THELMA & LOUISE - Road trips with your bestie are always fun...but apparently it's more fun when you flee a crime scene. The lesson learned here? It's okay to become a felon so long as you have a dependable gal pal by your side. Unfortunately both sides of this pair are not created equal, and more often than not Louise (Susan Sarandon) is cleaning up all the messes that Thelma (Geena Davis) stupidly makes/ But hey at least she joins you for the ride....and through time she catches up.
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES - I'm not sure why so many of these female bonding movies take place in the South and involve crimes or death...but this film seems to be the complete embodiment of various tropes. I've learned that filmmakers would have us believe that tomboy gal pals are the way to go and Mary Stuart Masterson's Idgie is the shining example of this. She teaches everyone the importance of female empowerment and if anyone crosses her friends....let's just say a BBQ might be involved. A [SPOILER] murderous [/SPOILER] BBQ. But not in a horrifying way apparently...more of an endearing way that will cause Kathy Bates to chuckle about it in the future.
I found her love interest too hot to pass up. Seriously Muriel get it together. You can LEARN to love a man with a face like that.You made a huge mistake Haha. [/SPOILERS] True moral of the story? Real friends like ABBA.
