Film Summary: Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon play Thelma and Louise, two working-class friends who together have planned a weekend getaway from the men in their lives. Thelma’s husband, Darryl (Chris McDonald), is an overbearing oaf, and Louise’s boyfriend, Jimmy (Michael Madsen), simply will not commit. Though the road trip starts out as a good time, the pair eventually wind up at a bar. A tipsy Thelma ends up in the parking lot of the bar with a would-be rapist. Louise shoots the man dead. The two decide that they have no choice but to go on the run. They eventually meet up with a young criminal named J.D. (Brad Pitt), whose cowboy spirit rubs off on the timid Thelma. The pair is pursued by a police officer (Harvey Keitel) sympathetic toward their plight. He chases them to the Grand Canyon, where the women make a fateful decision about their lives. Directed by Ridley Scott, Thelma & Louise brought first-time screenwriter Callie Khouri many accolades including the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. - Perry Seibert, Rovi

"Right from its gratuitously gorgeous opening shot-a beckoning panorama of red-rock mesas Thelma & Louis lets you know that it's going to be well, bigger than just another road movie."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"What sets Thelma & Louise aside from the great central tradition of the road picture is that the heroes are women this time."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This wincingly funny, pertinent and heartbreaking road movie means to get under your skin, and it does."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"An exhilarating vehicle for Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, it spins its wheels in a giddy sort of way, then puts the pedal to the mettle, lays rubber and fairly takes wing."
- Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"This is a movie to love, that touches you in places you never suspected, that shows you that the road less traveled is the road to your dreams. "
- Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Sarandon and Davis give superb, wonderfully interactive performances: funky, fierce, funny and poignant."
- Jack Kroll, Newsweek
"This unexpected delight, which travels at top speed from the doldrums to the Grand Canyon, is moreover blessed with two high-octane performances."
- Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Thelma & Louise is a rare thrill - a gleefully offbeat road movie in which two women, instead of the usual footloose fellas, exult in the heady freedom of America's lonesome highways."
- Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News
