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.
seriously under rated
This movie seems to have gotten a bad rep on IMDb. Less than 5/10??? It
ain't Shakespeare, but it's better than that.
This movie was unpretentious and fun. You could clearly see that
everyone involved in this project was having a good time.
Tank Girl is a campy comic-book splashed up on your screen. The folks
who take it too seriously should lighten up. It was well written (as
camp) and I really enjoyed all of the characters. It's the ultimate "In
your face" movie. The feminist subtext was interesting. I didn't notice
it right off, I was too busy enjoying the ride. But if you look at all
of the characters, it's the women who are strong, and all of the male
characters are either villains or are defective in some way (1/2 human
It was (and is) one of my favourite flicks and I can be very critical
of badly done movies.
