The Contenders #021 – Whip It (2009)
The Addington siblings risk bruises, broken bones, and (in Tobin’s case) an inability to skate as they zip around the track with Whip It, Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut. Special guest Shelly Clark comes along for the ride as they discuss Ellen Page as a leading actor, Kristen Wiig’s (surprising?) depth, and Tobin’s admiration for domineering middle-aged women. Then, we each build our own roller derby teams from all actors we’ve discussed so far, and YOU get to decide the winner!
