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.Written by

Reg E. Cathey was a fan of the Tank Girl comic and would have liked to play the role of Stevie (a "Rastafarian Aborigine" character from the comic who does not appear in the film). The character he ended up portraying (DeeTee) plays a saxophone because Cathey brought his own saxophone to his audition. See more »
When Tank Girl and Jet Girl are hiding out with the Rippers, all of the Rippers have large, kangaroo-like feet. In the final battle scenes, they're all wearing normal, human-sized shoes. During the cartoon ending, Booga has large, kangaroo-like feet. 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.

This one is destined to be a cult classic, if it already isn't. I have not seen the comic book but if you like your movies a little off kilter then, this one is great! Lori Petty was so perfect for the roll of Tank Girl it hurts. Not only does she look the part but she also manages to spout the one-liners in a way that has to make you laugh. I love the way they combine images from the comic strip with the live action. A kick-butt soundtrack, along with a great cast, and an awesome script makes this movie a must-see for any odd comedy fan.
