Gas.......phew!!!!
19 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Although made in 1981, you'll think you've made your way back to the early seventies watching this stinker, and not in a good retro kinda sense either.If you are an adolescent male, and up to wasting 90 minutes of your life listening to bad jokes, this could be the one. There's tons of gratuitous sexual references (nothing ever happens), really bad writing, a boring car chase, and a performance by Donald Sutherland that even his mom would cringe at. To be avoided, this movie bites.
