R | | Adventure, Crime, Drama
Two best friends set out on an adventure, but it soon turns around to a terrifying escape from being hunted by the police, as these two girls escape for the crimes they committed.
In an interesting twist of fate, Brad Pitt lost out on the role of Brian McCaffrey in Backdraft (1991) to William Baldwin, who then had to be released from his contract to play the small part of J. D. in Thelma & Louise (1991) that was re-cast with Brad Pitt.
I had a suggestion that we go to the police, but you didn't like that, so frankly, Louise, I'm out of ideas.
Louise: Well, what's the big rush, Thelma? I mean, if we give 'em enough time, they'll come to us.
When Louise comes out of the diner and gets in the car, the top is down, and even though it has obviously been raining (ground is wet, etc.) the car's interior is dry.
