Your Stupid Minds finishes out its stunt casting double feature with the 1996 direct-to-video movie Breakaway, “starring” shamed figure skating star Tonya Harding. The sassy quotation marks are because she’s barely in the movie and her character serves almost no purpose.

Myra (Teri Fruichantie) is a mob courier who goes out on her last job. Her boss doesn’t like that very much and instructs his nephew Nicky (Michael Garganese) to kill her. She escapes, along with the $300,000 she retrieved, and pretends to be on a blind date with anthropology professor Dan (Tony Noakes) for no reason at all in order to escape. To finish the job, the mob boss hires a second hitman Grey (Joe Estevez) and everything goes wrong at once. There are also mobsters playing basketball in suits. And Tonya Harding kicks some guys.
