreed and provided evidence that the rating needs to change... Can this be reviewed?

It passes on two occasions:
1) liz and her mother :'Have fun', 'Thanks'.
2) Liz and her friend 'I'll miss you', 'Bye'.
These are technicalities, sure, but these are the test standards, let's be honest and true here.

Liz and Michelle talk during the quiz team scenes, even if only briefly.
