  1. Fanning is a child actor with a grown-up soul, and every move, every breath, seems mysteriously right.
  2. 50
    Pretty but overwrought, Hounddog doesn't deserve its infamy, nor does it merit being seen or remembered.
  3. 50
    In the wake of the inadvertent betrayal that leads to her now-notorious rape (a sequence that, ironically, seems to have lost the horrific impact it needs), the film turns listless.

    It was received at Sundance 2007 with a resounding thud. Not because of this controversial rape scene, but because, well, it just wasn't good. Unfortunately, even with over a year of rejiggering, it's still not good.

    An indigestible gumbo of Southern Gothic ingredients seasoned with snake oil, biblical hash and thoroughly unpalatable spice.
  6. 25
    Fanning gives a sensitive and fairly impressive performance. But like her over-the-top movie family, Hounddog is still trailer trash of the worst kind.
  7. Fanning is remarkably collected and even dignified. As for the rest of the gang, they ought to be returned to sender.

    Dakota Fanning s one of the most irritating actresses that I have ever seen. She is a poor actress and always tries to tackle roles way Dakota Fanning s one of the most irritating actresses that I have ever seen. She is a poor actress and always tries to tackle roles way beyond her acting range. The movie is too slow, already been done - therefore predictable. And if she sang the title song one more time.
