This is an all time classic! I've probably watched it 50 times and I absolutely love this movie! Chick flick and more! You won't be disappointed! It's a must for the dvd movie collector.

Best chick flick movie. There isn't a woman who has not seen this movie, joked about being Thelma or Louise. It's some sort of female empowermant. Plus get a look at baby Brad. um um ummm

There are plenty of people out there who struggle from misery due to putting up with the mechanics of ordinary life.For Thelma and Lousie, life was a struggle. Louise (Susan Sarandon) is working in a diner as a waitress and has problems with her boyfriend Jimmy, who she never sees. Thelma (Gena Davis) is married to a man who likes his wife to stay quiet so he can watch football. One day they decide to break out of their normal life and jump in the car and hit the road. Their journey, however, turns into a flight when Louise kills a man who threatens to rape Thelma. They decide to go to Mexico, but soon they are hunted by American police. This original story is one that tests the bounds of freedom and happiness. "Thelma & Louise" is a sweet and cheerful film that fails at the end and drags on a little too long but will keep you completely entertained and if you have an analytic mind it will call you to decide if your life is fulfilled and free. First off, Susan Sarandon and Gena Davis have wonderful chemistry together and work beautifully here. Both of them give dramatic and funny performances to portray ordinary women stuck in their lives. At times they also have fun with their roles. Ridley Scott directs this fun film with a fun energy to it. He doesn't make it seem too realistic, but visually tells a good story that writer Callie Khouri would be proud of. She creates a dazzling original story that not many writers would think of. If it were little more violent it would feel like a Tarantino flick. Khouri develops Thelma and Louise well at first, but once they hit the road she doesn't quite make us grasp for them due to carrying on the story a little too long. It's still a great story. The film overall tests us to ask ourselves if we're satisfied with life and how in order to survive in this world you must be happy and have friendship.
