Andrew says: Feb. 20, 2011

Twister the movie not the board game, is PG-13 for scenes of intense danger. The Blu Ray case didn’t mention profanity. It was used in everyday conversation rather than in scenes of intense danger, where some may deem that more acceptable. I would also question the occupation of the female therapist and her conversations on the telephone. The initial review could also do with some editing, but I do agree with its conclusions.
