From Amazon.co.uk

Thelma & Louise is a feminist manifesto writ large on the big screen, a smart and funny gender reversal of the standard Hollywood buddy formula, a road movie extraordinaire, with characters who became instant cultural icons. No matter how you define it, Ridley Scott's 1991 box-office hit pinched a nerve and made the cover of national news magazines for tweaking gender politics like no movie before or since. Callie Khouri's screenplay overhauls the buddy formula with its story about two best friends (Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis) who embark on a liberating adventure that turns into an interstate police chase after a traumatic incident makes both women into fugitives; they are en route to a destiny they could never have imagined. The perfect casting of Sarandon and Davis makes Thelma & Louise a movie for the ages and Brad Pitt became an overnight star after his appearance as the con-artist cowboy who gives Davis a memorable (but costly) night in a roadside motel. --Jeff Shannon

This film is absolutely brilliant! If nothing else it is worth watching just for the amazing landscapes and invigorating scenes on an original American Road trip, although I can guarantee there is more to it than that.
What really makes this film is not only it's exciting plot and chase, but the way in which it has an acute combination of every aspect you need to make a film truly brilliant: The two main characters are delightful-it really is rare to relate to characters the way in which I did to Thelma and Louise, the issues dealt with are controversial, evocative and very involving, it's exciting, it's beautiful and it's devastatingly funny. It would be an insult to dismiss this as a "chick-flick" it has a very deep meaning and a rare brilliance that could not possibly keep it confined to this tacky categorisation. It is widely accessible and I'm confident both sexes would get a lot out of it. However, I must admit, girls, you will love it!
This is a film about independence, power and life, and ultimately about friendship.
It comes highly recommended-don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate road movie 22 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
Thelma (Geena Davis) is naive and beautiful, trapped in her role as housewife to puerile, selfish Daryl. Louise (Susan Sarandon) is tough, a world-weary waitress. Thelma and Louise decide to take a short vacation together and, as events unfold, the girls lose any shreds of innocence they had previously and realise that they can never go home again. This is a tale of empowerment and liberation, while it is also tragic.
There is a feminist slant to the film; most of the men (including a gorgeous young Brad Pitt) are negative, emotionally and morally weak characters. The two main character's development is fascinating; Thelma loses her naivety and Louise learns to accept help. Thelma and Louise, despite their increasingly bad behaviour, remain strong, good characters, elicitng support and affection from the audience.
The film's ending is legendary. It immortalises these two characters and their plight, it is incredibly tragic and after watching this film for the first time, I cried for a good half an hour afterwards because it was just so sad. Yet there is also something positive and life-affirming in the women's retention of their freedom and cementing of their friendship.
Thelma and Louise is now a cult film. The acting is honest and impressive. The landscape is beautiful and the music enhances the film's atmosphere. The Oscar winning screenplay is incredible, and Ridley Scott's direction complements it perfectly. The DVD extras include audio commentaries by the director, writer and stars; the alternate endings provide a different perspective of the famous climax. There are a wealth of extras on this DVD, but they are by no means the selling point of the movie: it stands alone as a cult classic; "provocative, poignant and a triumph of moviemaking" could not be more true!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Ray - A Mute Point 26 Feb 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Enough has been said about this movie over the years so I will not bang on about the plot , this is about the new Blu-ray transfer as people will ask "is it worth the upgrade..?"
Well , in was roundabout way yes..The Hi def transfer has a crisp quality and does bring out detail that many earlier incarnations on video and DVD didn't pick up so well. If anybody had the 1990's letterbox video that was 1st released those might recall a fuzziness about Louise's car when it leaves her home to pick up Thelma , but the brilliant detail in many of the car interior scenes are far superior to anything ever seen until now. The problem with this version is the colour as Ridley Scott paints with light never for-seeing "Hi Def" when this was being shot over 20 years before. With that in mind it meant he could use poetic licence with framing and adjusting hues when filming the wonderful Arizonian landscape and the rich blue sky's..its a shame because much of the vibrancy has been lost and the use of tinted filters to give "effect" or "atmosphere" are clearly visible on many of the wide shots. But that's not to say that it makes the film look poor or up to much to enjoy..its the best version there will probably be and if you have a good Blu-ray player like mine that is able to play in Hi-Def "and" at 24 FPS (frames per second) , the motion is superb with the smoothest of non picture grain or nasty "duel-layering" totally removed from what most have seen until now. Skin tones are clear , the tiny blood speckles can clearly be seen on Louise's face when she is in the bathroom waiting for Thelma , and though the scenes in "Monument Vally" look cold and muted in the early morning light , the final Grand Canyon shots look stunning and every dust cloud has every detail and swirl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thelma & Louise - we're fugitives now, right? 4 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Thelma & Louise is one of those unfortunately all too rare movie gems which really engages the viewer. Watch it with a good friend and you'll find yourselves energised by the zest for life displayed by Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in their stand out performances. Like Thelma and Louise, you'll want to ditch your jobs for the weekend and beg, borrow or steal a classic convertible car, before setting off on a road trip adventure along the USA's dusty mid-western highways.
The premise of the film is simple - put two ordinary people in an extraordinary situation and watch what happens as events start to snowball. Davis's bored housewife and Sarandon's diner-waitress are typical of thousands of women the world over. A chance encounter on the way to a run-of-the-mill weekend holiday in the mountains starts a chain of happenstance that thrusts the two friends into a situation where there are no signposts and no rules.
Thelma & Louise is often classified as a 'chick flick', but this is perhaps somewhat misleading. Certainly it is true that this is a film about two women, and the men in the story are shown as ineffectual or lacking in understanding (although watch for an entertaining appearance by Brad Pitt which is regarded as his breakthrough role). However one of the main themes dealt with is the emotive and perennially grey area surrounding attempted rape and how the reporting of it is dealt with - this is clearly not the fluff and insubstantiality usually associated with chick flicks. However, despite this and despite the outcome of the film (which on one level could be viewed as tragic), the brilliant and insightful cinematography of Ridley Scott leaves the viewer upbeat and with a tremendous sense of freedom.
