Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett, the creators of the Tank Girl comic have since spoken poorly of their experiences in creating the film, calling it "a bit of a sore point" for them. Hewlett said, "The script was lousy; me and Alan kept rewriting it and putting Grange Hill jokes and Benny Hill jokes in, and they obviously weren't getting it. They forgot to film about ten major scenes so we had to animate them ... it was a horrible experience." See more »

Listen up, cause I'm only telling you this once. I'm not bedtime story lady, so pay attention. It's 2033. The world is *screwed* now. You see, a while ago this humongous comet came crashing into the earth. Bam, total devastation. End of the world as we know it. No celebrities, no cable TV, no water. It hasn't rained in 11 years. Now 20 people gotta squeeze inside the same bathtub - so it ain't all bad.

When this movie first came out there was a lot of hype and I was keen to see it. Unfortunately (at least I believed it was unfortunate at the time), I never got around to it and so it was consigned to the "I'll get the video out one day" bucket.
Recently, it was screened on TV so I recorded it. I was excited. I had waited a 7 years for this. And that is the why I forced myself to sit through the whole thing despite the signs being bad initially, falling to awful, then 'oh my god' and somehow still managing to sink further by the end.
This is the first time I've ever written a review of a movie for IMDB but was compelled to do so to try to save others from the suffering I endured as a result of this movie.
To name but a few of the very worst elements (and I really am skipping a *lot* of other bad things): i) Continuous "cool" "attitude" from the "sexy" heroine. Note the usage quotes to indicate those terms I believe to be woefully misused. By the end I really *really* wanted the bad guys to kill her. ii) Mutants (including Ice-T!!) dressed up as human kangaroos. Suspension of disbelief became challenging at this point. iii) "Humour" on a par with that of David Brent in The Office. For those who haven't seen The Office, David Brent is the ultimate exponent of not-funny-but-thinks-he-is and the point of the program is largely how cretinous he really is. Actually, Tank girl's writers were possibly worse. iv) No, sorry, can't really go on as the flashbacks are too painful.
Tank Girl has now taken the crown as the worst movie I have ever seen away from Highlander 2. I really didn't believe it possible, but there you go.
