TiVo recorded Twister for me, which was amusing, because it’s a great example of one of my favorite genres: the Hilariously Bad Disaster Movie.

The leads, for the most part, fall to the level of the material. But look at the supporting cast, and it’s really striking how many really decent actors are in it, acting like total boobs.

Nothing, however, surprised me more than the most “Duuuuuuuuuuude!”-ish of Helen Hunt’s team o’dudes being played by none other than Oscar Winning Serious Goddamn Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Not even the fact that Twister is now ten years old.
