They decide to go to Mexico, but soon they are hunted by American police. Written by

After Thelma and Louise blow up the rude trucker's tanker, they drive their car in rings around him. But the trucker is already standing in the middle of a ring of darker-colored freshly turned earth left by a previous take. See more »
What did Darryl have to say?
Oh, he said: Oh, hey, Thelma, I just wanted to make sure you was all right. I sure hope you're having fun. You deserve it, after all you put up with me. I love you, honey.
[She swigs from a mini-bottle]
So, how long before we're in goddamn Mexico?

THELMA & LOUISE has to be regarded as a pure 90s classic that brought up a considerable amount of risk in creating a first-person feminist formula into a mainstream movie, which is often missing. It pulls off fantastically true in form, with the exceptional Southern character talents of the two lady fugitives on the run, Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, who may stand out as memorable on the silver screen. Let's not forget that silly truck driver they pass quite often, and of course, cowboy Brad Pitt as a young student. While not needed to be fully reliant on action substances like gunshooting, there is good chemistry within its grasp. Every single minute should not be wasteful, as plenty of refreshing outbursts of enjoyment outweighs the familiar old plot of evading the police. The ending is a definite eye catcher, and also the riskiest ever filmed! Beware of this rip-off called GOOD GIRLS DON'T, another poor B-movie with no redeeming quality. Satisfyingly original, and highly recommended!
