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.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City, to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
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

The reason Dustin is wearing the OU (University of Oklahoma) hat is because the producers wanted to spite OU for not letting the OU symbol be on Dorothy. See more »
When Bill and Jo are in the yellow pick-up going after the first tornado, there is a yellow raincoat with a visible metal snap hanging from a hook mounted on the rear window directly behind Jo. As the scene progresses, it moves to a position higher up and off the window when Jo says, "We're moving to intercept, guys. Get ready to set up." Then Bill gets off the road and down into the ditch, right before Bill says, "Are we having fun yet?" the raincoat is back hanging from the hook on the window behind Jo in a different position (no snap visible).

There were 2 good things about this movie: If I ever need to inflict pain and misery upon an enemy I can send them a copy of this film, and if I ever want to make myself sick (for the purposes of calling into work or whatever!) I can rent this monstrosity and watch 5 minutes of it.
People say it has wonderful special effects, and even this point I must disagree with. If you have ever been in or near a real twister, you will notice that it is an entirely different scene than what you see in this film. A real twister, if it was even twice as far away from you as it was these people in this film, would instill nothing less than sheer TERROR in everyone involved. Sheer terror meaning: there would be no bickering about "Dorothy" or "the other scientists" or "divorce papers". These special effects did not do justice to the ambience of a real twister, and the acting was reminiscent of my 3rd grade Christmas play. I won't even bother mentioning the ridiculous 'plot'. This film is in my top 5 worst films (Hollywood productions) ever made.
Jan De Bont: What's the matter with you?? Even an action movie needs to have REASONABLE chemistry between actors... and the dialogue in Twister reminds me of the ridiculous dialogue in another equally horrible flick: "Speed".. And sequels are bad enough as it is, but a sequel to "Speed"????????!!!!!!???? I'm glad I have not seen it... I would be forever scarred if I had.
