Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
TV weatherman Bill Harding is trying to get his tornado-hunter wife, Jo, to sign divorce papers so he can marry his girlfriend Melissa. But Mother Nature, in the form of a series of intense storms sweeping across Oklahoma, has other plans. Soon the three have joined the team of stormchasers as they attempt to insert a revolutionary measuring device into the very heart of several extremely violent tornados. Written by

Bill's truck is in fact a Dodge Ram 2500 with a V10. See more »
At the start of the movie, in 1969, Jo's father is wearing a hat which first appeared in the 1980's. See more »
[Discussing at Meg's on the tornadoes they have seen so far]
No, that was a good size twister. What was it, an F3?
See, now you have lost me again.
It's the Fujita scale. It measures a tornado's intensity by how much it eats.
That one we encountered back there was a strong F2, possibly an F3.
Maybe we'll see some 4's.
That would be sweet!
4 is good. 4 will relocate your house very efficently.

idiotic, boring, silly, corny, lousy acting, nothing new
All the hype that surrounded this garbage should be heaped upon the head of the person who submitted this piffle to the general public. Heaped upon his head after being carved in granite that is. A more juvenile movie would be hard to imagine, but I suppose the folks in Hollywood can do it if anyone can. I almost became convinced while watching this film[?] that the twister had more brains than any of the characters; they didn't show me much in the way of anything except their immaterial love spats and divorce decrees. Gad, what shallow, immature dialogue. I particularly disliked the ending. The 2 heroes [chortle!] would never have survived the funnel had it gone directly over them as depicted, nor can a tornado suck a truck up its spout with such ease. In fact, it cannot be done at all. Maybe the producers of this thing expected us braindead audience types not to notice the failing of their 'big hit' because we would be so taken with the beauty of Helen Hunt [as Santa would say "Ho Ho Ho"]. What a bomb!
