Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Does Thelma & Louise make a serious statement about feminine empowerment, or is it just a good old-fashioned road movie with female protagonists? That’s the question that has been debated ever since this wildly popular movie first hit the big screen in 1991. An Oscar winner for screenwriter Callie Khouri, Thelma & Louise also garnered Academy Award nominations for director Ridley Scott Alien and costars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis. These loyal friends throw off society’s shackles and turn a weekend road trip into a gen-yoo-wine odyssey -- and they both turn in remarkable work. Arkansas housewife Thelma Sarandon and sexy waitress Louise Davis first get into trouble when they hit a roadside honky-tonk. Before you know it, they’ve killed a would-be rapist and turned their joy ride into a major crime spree. Alternately serious and silly, this unassuming little movie became a bona fide cultural phenomenon. It still holds up, too: Like most pictures of its kind, Thelma & Louise exudes reckless exhilaration. It’s not, as some still maintain, about women versus men -- it’s about freedom. It’s spiffed up on the Special Edition DVD with a new transfer and accompanied by 30 minutes of recently rediscovered footage and an alternate ending. It also includes two different commentaries, one by Scott and the other by Sarandon, Davis, and Khouri. Scott also comments during the deleted scenes. The film’s alternate ending, storyboard-to-screen comparisons, and a Glenn Frey music video round out this very attractive and appealing package.
All Movie Guide
A revisionist buddy movie/chase movie
oad movie/gangster movie/crime drama, Thelma & Louise breathed new life into old genres while vividly reimagining them. Swapping grizzled anti-heroes for smart, sexy anti-heroines (leading one critic to dub the film Bitch Cassidy and the Sundress Kid), it was seen as both a stirring odyssey and a polarizing feminist tract. Following its heroines across the male frontier of the American heartland, the film communicated a message of strength through sisterly solidarity, beginning with Louise's rescue of Thelma from a would-be rapist and ending with an ambivalently triumphant climax. Unsurprisingly, audiences and critics found this message more than a little provocative, and Thelma and Louise became one more battleground for the continuing conflict between feminists and their opponents. Political ramifications aside, Thelma & Louise stands out as a terrific piece of genre filmmaking; its blend of breathless liberation and ominous foreshadowing make it one of the most successfully realized films of its kind ever made, an enduring tribute to friendship and the open road.

    Myopic and Vulgar

    A myopic attempt at marketing feminism in Hollywood showing all men as either stupid, psychotic, or deceptive, and women as their frustrated victims literally pushed over the edge. Even if such a theme was not the feminist propaganda that it is, it seeks to glorify its female heroines with characters of such idiocy that they don't evoke the slightest sympathy. Why should one have a soft heart for a pair of female low-lifes who are victims of nothing more than their own stupidity? With backward logic, the heroines choose to become fugitives from a homicide that any average person would clearly regard as self-defense. The characters then compound their problem by becoming armed robbers and fugitives?! The emotion stirred in me by the 'tragic' ending was more the relief of, 'Good! That's what all criminals should do before they commit a crime: especially stupid ones!' Perhaps amusing to the bored housewife-type or deluded militant feminist but not my cup of tea. Worth renting perhaps: hardly worth owning this overhyped junk film.

    I did not receive this version of Thelma & Louise which was supposed to have 2nd disc of special features with 
    "Thelma & Louise: The Last Journey".  Disc package I received had different image than what was shown on 
    Barnes & Noble website.  I had to return it.

    Mother's Day Gift

    I had two cats that I named Thelma & Louise and eventually had to give them to my mom because my husband became very allergic. My brother rented and watched this movie with her and she loved it. She liked it so much she asked me that if I saw it to buy it for her...so that's just what I did and so this was part of her Mother's Day gift. Thanks

    Good movie

    I can't stress enough how hot Geena Davis is. She had a really good role in this movie of friendship and love. It's amazing how far a true friend will go for you. Although I think this movie was a little drawn out, it was well worth it by the end. The chemistry between Davis & Sarandon was excellent. This is a touching movie in a dark way. I'm glad that Pitt only had a very small part in this movie.

    Well done

    Susan Sarandon and Gina Davis give a well done and convincing performance about two woman who run into severe issues with the law after one of them is sexually assaulted and a self-defense kill is done by the other one. It's a great, fun movie which portrays a lot of courage and amazing friendship traits between the two woman. You'll laugh a lot and at the same time realize just how valuable a friendship can be.

    pretty cool

    This film is a very strong film and a way of showing feminine power without creating an annoying girl band.
