SUBMIT REVIEW
  • Lisa Loeb is an average actor.

    8.5
    All I know about her is that she voiced Mary Jane Watson in the show "Spider-Man(2003.)" I think she did a great job voicing her, but it wasn't anything special. Even though I think that anyone could have voiced her, I prefer her voicing MJ. She has a great voice and should appear more, though. She is talented, but I believe she could do a little bit better. She is underused, as well. Overall, while she isn't the best, I believe that she is a great actor.

    8.5/10.
