This movie has three named female characters, Rosa, Keisha, and Jenny.

At 47:35, Jenny Compliments Keisha on her cooking.

Jenny: "Oh hey Keisha the dinner was so amazing, the chicken was unbelievably tender and real juicy.

Keisha: "Oh well actually that was all Malcolm."

Jenny: "Was it really now? I'll be damned..."

This may not count because Keisha's husband Malcolm is mentioned.

Keisha is also seen speaking to Jenny in the background at 18:50 and 21:23 however in both cases the conversations are inaudible.

I have not seen this film, but Justin your intuition is correct: the passage is not sufficient to warrant the rating, since Keisha's reply and Jenny's subsequent line both reference a man - hence no talking TO EACH OTHER about sth other than a man. Inaudible conversations do not count either (they might be talking about a man!!).
