Goofs

In the fictional Weather Service offices in St. Louis, there is a scene of reporting equipment for various counties in Missouri. One device is labeled as "Columbia." This should actually be "Boone," the name of the county in which the town Columbia is located. Albeit, several of these counties are actually monitored by the Kansas City/Pleasant Hill National Weather Service location, it's possible for St. Louis to have reporting equipment for them.

If only Mystery Science Theatre was still on...
17 November 2002 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

This film would be perfect. Even without commentary, it's so stupidly hillarious it's worth watching. Clearly directed by some kind of partially trained monkey and edited by his cousin. While it starts a bit slow, it quickly kicks in with various scenes of lightning mischief. Who ever know lighting could go so slow!? Highly recommended!
