Thelma and Louise's feminist call to arms winds up sounding woefully simple-minded.

Okay, so it's a bit of a hamfisted approach to putting feminism in an action setting. Still, not bad.

...a good action-adventure movie and a welcome variation on the standard road picture or the usual male-dominated buddy flick.

There's no denying the superb performances of Sarandon and Davis (both of whom earned best actress nominations) and Ridley Scott's equally dazzling direction of cast and camera.

Thelma & Louise may look like just another girl-buddy road picture. But in director Ridley Scott's hands, it's propulsively more.

An exhilarating vehicle for Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, it spins its wheels in a giddy sort of way, then puts the pedal to the mettle, lays rubber and fairly takes wing.

This is a movie to love, that touches you in places you never suspected, that shows you that the road less traveled is the road to your dreams.
