BEST MOVIE EVER!
19 January 2003 | by user00000000See all my reviews

Gas is downright amazing. I find it hard to believe that this was made over 20 years ago! It's still funny today! All it's jokes are absolutely pee your pants funny. It's kinda hard to find, I don't understand why. It should be in everyone's video library! I hope they release it on DVD sometime soon! BTW, if you loved Gas, I reccomend: Hog Wild Title S
