Springfield Googolplex Ep. 15 – Thelma & Louise

ThatShelf.com presents:
Springfield Googolplex
– The movie podcast for Simpsons fans.

Adam and Nate watch Thelma & Louise (1991), a groundbreaking road movie about two women escaping the patriarchy, as well as The Simpsons full spoof episode “Marge on the Lam” (S5E6). This movie brings together a breakout screenplay, career performances by Susan Sarandon and Gina Davis, and the high style of Ridley Scott.



Also in this episode:

  • Does Marge also have her arms stuck in her own metaphorical vending machines?
  • How Thelma & Louise became the Barbie phenomenon of its day
  • A star-making performance from a very young, very hot Brad Pitt
  • When a movie parody isn’t a parody
  • The movie’s cliff-top climax has been spoiled and parodied to death, but does it fly today?

Next time, Adam and Nate load up Full Metal Jacket (1933) and “Bart the General” (S1E5)!
