'Thelma & Louise' 20 Years Later!

Like many a gay guy, I looooved "Thelma & Louise." Susan Sarandon has always delivered, and I always had a deep affection for Geena Davis dating back to her days as the Keatons' incompetent maid on "Family Ties." (That she reminds me of my mom only adds to the affection.) So it was with complete jealously when I pulled these photos of a recent "T&L" reunion in Toronto, where the women celebrated the 20th anniversary of their outlaw classic with screening and a Q&A with Noah Cowan at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. (You know how much I LOVE these cast reunions.)

Sadly, Brad Pitt was nowhere to be found.

The film was nominated for six Oscars -- including best actress nods for both leads -- and won for best original screenplay.

It wouldn't be a trip to Canada without a visit from Edith Prickley!

Ha! I love that you refer to Andrea Martin as Edith Prickley. She was always my favorite Second City character.
