    Ethan and Lenny's story is silly, good-natured and full of unlikely moves, just like the titular twister.

    The semiserious comedy by director Sven Pape is in its own category, and unfortunately it's not always an interesting one.

    In trying to qualify as mordant satire, charming rom-com, uplifting buddy movie about underdogs trying to stick it to the man and the most meta story ever told, L.A. Twister sprains itself badly.
  4. 40
    The film offers no new insights into its people or into the dynamics of the Hollywood machine -- the whole affair, played for low-intensity laughs, is numbingly familiar.
  5. 38
    Serves up a silly story and clunky dialogue that gets better than it deserves from Jennifer Aspen as Lenny's would-be girlfriend.
  6. Reviewed by: Melissa Levine

    It's the solipsistic, obvious, misogynistic, and occasionally redeeming tale.
