Thelma & Louise (1991)
That movie a chick flick ? Never in a month of Sundays
Those who claim that Thelma & Louise is a chick flick or a feminist movie must have just tasted the latest fancy drug. Thelma & Louise are 2 poor-frustrated-uptight ladies, who accidentally-unfortunately commit a crime. So that, after a moment of panic, they try their best to flee from the police, which they keep being afraid of till the end. Their getaway yet makes them reveal and express themselves on the loose. But at the same time, they can't help going on phoning their sweet husbands/men, before phoning back just to talk with the brilliant policeman who's after them and give him enough time to find where they call from. Oh yeah. Meanwhile, they don't forget to behave as righters of wrongs with a dull teamster (what a sweet message), to have great conversations like 'how beautiful a night', 'you are wonderful', 'I'm awake, you know, wide-awake like I've never been before', 'we've already lost all that we had to lose', or, with Brad Pitt, 'Thelma how is it you ain't got any kids? I mean God gets you something special, I think you oughta pass it on' (cause women are only made to make babies you know) and so on. And of course, we quickly learn that Louise has a heavy past actually, in Texas, yes she's been raped in another time. Therefore, you know, she's a victim, hey, that's why she shot the man, it's a legitimate-- revenge (oh, OK, I see).
Afterwards, their marvelous road trip allows them to outrun obviously-stupid police cars in such gorgeous shots that show dozens (if not hundreds or thousands) of cops cars and a helicopter behind their nice and lonely little car. And guess what, they eventually realize they've taken a road that leads them to nowhere but to the top of a huge cliff above the Great Canyon. Terrific. So, after once more being portrayed as 2 poor victims by the so-smart Harvey Weinstein's character ('stop making them suffer' or 'hey you're gonna shoot women', hey right, feeble women can't be shot), they kiss each other, weep a little bit (coz feeble women a pleonasm certainly-- are used to weeping you know) and throw themselves into the emptiness. What a great script. Mix the whole thing with tons of moralistic clichés and some unbearable pop country music and you got it. This outstanding final metaphor just aims at making sure that you understand how appropriate and conventional, ie impoverished and empty, this insipid guys flick is
