Corrected entry: In one scene Lori Petty (Tank Girl) is lying chest-down in the sand outside of her house, firing some kind of high-powered rifle at the bad guys, who are in the process of raiding the house. In that scene you can clearly see a hat on her head. She moves and the hat falls off, then we see the house and back to Lori, whose hat is now mysteriously back on her head again.

Correction: She puts the hat back on while the camera is off her.

Corrected entry: I could be wrong but, when Lori Petty is para-sailing using the tank towards the end of the film, the bullets ricochet off the straps. What the heck kind of parachute straps are strong enough to deflect bullets?

Correction: Seeing as how this is the future, and a movie based on a comic, it is quite possible, and very likely, that Rebecca's parachute straps are made of something that deflects bullets. Obviously so, considering it was deliberately filmed this way.

Corrected entry: When Tank Girl is on guard duty near the beginning of the film, she offers to trade Sam the dangerball for some food. However, she doesn't want to hand over the ball until she gets the food. Then they are attacked and Sam is kidnapped. How does Sam come to have the dangerball later on at Liquid Silver?

Correction: Just because we don't see Sam bring her food and get the dangerball doesn't mean she didn't. There was just a time gap between when she left and the attack.

Grumpy Scot

Corrected entry: When the Water and Power boss first sticks the water-sucker into his captain's back, and lets him fall to the ground, he pulls out the device once it's full and walks across the glass-ridden floor, drinking from the bottle. When he pulls out more than just the bottle, it looks like all but the needle-suckers stuck in the captain's back, but in the next shot it's just the bottle. He didn't have time to detach the bottle and get rid of the device.

Correction: This is not an error. You can see that he bends the "cup" portion of the device so that it pops free of the mechanical section that was stuck in the other man's body.

Continuity mistake: When Lori is shoved down the pipe, check out the close-ups as she slides down. At least twice she has one blue eye and one green eye - though her eyes are blue in every other scene.
