I am trying to use minus front on a grouping of objects (object 1) that I want to cut out of object 2. But when I click minus front, it actually changes half the group shapes. Any idea why? I've never had this happened before.

Whenever shapes change in unexpected manners you need to check the Align To Pixel Grid setting for the object. Most often, that is the culprit.
