although all they talk about it hermes' body, LaBarbara and the blonde dr. speak twice in the movie, including this:

LaBarbara: Oh, no, my man! He's essentially dead again.

Dr. Cahill: Relax ma'am. Your husband's original body will be repaired within one week.

LaBarbara: Nah uh uh. Not soon enough. Boy needs a daddy.

You guys don't seem to understand the test, they have to talk about something other than a man.

"Lars is so flirting with you" - Lars is obviously a man.

"We don't have to stand here and take abuse from a gross nerd" - The nerd is a man.

"Oh no, my man! He's essentially dead again!" - Err, well... "MY MAN"!!!

Chris you are correct, they are indeed talking about men, but what you failed to notice is that the rating is for not having talked to each other at all.

I say this movie passed 2 of three test! (why couldn't they pass the third?)

Chris, (a) I'm going to guess that Brooke and Erica are not "guys", and (b) this isn't simply a yes-or-no rating on this site. The rating is based on how many criteria were passed. People are disagreeing with the rating because the rating suggests that no named female character speak to one another and that the move only passes 1 out of 3 tests. However, female characters do speak to one another about men, so it actually passes 2 out of 3 tests.
