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.

The two lead characters, played by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon, are appealing at start but become tiresome as they move along.

If director Scott intended to picture a growing sense of female triumph, he failed miserably.

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.
March 19, 2003
Thelma and Louise's feminist call to arms winds up sounding woefully simple-minded.

A film about the type of women's liberation that I despise.

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?

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?

Ultimately, this road movie calls on too many knee-jerk reactions: its shocking and funny scenes rely squarely on role reversals within a traditionally male genre.

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.

Feminist road movie is only for the very mature.

What sets Thelma & Louise aside from the great central tradition of the road picture is that the heroes are women this time.

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.

The aftereffects of Women's Lib are captured in this feminist hymn.

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.
