"THELMA AND LOUISE is a knockout! This briskly paced adventure has everything a movie needs- intelligence, energy, humor, daring. . . it has courage to spare and is clearly the bravest, most breathtaking American film since GOODFELLAS."

"Movie dynamite. . . detonated by award-calibre performances from Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon."
-Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
"Mesmerizing. . . enveloped by the masterly performances of Sarandon and Davis. . . a buddy picture, an on-the-road picture, an existential odyssey. . . you'll wish the movie would never end."
