Storyline

Tank Girl (Rebecca) and her friends are the only remaining citizens living in the wasteland that is Earth, where all the remaining water is controlled by Water and Power, the mega corporation/government that runs the territory. While incarcerated at W + P, Tank Girl and her new friend Jet Girl break out and steal... a tank and a jet. After meeting some mutant kangaroo/humans, and rescuing her little girl (adopted by her friends), the kangaroos and the girls kick Water and Powers' butt.

Quotes

[first lines]
Tank Girl: 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.

studio ruins a great film!!!
10 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This should have been the best film of the year, but instead the bureaucrats at MGM/UA decided to let "focus groups" (ever notice how unclear these so called focus groups can make a film!?!) decide what worked and what didn't. That's when the studio stepped in and butchered Ms. Talalay's masterpiece! This film would have made so much more sense had the studio not changed the ending and left in the flashback scenes in their entirety (as it is, only one shot remained, and it makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER if you're not aware of the BUTCHERING JOB the studio execs did on this film!!!). Still, this is one of the most original films I've seen to date, and think that it still deserves more credit than it ever got! Ms. Talalay and all did a stupendous job!
