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

The Water & Power tanks are actually cold war era Soviet PT-76 light tanks. They are amphibious.
Post "re-paint", Tank Girl's tank is a heavily modified WW2-era M5A1 "Stuart" light tank with a heavily modified superstructure. Substantially smaller than the PT-76, it doesn't normally have the large gun, barbecue, and lawn chair. See more »
When the Rippers first capture Tank Girl and Jet Girl, Tank Girl's wrists are strapped together. During the ensuing action, her wrists are briefly untied before being strapped together again. 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.

IF your looking for a movie that is intellectual, smart, sassy and leaves you thinking you have found the wrong movie. If you're looking for a movie that has its own type of humor, some good laughs, and leaves you thinking that was one silly movie- you've got it. Although this may not be a movie for the average type of person, if you have a sense of humor and adventure you can admire Tank Girl for the work it is and admire Lori Petty's performance in the role she was born for.
