** This movie ricochets between this trope and Artistic License: Everything. Jonas' van getting whirled around the outside of the funnel before being ejected? Numerous videos exist of cars, big rigs and even a house being subjected to the same treatment. (The explosion was still BS, though.) The ragtag aspects of the heroes' chase vehicles? If they weren't working for a large university and being funded with a sizable grant, it's more than likely they would focus their money on the meteorological equipment, not on shiny new matching cars. And the hate for Jonas? Storm chasers doing it {{ForScience}} have frequently made disparaging comments about those who make money off of chasing; the kindest term is Weather Paparazzi.

* AnachronismStew: The first scene is set in 1969 and contains numerous errors of the time period. Jo's father mentions the tornado bearing down on his home as possibly an F5, when the Fujita scale wasn't established until 1972.

Jo's father mentions the tornado bearing down on his home as possibly an F5, when the Fujita scale wasn't established until 1972. And there were no tornadoes considered strong enough to class as F5s in 1969 anyway.
