The UK cinema version was uncut though all video/DVD releases were cut by 1 second to remove two instances of the word "fuck" in order for the film to receive a PG rating. The BBFC added that "The swearing was very indistinct and we didn't hear it on the cinema version, but VHS and DVD versions are cut to remove it". See more »
I thoroughly enjoyed TWISTER! I saw it in theaters and was completely blown away! (No pun intended.) I loved the big, loud, thrilling action sequences and the fun characters. Although most people criticize the writing as being poor, I actually thought most of it was quite clever. Unlike worse action movies, you actually understand the characters' personality.
The cast is great! Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Cary Elwes, Jami Gertz, Lois Smith, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alan Ruck, Anthony Rapp, and the rest of the cast (as well as Jan De Bont, Steven Spielberg, and Michael Crichton) make this an entertaining and educational movie!
