Audience Reviews for Twister

A man seeks to reconnect with his daughter and her alcoholic mother, who rarely leave the family mansion they share with the family patriarch (Harry Dean Stanton) and a weirdo artist brother/uncle (Crispin Glover). With interesting characters portrayed by intriguing actors (there's even a cameo by William S. Burroughs), it's a movie that keeps teasing that it's just about to get really good... then it ends.

Don't get this movie confused with the 90s action adventure about tornado chasers! No, this is a comedy/drama movie about an eccentric family and their problems relating to people outside of their relatives. It's really very interesting, and the actors are good. I like it.

1/2 star and I am being nice, I mean 93 minutes of sleep would been more of an adventure then this movie was. Yes it was that bad. I am trying to see all of Suzy Amis, at least I was till this point. I have seen some bad movies in my life and at least I found one or two good parts in a bad movie, but good luck trying to find one in this movie. The movie is based on the 1981 Novel OH written by: Mary Robison's, The many reviews I have seen say that this family was trapped together in a house during a tornado, how untrue, a tornado past threw the town but trapped, I think Not. So why the Movie was called twister is beyond me. But confuse this not with the 1996 Movie Twister this is about tornado's. One of the few movies I am glad it was over when it was over even thought it was over when it started. 1/2 star
