You haven't seen bad-ass until you've seen Thelma & Louise. Sick of their hopeless marriages and dead-end jobs, a pair of Arkansas-based best friends decide to take a trip out of town. However, the mini vacation goes awry when Louise (Sarandon) shoots a rapist attacking Thelma (Davis). Thus begins the thrilling cross country adventure of two on-the-run fugitives booking it to Mexico to escape prison. Along the way, we not only fall in love with two of the most referenced female characters in movie history, but we're also introducedto one of today's biggest stars, Brad Pitt. —TA
