..or, The Debi Newberry Problem.
In Episode 2, the Chicks take on 1997’s Grosse Pointe Blank. A tale about a hitman, a high school reunion and a long lost love. Starring John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Alan Arkin, and Dan Ackroyd, Grosse Pointe Blank, at its heart, is a rom-com, which just might, as it turns out, be the movie’s downfall. Not sure you agree?
