(at around 58 mins) Jan de Bont said he regretted thinking of the hail sequence because it took so long to do and was very difficult. Also the crew couldn't find ice blocks big enough in Oklahoma for the hail making machine. They ended up having to find them in other states and some were obtained from the Burlington Ice Company in Burlington, Iowa. The ice blocks were made special by pouring milk in with the water, so the hail would show up better on film. See more »
When the telephone pole falls on the truck, you see Dorothy get thrown off the bed and the tailgate gets broken off along with it. A couple of scenes later, the tailgate is back and hanging there like it was untouched, and the pole is no longer there. See more »
Look, all I'm saying is don't fold the maps.
I didn't fold the maps.
Yeah, well Kansas is a mess, there's a big crease right through Wichita. ROLL the maps.

Twister is a fun movie to watch. I think Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt
give excellent performances. This movie has a great soundtrack. I do
not know why people hate this movie. This is one of Jan De Bont's best
films. He also directed one of my other favorite movie Speed. Normally
I think all of Van Halen's songs are trashy except for the songs for
Twister. I like the sound and visual effects of this film. Not since
The Wizard of Oz have I seen better tornadoes. The first time I saw
this movie I was blown away. I actually like this better than
Independence Day. I really like the end song "Respect the Wind"
performed by Edward and Alex Van Halen. I wanna get the Twister
