Yes I liked the raisin sub-plot! -- very moving

I can't see many actresses upstaging the performance of MSM
in Benny & Joon. Indeed I can think of many popular movies
where MSMs presence would have vastly improved on the
performances given. But what about the other side of the coin,
which roles should she steer clear of? Would she be any good
in an all-action film? A comedy? (If she hasn't already been in one).
Any thoughts?

PS Mike -- I see your sig is under construction. How about using some
of your excellent joke collection to fill it ;-)
