In the Thunderbirds of that era, when the top was down there was very little room to put anything in the trunk as the top took up most of this area. When they are putting the luggage and fishing gear in the trunk, with the top down there would be no room for all the luggage and the top in the trunk. The most that could have gone in the trunk would be two small overnight cases and no room for the fishing pole etc. See more »
So, tell me something, Miss Thelma. How is it you ain't got any kids? I mean God gets you something special, I think you oughta pass it on.
Well, Daryl, that's my husband.
Yeah, he says he's not ready yet. He says he's still too much of a kid himself. He kinda prides himself on being infantile.
He's got a lot to be proud of.
Louise and him don't get along.
That's putting it mildly.
She thinks he's a pig.
I KNOW he's a pig.

I loved this movie from the first time I saw it, but it wasn't until I sat through it the third time that I figured out why. It is clever, exciting, and funny and is shot in the middle of the breathtaking scenery of the American Southwest. However, the thing that makes it special is its illustration of pure friendship. It may be difficult for some men to cross the gender boundary and connect with Thelma and Louise, yet doing so is critical to appreciating the film. If you can make the connection then you can get its message -- we all need a friendship like the one Thelma and Louise had. This movie will strike a deep emotional chord.....if you aren't afraid to let it. And if you happen to be too emotionally closed off to appreciate what I think the movie says about friendship I think that you will still enjoy the characters, acting, action, and humor. It is a ten out of ten.
