I've not seen much with her in to completely judge her acting ability, but as I selected in the classification, she is highly overused. For example, I wanted to see something on TV today, yet decided not to when I found that Dakota was in it. I believe that no child her age can truly act well, and that she's only being used when TV shows and movies need an actress her age, and it's better using her, because she's famous. In a few years, I think there's a high chance of her becoming the next Lindsay Lohan - and I don't mean that in a positive view.
If you're a fan of her, fine. But there's something about her that I just don't like.
