Dakota Fanning's best perfomance

I haven't had a chance to watch ''Taken'' miniseries yet, so I guess ''I am Sam'' gets my vote.

She was great in Taken but shined in Man on Fire, she had to make you like her character in the first hour so we could accept the lengths Denzel Washington went through to avenge her.

Man On Fire would be her best performance IMHO. She played very naturally against Denzel.

I loved her in I Am Sam. They basically had her acting someone twice her age.

On the other end of the spectrum her appearance of Friends was quite forgettable though.

I loved Dakota's performance in "Uptown Girls" as well. Both roles (Uptown Girls and Man on Fire) have Dakota portraying a daughter that is left behind by her parents (so to speak), and becomes attached to the person caring for her. In this case, Denzel in MOF and Molly Gunn in UG.

Also, Dakota was in "Trapped", which I didn't realize. I guess I should watch the movie again.

Duuuude...that's not gross when you're talking about the Olsens or Lindsay Lohan. Dakota Fanning, on the other hand...that's just creepy.

As soon as I saw the title, I knew what it would eventually sink to. She was born in 1994 for God's sake!

Personally, I think her best was in Uptown Girls, but I have only seen her in that and Cat in the Hat (where she wasn't bad. Can't blame her for a bad script).

^^ Dude, pick up I am Sam. Sean Penn and Michelle Pheiffer are excellent as well. A great movie.

There are entire units of the FBI dedicated to scouring the internet in search of men like you.

She is what, 9? 10? This is sick. You need professional help. Better yet, just kill yourself now before you victimize somebody else.

If the guy was a sicko, he would have said 12 or 14, 18 is perfectly legal!

Actually she's been great in everything I've seen her in, but I never saw Man on Fire. I'll get the DVD though. She was good in Taken but that whole series was just too long. Trapped was barely an average movie but she was good in it. It's on cable all the time.

What you people don't realize is that Original Desmond is actually a time traveller from the year 2318. He happens to know that in 2012, Fanning will star in Martin Scorcese's masterpiece film, which will go on to win every Academy Award and Golden Globe and replace Citizen Kane and Lawrence of Arabia on every critics "Best Movie of All Time" List. Dakota Fanning will forever more be known as the greatest actor in the history of mankind.

This film, of course, is Ghoulies VI.

I think so, because she hasn't really played a brat except in Uptown Girls. And I can't say that I have seen her on any talk shows to judge her personally.

I haven't seen any of her movies, but I've seen her on a handful of talkshows. Everytime I see her I want to bash her over the head with a blunt object.

The detectives in Colorado assigned to the Ramsey case would like a word with you.
