Twister

Revealing mistake: They wouldn't be able to walk or run nearly so easily when near a tornado. In ametuer video footage of real tornados, the people could only move quite slowly, and were walking on an angle of 30 degrees from upright.

Revealing mistake: While driving the red truck through the rolling house, Dorothy is mounted on the back of the truck. There are some very sensitive and fragile instruments located on the top sides of Dorothy that stick up above the cab of the truck. These would certainly have been torn off while crashing through the walls of the house, turning Dorothy into a useless pile of junk.

Revealing mistake: When they are at the drive-in movie place, Melissa comes out of her room when she sees the wind blowing through the curtains. When she steps out, other windows in the motel are open and the curtains are absolutely still while the curtains in her room continue to blow.

Ben's Mom

Revealing mistake: When Jo and Bill are running past the sunflowers, just after the barn has flown past them, the sunflowers aren't even swaying. Sunflowers would blow over at a tiny breeze, let alone an F5 tornado blowing around them. (01:36:45)

Revealing mistake: Can you imagine driving a truck into a city totally demolished by a twister and actually parking in front of the house of their friend (Hunt's Aunt)? There would be wood and nails and debris galore (NOT TO MENTION LIVE POWER LINES) about the streets which, of course, results in electrocutions and flat tires. They manage to rescue the old lady out of the house, as well as her dog, and they get immediate assistance from an ambulance crew....

Revealing mistake: When Bill and Jo are driving towards the first tornado together (arguing), it's clear there's no windshield in the red truck. There's no rear view mirror and it's perfectly clear. During the next few scenes, a rear view mirror appears and there is mud on the windshield around the wiper tracks.

Ben's Mom

Revealing mistake: The weather really is unusual in Oklahoma, as in some scenes, the cornfields were ripe and brown, and in others, they were fresh and green. Obviously shot at different parts of the season.

Revealing mistake: During the scene when the repair shop is falling apart from the tornado, a wire can be seen pulling the drive in theater sign into the building in a brief shot.

Mistakes

Trivia

The oil tank truck that narrowly misses Bill and Jo's truck during the final tornado sequence bears the logo of the "Benthic Petroleum" company, a fictional company that also appeared in James Cameron's "The Abyss" - The same special effects company worked on both films.
