Best answer: Obviously not all roles are the same, and not all opinions are the same.

Best answer: How about the witch in Hansel and Gretel? She's living by herself in the forest and two little brats show up and start eating her house. Or the mice that get turned into horses to get Cinderella to the party. What happens to them afterward? They're mice again but still attached to a coach? UPDATE: As I... show more

Best answer: Try Born Yesterday. Billie Dawn might be what you seek.
