About the lesbian kiss scene, it really is quite tame. It takes place during the first third of the movie, where both Jet Girl and Tank Girl are being kept prisoners in Keslee's mine or whatever it is. Jet Girl is being harassed by Kesslee's sideshow, and Tank Girl solves the situation by kissing Jet Girl in front of him, which results in the man being disgusted at it and leaving them alone.

The (faded dialogue) quote is actually "Crumpets and tea."  As in: "Tasty!  Crumpets and tea; all in favor say aye."

 This film has some definate positive points,
including the great props, costumes, design,
and political play. But it still stinks.
Come on, this is the movie equivalent to
Poochie the Dog. Tank Girl is SO proactive
and in-your-face, spouting out hip
one-liners without adding any weight to
the dialogue. Take Mad Max, punkify him
by 20%, and make it PC (hey, lets
change him into a girl!) and youve got
the basic idea down. The comic may
have been something really interesting;
but as with all comics, when making the movie they
obviously had to make a movie.
In this case, they failed to translate it
coherently. That is not to say it isnt
entertaining. Bud I'd much rather watch
something that makes sense,like Buckaroo Banzai
or Zardoz.

A B-Movie the deserves to become a classic.
While it has it's flaws, it stands up to repeat viewings and it's dialog works it's way into your normal vocab.

Lori Petty as tank girls is on-liner magic.

I think the reviewer was pot on in the comment that normal people are almost incapable of enjoying this movie.  I thank nebulous, ill-defined deitied every day that I am abnormal.  In terms of presenting a comic book on-screen, this is almost a precursor of "The Hulk"-- I wonder if Ang Lee took a lot of notes watching this...?

This movie is the best movie ever. Period.

(Well, almost.)

Hey, I liked this movie. Yeah, it's certainly unique for a superhero film, but I enjoyed it. Malcolm Mc Dowell made a good villain, Lori Petty was funny, I loved the scenes when they were interacting with each other. This movie's no "Spider- Man," but it's definitely better than "Batman and Robin" and "The Hulk" put together, though, admittedly, that's not saying much.

Dude. The "real" Tank Girl would never waste beer like that.

I like this movie and I really don't think the review should have been so harsh.  It was a fun movie to watch.  Sure it has it flaws but who cares, as long people can enjoy it.  I'm not one to rip most movies apart.  If someone gives a movie a bad review usually it's more than likely something I will watch.  I won't say I'm normal.  I never read the comic for Tank Girl, but even if I did I doubt if it would be disappointing.

I don't think my review was that harsh. I mean, I gave it three slimes, so it should be clear that I think it is quite decent. I also had lots of fun when I saw it for the first time. But yet you have to admit that it has many flaws, and that most of the people who watched it are still trying to recover. Read the IMDB comments if you have the time, they are really amusing.

Sure it has flaws (basic, fundamental, deeply rooted flaws), but really, what Malcolm McDowell movie doesn't?  (A Clockwork what?)

Cute dialogue, a more-or-less comprehensible plot (stack it up against, say, 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico', and see if Tank Girl doesn't start making loads and loads of sense!), and a song-and-dance routine.  And Joan Jett on the soundtrack!

Really, where is the bad side?

"Normal" people CAN'T watch this. Thankfully, I'm hardly normal. I watched this WAY before I even knew what the f**k a b-movie was, and now that I am clear, I say this is a masterpiece of the genre, easily in the same class as "Army of Darkness".

I agree fully with this reveiw,and think that the owner of this web site made a good choice in putting tank girl on this web site. I guess the thrashers lost some of there intelligence in the process, because they certainly had no taste in poetry. Well, there are more horrible movies that await me, So good ridants!!!

(english not perfect)
The best parts of this movie is the cartoons. Too bad they're too short because they're really funny,unusual and dynamic. I hope someday to find a dvd with all the deleted scenes. I saw them on the collection cards and they are interesting.
