As for complaints that Thelma & Louise indulges in gratuitous violence, Khouri believes they arise from a double standard. Scores of action pictures show men pulling the trigger and putting down women, she points out. "For men, they're considered healthy fantasy." But when women are shown doing the same things, Khouri argues, "they say it's a propaganda tool. That's an absolute insult to the intellect of women. This is an adventure film. It's a film about women outlaws. People should just relax."
