Directed by action master Ridley Scott (Hannibal, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) from an Oscar(r)-winning* screenplay by Callie Khouri, Thelma & Louise is an "exhilarating" (The Washington Post), full-throttle adventure hailed as one of the best road movies of all time! Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star as accidental outlaws on a desperate flight across the Southwest after a tragic incident at a roadside bar. With a determined detective (Harvey Keitel) on their trail, a sweet-talking hitchhiker (Brad Pitt) in their path and a string of crimes in their wake, their journey alternates between hilarious, high-speed thrill ride and empowering personal odyssey even as the law closes in. *1991: Original Screenplay
Recorded for the original 1997 DVD of Thelma & Louise, Ridley Scott's intelligent commentary track summarizes the director's career before addressing all aspects of this blessed (and, for Scott, enjoyable) production. Of particular interest is Scott's comparison of British and American notions of beauty, as expressed in the film's archetypal use of California and Utah locations. Exclusive to this 2003 DVD, a commentary track by costars Sarandon and Davis and screenwriter Khouri is more casual (and partially redundant with the excellent retrospective documentary), but their observations about the film are both heartfelt and insightful (and Khouri's right--the sexist trucker is an unfortunate caricature). The documentary highlights the film's metamorphosis from script to screen, while deleted scenes reveal a richer development of male characters that's less evident in the finished film. The multiangle "final chase" analysis indicates how closely Scott follows his storyboards. In addition to the (fortunately) unused "happy" ending, these features allow a thorough understanding of Thelma & Louise as a social phenomenon; only Glenn Frey's music video seems dated and extraneous. --Jeff Shannon

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star in the movie, Thelma and Louise. Both are excellent in their roles of ordinary people, friends who plan an adventure together that suddenly goes haywire. Together they make a series of mistakes, mistakes that anyone might make but for them prove to be their undoing.
One might equate them to a modern day Bonnie and Clyde but I would disagree. Bonnie and Clyde were vicious outlaws bent on robbery and murder, while Thelma and Louise fell into crime by accident and were at a loss how to get free from the mess they found themselves in.
I enjoyed watching this movie and would reccomend it to any woman trying to get free from a tyrannical husband.
