I fell in love with Susan Sarandon [in this movie]...

Regardless of its feminist stacked deck, "Thelma & Louise" is still one of the most fun movies you'll ever see.
September 15, 2017
The spirit of Thelma and Louise was one of freedom, which still resonates today.
May 24, 2016
"Thelma & Louise" is a rare thrill - a gleefully offbeat road movie in which two women, instead of the usual footloose fellas, exult in the heady freedom of America's lonesome highways.
July 13, 2014
The best thing that Ridley Scott ever directed that didn't take place in an impressively designed industrial future.
March 21, 2014
An enduring classic radically redefining women in movies - or at least some of them. And should finally put to rest the intended ending as not self-obliteration, but a burst of magical realism in flight 'out of this world and into the mass unconscious.'

If director Scott intended to picture a growing sense of female triumph, he failed miserably.
July 30, 2013
This unexpected delight, which travels at top speed from the doldrums to the Grand Canyon, is moreover blessed with two high-octane performances.
July 30, 2013
Thelma & Louise has its own ending. It may be as questionable as the rest of the picture, but at least you know it wasn't spliced on by some guy in marketing.
July 30, 2013
There are plenty of great one-liners in Callie Khouri's script, and cinematographer Adrian Biddle never fails to give viewers an eye full -- even when it's a ridiculous eye full.
July 30, 2013
The feminist justification that the script provides for the heroines' behavior doesn't make their actions any less preposterous. But you can recognize the crudeness of the movie's narrative devices and still have an awfully good time.

Female empowerment and gorgeous vistas from Ridley Scott,
July 30, 2013
Any movie that went as far out of its way to trash women as this female chauvinist sow of a film does to trash men would be universally, and justifiably, condemned.
July 30, 2013
Thelma & Louise isn't only a movie, it's also a journey. In some dark night of your distant past, you might once have dreamed about taking it.
July 30, 2013
If the only way a woman can light up the screen these days is with a .38-caliber pistol, isn't that just another form of subordination?
July 30, 2013
Are we so starved for "strong" women's roles that this revenge, and the pell-mell, lunatic flight that follows, fits anyone's definition of strength, or even more peculiarly, of neo-feminism?
July 30, 2013
Whereas the material begs for the off-stride touch of a Jonathan Demme, it is sabotaged by Scott, who seems to have little affinity for whimsy.
July 30, 2013
The two lead characters, played by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, are appealing at start but become tiresome as they move along.
July 30, 2013
In creating the characters Thelma and Louise for this hugely entertaining and controversial road movie, Oscar-winning scriptwriter Callie Khouri put women in the driving seat for the first time.
August 31, 2012
Loyalty and friendship between two women who discover beauty, lust, and the wonder of the road is at the heart of "Thelma & Louise."
