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.

Trivia

The song "Girl U Want" played during the film's title sequence was performed by Devo. They re-recorded it to sound like the Soundgarden version, which was too expensive to license. See more »

Goofs

The Tank alternates between having a silver machine gun and not having one. The gun alternates between an Uzi 9mm and a 40 caliber. It looks physically smaller after Tank Girl has "fixed it up", and its size changes constantly. See more »

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.

great comic fun!!
24 September 2000 | by (Pretoria, South Africa) – See all my reviews

Okay so not all people are comic lovers and neither am I. But this movie is wonderful fun. So maybe being male I find the girl more entertaining than necessary but it is still funny. One should not forget that this movie is based on a comic strip and therefor very simple and (slightly)predictable. There is no deep story here. It is a movie to watch with friends and enjoy the music(Bjork, Portishead, etc) and glib retorts of tank girl herself. Why the low ratings?? Maybe people just don't appreciate the humour and subtle jokes. Like the buffalo being a water buffalo! Think about it, it is very funny in context. This movie is a must-see cult classic. So maybe not Malcolm Macdowell's best(that is clockwork orange). Enjoy!
