Twister: this meteorology household's guilty pleasure

It's April and the beginning of storm season here in the heart of Tornado Alley. It must be time for "Twister" to show up on TV -- the movie about storm chasers, starring Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton. A guilty pleasure because it's full of exciting, stupid-chaser, bad-storm-safety moments. And they toss around lots of storm-chasing buzzwords -- but that's kind of like watching an "E.R." for storm chasers, I guess. Gotta go, the Big One is about to hit the town...

And it's such a fine script:


And the tornado ripping through the drive-in with Jack Nicholson--another fine moment.
