Helen Hunt. Flying Cows. Tornadoes that Growl.
These are just a few of the powerful elements bringing the thunder to this month’s Hecklevision presentation: TWISTER! This 1996 action-romance adventure film demolished box offices and went on to be nominated for two Academy Awards. It stars Helen Hunt as Dr. Jo, a no-nonsense meteorologist who seeks to get even with every twister that dare touch ground. Her and her sassy weather squad (the sassiest being none other than Philip Seymour Hoffman) are attempting to launch their latest data-retrieving robot into the eye of a tornado when the unexpected happens: Jo’s estranged husband, Bill (Bill Paxton) shows up with his new girlfriend.
Can a natural disaster repair a broken marriage? How many cows will actually fly? Hey, is that the guy from The Princess Bride? You can answer all these questions and more as TWISTER is presented in Hecklevision!
