    It's funny how bad movies get reappraised years later. Everything gains a sense of nostalgia to it, eventually, as they certainly don't make B movies like Tank Girl anymore.

    Lovely performances and an intriguing catalyst, but it doesn't really go anywhere all that interesting. 45 YEARS would've made a good television drama on ITV one Sunday. For some reason it's a movie.
