In the original script, the characters of Thelma and Louise were supposed to be the same age. However, changes were made once the roles were cast due to Susan Sarandon being ten years older than Geena Davis. A conversation in which the two reminisce about going to high school together was among the removed dialogue. See more »
When Thelma and Louise enter a diner to phone Thelma's husband, Thelma uses the pay phone correctly by dialing the number first and then inserting coins. Right after she hangs up, Louise uses the phone but inserts coins without having dialed first. In real life the coins would have come back, as a number has to be dialed in order to know how much to put into the phone. See more »
[talking about their cabin vacation in the mountains later in the day]
You mean you haven't asked him yet? Thelma, for Christ's sake. Thelma, is he your husband, or your father. It's just two days for God's sake. Don't be a child. Tell him you're with me.
Tell him I'm having a nervous breakdown.
That don't carry much weight with Darryl. He already thinks you're out of your mind.

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.
