Louise is working in a diner as a waitress and has some problems with her boyfriend Jimmy, who, as a musician, is always on the road. Thelma is married to Darryl who likes his wife to stay quiet in the kitchen so that he can watch football on TV. 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.

In the scene where Thelma meets Jimmy at the motel to get the money, it is very obviously nighttime as seen through the windows. However, moments before entering the motel, it is daylight. It is daylight (but clearly a little later) again when they are back outside. See more »
[in the parking lot outside the bar where Harlan is attempting to rape Thelma]
Get away from her you fuckin' asshole or I'm gonna splatter your ugly face all over this nice car.
[Getting off of Thelma]
Easy, we're just having a little fun.
Sounds like you got a real fucked up idea of fun. Turn around. In the future, when a woman's crying like that, she isn't having any fun!
Bitch! I shoulda gone ahead and fucked her!
Why did you say?
I said suck my cock.

You have to give it up for a movie that casts Michael Madsen as pretty much the only sane guy in existence. Thelma (Geena Davis) and Louise (Susan Sarandon) go off from their banal existences to a trip that heads up poop creek really REALLY fast. After shooting dead a would-be rapist, they both head for the hills where the law, personal freedom and, yes, Brad Pitt await! I hadn't seen this in quite a number of years, and it was great to come back to. I remembered a lot of it, but I noticed particularly this time the strong performances of not only of Davis and Sarandon, but of Harvey Keitel, Madsen (who is actually amazing), Pitt, and quite underplayingly, Christopher Mcdonald. Ridley Scott puts these elements all together in one explosive package.
