Early on chasing after Jo(Helen Hunt) Jonas(Cary Elews) pulls up alongside Bill(Bill Paxton) and Bill calls him a "Nightcrawler". Bill Paxton would go to co-star with Jake Gylenhall in the film Nightcrawler, though in this film the remark refers to Jonas being not as competent a storm chaser as Bill and Jo whereas in Nightcrawler it refers to independent or stringer camerapersons capturing violent and bloody footage for news stations.

I get a lot of stick from friends for saying this, but: I really like Twister. I enjoy a good thoughtful film as much as the next stuck-up film snob, but I also love damned good action flicks.
Twister is a big dumb summer blockbuster with no pretensions whatsoever. I *like* the fact that the money is all up there on the screen - lots of tornadoes ripping apart farmhouses and throwing trucks around. I *like* that it's one long chase movie. I *like* looking at Helen Hunt's beautiful face. I saw Twister twice at the cinema, and at least three times since - and I've enjoyed it every single time. Can you get a better recommendation than that?
Twister will never satisfy some people... in particular, those who watch it, for some strange reason, expecting a cerebral masterpiece. Enjoy it for what it is: One of the best summer blockbusters ever.
