About the Movie
A mile-wide, 300 miles-per-hour force of total devastation is coming at you! In this adventure swirling with cliffhanging excitement and awesome special effects, Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton play scientists pursuing the most destructive weather front to sweep through mid-Americas Tornado Alley in 50 years. By launching electronic sensors into the funnel, the storm chasers hope to obtain data to create an improved warning system. But to do so, they must intercept the twisters' deadly path. The chase is on!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Science aside, it's not hard to feel that these excitable characters are a wee bit berserk. But the movie works as escapism even if you do know enough to come in out of the rain.
Rotten: You know a movie is in trouble when a cow provides its only moment of authentic human interest.
Fresh: A summer crowd-pleaser worthy of its wind.
Rotten: Even more than with most of Michael Crichton's concoctions, this one conveys the overwhelming impression of a mechanical entertainment, a very high concept in which the characters and their problems seem like utterly arbitrary creations.
Roll the maps!
I've been watching this movie since I was small, and it's actually inspired me to become a meteorologist in college and work for the NSSL later in life.
Movie-wise, it's great, with a lot of action and comical parts. I quote it all the time.
"Meg, where'd you get all this beef?"
"Did you see my cows out front?"
A great buy if you're a fan of natural disaster movies like The Day After Tomorrow.
I know they sell hard copies for 5.99 at Target, too!
