Director Rachel Talalay fought a battle with the studio over the edit. The studio insisted on removing scenes of Rebecca Buck (Lori Petty) and her mutant love interest Booga (Jeff Kober) in bed together from the video and DVD release of the film. The scenes had appeared in the original theater release. 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.

Great fun and visually interesting, with some wonderful one-liners and buckets of attitude.
One of the best films ever based on a comic, Tank Girl should not be taken seriously, but it's enormous fun, and a badly needed send-up of all those testosterone-pumped action movies. Instead of the usual male buddies, you have two sassy young woman, while a genetically modified and not very bright kangaroo plays the part of the Bond girl. All the leads perform well, particularly McDowell as the villain, and the script has some great one-liners, even if the plot is pretty dumb (it's a comic, ok? Get over it.)
